Description

Family Styracaceae
Originating from Japan.

  • Elegant spreading small tree with broad deciduous leaves.
  • Profuse-scented pendulous white flowers in spring and summer
  • Easy to grow, hardy and reliable in full sun or part shade.

Handsome, broad, and strikingly veined leaves are borne abundantly on a wide-spreading branching habit. Its elegantly tiered branches slowly form a small tree or can be pruned to maintain a shrubby habit, even a miniature tree-like form.

The lush crown is adorned with a profuse, fragrant pure white flowering display in spring and summer. Hanging conspicuously in bright panicles of many individual tubular blooms, they are arranged beautifully on the horizontal branches of the panicle, with many protruding stamens. This species is rarely offered in the UK and deserves much wider use in gardens, being superior to many common blossom trees such as Amelanchier and flowering cherries. Its bright green leaves turn a rich gold in autumn, accompanied by pendant bunches of seeds with a furry green/cream covering of tiny hairs, adding to a long and varied season of display.

Easy to grow in any but strongly alkaline soils, hardy, and reliable, in part shade or full sun.

Height and spread after 3 – 4 years 2m x 1.5m
Mature height and spread after 10 – 20, years if not pruned 6m x 6m
