Halesia carolina, Linn. (H. tetraptera, Ellis. Mohrodendron carolinum, Brit.). Fig. 1782. Large shrub or small tree, usually not higher than 40 ft., with spreading branches and often irregular in habit: lvs. ovate or elliptic to ovate-oblong, acute or acuminate, cuneate or rounded at the base, finely serrate, glabrous above, stellate-pubescent below, 2-4 in. long: fls. in clusters of 2—4; corolla 4-lobed, ½ - ¾ . long; stamens 10-16; ovary 4-celled: fr. 4-winged, 1-1 ½ in. long. April, May. W. Va. to Fla., west to 111. and E. Texas. Var. dialypetala, Schneid. Corolla divided nearly to the base. Var. monticola, Rehd. Pyramidal tree to 90 ft.: lvs. larger, generally oblong-obovate, glabrescent or nearly glabrous below, more sharply serrate: pedicels and calyx glabrous; corolla large: fr. 1 ½ - 2, in. long, obcordate at the apex, wings broad. N. C. to Ala., in the mountains. Apparently hardier than the type. Var. meehanii, Perkins (H. meehanii, Meehan). Fig. 1783. Bushy upright shrub or small tree: lvs. thicker, smaller, more rugose, darker green, more distinctly serrate, pubescent below: fls. smaller, cup-shaped, shorter pedicelled. A very peculiar form of garden origin; very unlike the species and less ornamental; suggests a hybrid of some kind.
