Looking for a stunning flowering tree that will thrive nearly anywhere? Look no further than Chionanthus virginicus, also known as White Fringetree. This tree is native to the southeastern United States but is hardy enough to grow in many climates. In May, the tree bursts into masses of delicate, fragrant white flowers that bees can't resist. In the fall, the leaves turn yellow and brown, adding to the tree's beauty. The fruit is also edible, and can be used as a pickle like olives. This small tree grows to be 12 to 20 feet tall, making it perfect for any landscape. Add a touch of elegance to your yard with Chionanthus virginicus.
