The mountain silverbell is an unusual tree for the medium-sized garden. It's notable for its clusters of pure white, pendent flowers, like bunches of snowdrops, earning the shrub a position of prominence in the garden. Even out of bloom, plants are handsome and very shapely, making excellent specimen trees. They have a second season of colour in autumn when the grey-green foliage turns bright yellow. Mature specimens also have bark which peels off for a striking winter feature. It's slow growing, forming a large shrub and eventually a small tree unless limited by pruning. Suitable for a sheltered spot in full sun (plants also tolerate some shade), it grows well on most non-acid soils.
