The Q&A Archives: Japanese Snowbell Tree

Question: Hi
I have 4 feet wide planters on either side of my aggregate driveway. I want to alternate Japnaese Snowbell trees with boxwoods as you drive in. Would this work?

Answer: Styrax japonicus, the Japanese Snowbell, is well adapted to your growing region and should make an attractive focal point along your driveway. The roots of this plant are non-aggressive (no worry about invading the driveway), and the springtime flowers are very attractive and mildly fragrant. I think it's a good choice!
