Daughter Inspires New Pink Styrax
Madison, OH (June 12, 2014) – UpShoot is proud to announce the release of Marleys Pink™ Japanese Snowbell by JLPN Inc. of Salem, Oregon.
JLPN owner John Lewis named this distinctive weeping ornamental tree with lemon verbena and cotton candy scented flowers because it reminded him of the character and charm of his daughter Marley. Marleys Pink is highly versatile and can be used in the landscape as a narrow growing specimen tree. It is also great as a container centerpiece and fits well into smaller urban gardens.
“I’ve always felt this tree selection is something truly unique and special; it grabs your attention and focus, much like my daughters magnetic personality,” said John Lewis. “There was no question that I would name the selection after Marley, because it’s a constant reminder of her youth, charm and innocence, every time I see it.”
