Comments: This is a delightful large native deciduous shrub or small tree that produces an abundance of white, bell-shaped flowers in early spring. The egg-shaped fruit have a fuzzy covering and turn brown when mature. It is especially effective in the woodland garden or other naturalistic settings where native understory trees and shrubs are needed.
