White Fringe Tree

Fragrant, Ornamental Tree

Sometimes called Grancy Graybeard or Old Man’s Beard, a reference to the airy, drooping clusters of fringy vanilla flowers that appear each spring.

This is a delightful maintenance-free shrub or small tree with an elegant, spreading-but-rounded habit. The spectacular, pleasantly-fragrant flowers give over to clusters of olive-like fruits which ripen to a dark navy blue in late summer, an event eagerly anticipated by local birds and wildlife.

It’s a deciduous tree/shrub; the broad, long spear-shaped leaves turn yellow in autumn. White Fringetrees are easily grown in average, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade; they are, however, not at all happy with city air pollution and prolonged dry spells.

Plant Fringe trees in small sprays of three or four along woodland borders, or near streams or ponds; they also work well as a hedge, divider or as specimens.

Flower colors Review by White flowers
I have a white fringe tree and a tree lilac. I think I prefer the white fringe tree because of the fruit for the birds.
Superb Tree Review by Tree Lover
I have the white fringe tree as a hedge row. More people should consider this tree when planting.
Fringe Tree grower Review by Sue
I came across a selection of Fringe Trees at a greenhouse in Green Bay, WI. One was loaded with nearly ripe fruit. I asked a lot of questions aobut the trees because they were new to me. I planted them in a semi-shady spot in our tough clay soil. The following summer, there were no blooms and consequently, no fruit. In their second summer, I counted 6 fruits on one of the trees, so I'm hoping for many more this summer. They are slow to grow, and I put fencing around them over winter to protect them from being snacked on by rabbits. This spring, they're looking very well.
