Interesting Notes about Japanese Snowbell:
This is a nice little shade tree that is ideal for the small landscape. It prefers to be constantly moist, but not wet, and needs the soil to be well-drained. Because the roots are not too aggressive it is a good tree to plant hosta or other ground cover beneath it.
