Discover the spectacular, versatile Chionanthus retusus, also known as Chinese Fringetree or Tassel Tree. A hardy deciduous tree, native to Korea, China, and Japan, delighting with its stunning foliage, charming exfoliating bark, and distinctive snow-white flowers. Each spring, enjoy a spectacular display as clusters of delicate, fringe-like blooms explode in bright white, with male trees offering an even more lavish floral spectacle. However, it's the female trees that produce attractive berries, providing a valuable food source for birds and other wildlife.
Whether styled as a large multi-stemmed shrub or modest-sized tree, Chinese fringetree leaves a lasting impression, slowly reaching heights between 10 to 20 feet, and even 30 to 40 feet under ideal conditions. Displaying best results in full sun to partial shade, it offers leathery, lustrous foliage under dappled sunlight and heavy bloom in full sunlight. One cautionary note - deer are notably fond of this tree and can cause damage. Discover the magnificent Chinese Fringetree today, a treasured addition to any garden.
