Halesia diptera

The Snowdrop or Silverbell tree is a stunning sight right now in the Woodland Garden.
It has formed a small tree, the leaves are mid green and ovate but the standout feature are the pendulous clusters of delicate white bell-shaped flowers, the four petals enclosing pale cowslip coloured anthers, each flower suspended on a long green thread.

The flowers are followed by a distinctive two-winged corky drupe to which the species name refers.
