Halesia carolina var. carolina

I’m going to start posting a photo from my garden each day.

Today is Halesia carolina var. carolina.

I bought it from a local nursery when the plant wasn’t in bloom about 25 years ago — they had no idea what it was and sold it for a song.

I knew what genus it was, but was thrilled to key it out to H. carolina once it bloomed. It’s an endangered species here in Illinois.
