Fragrant Snowbell
Styrax obassia

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.

Habitat:Planted as an ornamental, growing best in full sun to part shade.
Growth Habit:Deciduous shrub or small tree, growing up to 9 m tall.
Bloom Time:Spring.
Presence in US:Not native to the US but widely cultivated.
