The Story

The first instance of a Japanese Snowbell being described by a Westerner was by Philipp Franz von Siebold in 1836.  Siebold was a German physician and botanist who spent much time in Japan.  He fell in love with a Japanese woman there, and their daughter became a physician herself—Japan’s first female doctor!  But we digress… Siebold didn’t actually collect any Snowbell seeds; that task was up to Englishman Richard Oldham to do in 1862.  This nifty pink-flowering selection originated at a Japanese nursery in the city of Angyo in 1976.

The Details

A special tree for a special person - YOU! Pink Chimes is an ormental tree that stays somewhat small and can fit into smaller, tighter spaces. The month of May brings about rows of fragrant, tiny pink bell-shaped flowers - just a beautiful specimen tree. Be sure to put a bench beneath it to enjoy the lovely flowers!

How to Grow

Snowbell likes full sun but also tolerates light shade. Snowbell does best in organic, moist, well-drained soils and prefer to be in an area protected from wind. They are also relatively free of insect problems. Snowbells will respond well to a once a year application of low rate tree fertilizer in the fall. Pruning requirements are practically non-existent. If your Japanese Snowbells get a little out of hand, you can keep them under control by shearing them after flowering. Yes, I said shearing. Literally taking hedge shearers and cutting it back. Believe me, your Snowbell will respond well to this type of pruning.
