Carolina Silverbells 10 seeds n£]]
A beautiful spring flowering tree from the USA with clusters of white flowers emerging from the previous years wood to create a stunning display. Produces winged seeds and some striping on the young bark. Prefers acid, well drained soil conditions and partial shade similar to cornus species. Maximum height about 20ft and is often classed as a shrub rather than a tree. Seed needs stratification.
The fleshy thickened fruit stalks, when dried, have the sweet flavour and texture of raisins and can be used in the same way. They have a pear-like flavour when ripe, which is when they fall to the ground. They may be small in size but are usually in copious amounts. The other beauty of these fruits is that you don't need to dry them.The brown pod which is actually the fruit is not used.
