History

Harlequin Glorybower is an uncommonly planted small tree in the Carolina's, but the beauty of its flowers and fruit cannot be over looked.  Like the silent harlequin from a pantomime, the fragrant flowers emerge in late summer and give way to dramatic small bright blue fruit subtended by red calyx.

The Latin genus name translates to 'chance tree,' and we are thankful for however gave this true jewel a chance as a street tree for us all to enjoy!
