Halesia carolina, Carolina Silverbell, Silverbell TreeThis spectacular, spreading Snowdrop Tree bears pendants of beautiful, snowdrop-like blooms on bare stems - just before the spring foliage unfurls. As they fade, the flowers are replaced by fascinating, 4-winged, green fruits, which often persist into winter. By autumn, the lush canopy of bright green leaves turns to a buttery shade of yellow. Halesia carolina makes a superb deciduous tree that provides a long season of interest. Try under planting with woodland bulbs for a sensational spring display. Height: 5m (16'). Spread: 6m (19').

Mimosa, Silver Wattle
Pompom yellow mimosa flowers are produced on this evergreen tree against a backdrop of feathery foliage. In spring the scented, nectar-rich blooms provide a valuable source of food for bees and other insects. In mild parts of the UK, Acacia dealbata plants can be grown outdoors, making a brilliant specimen for sheltered borders. In frost prone areas grow acacia in containers, and move them to a frost free position in winter. Height: Up to 8m (26'). Spread: Up to 5m (16').More info
