Carolina silverbell is an understory tree native to southeast U.S. which can grow up to 35 feet but often grows as a shrub. The clusters of white, bell-shaped flowers appear in April and produce four-winged nut-like fruits in fall, which can persist through winter. The leaves are dark yellow-green 2-5 inches long with fine teeth on margins. They turn yellow in fall and drop early.
