Very showy and elegant, Styrax japonicus (Japanese Snowbell) is a deciduous tree with gracefully spreading branches and a rounded crown. In late spring to early summer, masses of fragrant, bell-shaped, white flowers with showy golden-yellow stamens, appear in pendulous racemes. Despite flowering after the leaves have fully emerged, the blossoms are easily visible thanks to the upward posture of the foliage. The foliage of finely-pointed ovate, glossy green leaves, warms up to golden yellow and orange in the fall. The smooth gray bark exfoliates on older specimens, revealing orange inner bark that adds winter interest. –Description courtesy
