American Snowbell

Upright, spreading, shrub with slender branches and opposite leaves. Covered in fragrant white, bell-shaped flowers with five reflexed petals in spring. The flowers are followed by a small dry fruit that browns in fall as it ripens. The bark is gray to reddish-brown which lends a nice contrast to the foliage and flowers.  Naturally occurring in moist, acidic soil, this plant will do well on stream banks and in riparian areas.
