Fringe Tree

Gorgeous summertime bloomer

As the name suggests, 4- to 8-in. long panicles of delicately scented, creamy white clusters cover this 12- to 20-ft. tree like thick, beautiful fringe in early to midsummer. Upright, spreading form provides a shady retreat under arching branches. Grape-like clusters of blue-black fruit mature in fall. Does well in full sun to part shade. Zones 3-9. 2-3 ft
