Chionanthus virginicus

late June–mid July

Chionanthus

Chionanthus virginicus full sun

With ample cream-colored, lacy blossoms and blue, egg-shaped fruit, the American Fringe tree is one of the most beautiful of all North American trees. Native to the eastern United States, it appears quite elegant near water, where its openly branching limbs and glossy green leaves can be reflected in the afternoon light. Growing into small trees, or occasionally multistemmed large shrubs, Chionanthus are easy to cultivate in moist, loamy soil and are well sized for a lawn or small yard. Grows slowly. Large band.

Size: 15' 0" high x 20' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
