This species is native to Asia, but has been introduced into the United States because of its attractive floral display. The trees grow 10-14 m in height and produce clusters of fragrant, drooping white flowers in June. Sometimes its large leaves can obscure these dangling flowers, resulting in horticulturists favoring Japanese Snowbell for its smaller leaves.
