Halasia, or Silverbell, is a small genus of five species (H. carolina, H. diptera, H. macgregorii, H. tetraptera, and H. monticola) of large, deciduous shrubs or small trees with grey bark, and simple, ovate, green leaves, that turn yellow in autumn and fall off early. Attractive, hanging, bell-shaped, white to pale pink flowers grow in clusters and bloom in spring. Flowers are followed by four-winged (or two-winged), nut-like fruits in autumn and often remain on branches long into winter. Attractive to bees and squirrels. Halasia grows best in average, organically rich, slightly acidic, lime-free, moist but well-drained soils. It prefers partial shade, but tolerates full sun. Doesn’t have any serious pest or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, no routine pruning necessary. Halasia is a wonderful shrub or small tree perfect as an understory plant, for shrub borders, stream banks, or woodland gardens. Great as a specimen plant for the lawn.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
