Chionanthus virginicus - fringe tree, old man's beard are just a few of the names this beautiful native is known by. It is a slow-growing, small (12-18'), deciduous tree that does well in sun, part or light shade. Flowers better in full sun but leaves are prettier when grown in shade. Soil that is moist and rich in organic matter will allow it to grow faster and taller. It has stunning fluffy white flowers in the spring which are followed by deep purple/blue drupes that are favored by birds. Host plant for the Rustic sphinx.
