Halesia ( which is named after Stephen Hales ) , also known as (Silverbell or Snowdrop Tree) is a small genus of four or five species of deciduous large shrubs or small trees in the family Styracaceae, native to eastern Asia (southeast China) and eastern North America (southern Ontario, Canada south to Florida and eastern Texas, United States). They grow to 5 to 20 m tall (rarely to 39 m), and have alternate, simple ovate leaves 5-16 cm long and 3 to 8 cm broad. The flowers are pendulous, white or pale pink, produced in open clusters of 2 to 6 together, each flower 1 to 3 cm long. The fruit is an oblong dry drupe 2 to 4 cm long, with two or four narrow longitudinal ribs or wings.
Silverbells are popular ornamental plants in large gardens, grown for their delicate pendulous flowers in late spring.
