Japanese snowbell is a showy tree with snowdrop-like flowers. The species is a rather spreading shrub, however, in 1995 Chris van en Wurff from the Netherlands discovered a new variety of strictly fastigiate, very slender form. It was named June Snow and in 2015 won Gold Medal at Groot Groen Plus.

June Snow is a narrowly columnar variety of Japanese snowbell with strictly upright branches which produce a profusion of small, snow white, sweetly scented flowers in June for a longer period than other varieties. They are followed by small, hard, olive-like seedpods in late summer. Deciduous leaves are glossy, ovate to elliptic, mid to dark green, turning yellow in autumn. It can be pruned at the end of winter or just after flowering. It naturally forms a slender tree.

Japanese snowbell loves full sun and is usually pest and disease free. It needs moist, acidic soil, humus-rich soil. A location protected from drying winds is preferred. Its hardiness was so far tested down to -24°C (USDA zone 6) but is expected to go lower, following its parents' hardiness (-29°C).
