Stunning Native Tree Grows From Canada to Deep South

Many times a gorgeous native plant gets overlooked for a non-native that gets more press. White Fringe Tree (Chionanthus virginicus, var. maritimus) is one of those plants. Native to America these beauties are perfect for spots where you might want to plant a Japanese maple (or where your current Japanese maple is suffering).

The Fringe Tree grows to 20 feet high in full sun or part shade. It can be trained as single trunked or multi-stemmed, too. This is often the last tree to leaf out in the spring, but when it does it simultaneously covers itself in white spring blooms, and these abundant blooms are impressive! They give the whole tree an appearance of being laced with elaborate white fringe, which is where it gets its name. 

The 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.

The White Fringe Tree is a deciduous tree, so it drops its leaves in late autumn, but not until they’ve turned a golden-yellow.

This is a great non-fussy tree. Plant it in small groups of three or four along a woodland border, a driveway or by a pond. They make great seasonal hedges and yard dividers and excel as specimen trees in your borders. Order your today!
