Margie Jenkins American Snowbell. Our native Styrax is one of my favorite native plants. It will never be a big-box plant, but that's fine with me. The small white recurved petalled flowers seem to be touched by a fairy wand. It flowers for us in April here in zone 8, and it will only reach 8-10' in the wild, maybe a little larger. But this selection was found by legendary plants-lady, Margie Jenkins of Amite, LA. The stems are slightly zigzagged, but its best attribute is its leaves with their somewhat silvery undersides and also a little broader than the norm. We will even have rooted cuttings flowering at only a few inches in height. I promise that this plant will endear itself to you as one of your favorite native plants. It seems happiest when planted in filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade.
