Halesia monticola var. vestita

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A delightful small tree with cascades of white, snowdrop-like flowers hanging from the underside of the branches in May. Halesia monticola var. vestita flowers reliably when young and the white flowers stand out well against the dark green foliage. This differs from Halesia carolina, in that it grows a little taller, less wide and has larger flowers. A beautiful, flowering garden tree.
