Chionanthus virginicus

Chionanthus virginicus
fringe tree; old man's beard
Chionanthus virginicus

Common name fringe tree; old man's beard
Family oleaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z3-9)
Flowers white (summer)
Size to 10'
Light sun
Cultural notes fertile well-drained soil

White flowers followed by blue-black fruit. Our specimen, purchased as a sapling in Fall of 2003, is still small – it probably isn't in the best location, with only part-day sun and no supplemental water during periods of drought.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
