Brilliant But Mysterious Evening Light Japanese Snowbell

  • Deep Purple-Green Foliage
  • Bright Bell-Shaped blossoms
  • A Pollinator Magnet
  • Alluring Fragrance Lasts and Lasts

Every light, playful garden has a dark side. Well, maybe not but a little dark color to accent never hurt anyone. Evening Light Japanese Snowbell (Styrax japonicus 'Evening Light') adds depth and dimension wherever it's planted.

This tree boasts bold dark greenish-purple leaves each year. It's not all whispers and shadows though, you'll fall in love at the sight of the first blossom!

Early spring the branches will smother themselves in white, bell-shaped flowers. They even face down as if they were about to play the Carol of the Bells, an interesting pick for spring, but hey it's never too early for Christmas music.

If the blooms weren't enough to sell you, the fragrance will for sure. Its sweet scent will waft through the air for weeks, perfuming the rooms of your house anywhere a window is left open.

With its stark contrasting appearance, we suggest planting it somewhere everyone can marvel at its beauty.

Use as a specimen plant in your back yard or as an accent towards the back of your cottage gardens. No matter where you end up placing it, this tree will be a hit.

Its smaller size also makes it a great option for container planting. Try using it in a large pot on either side of your entryway. Just be careful to water accordingly, container plants need more moisture than plants living in the ground.

This plant thrives in full sun. Who doesn't like basking in the sun's rays all day long? Moist well-drained soil rich in organic matter is also a great idea.

Don't wait for the neighbors to plant one of these first! Order an Evening Light Japanese Snowbell today!
