Looking for a native flowering tree that will wow you?? Spring Fleecing Fringetree is the perfect choice for your garden. The tree has beautiful, upright panicles of unique, fringed, white flowers. Flowers give way to navy blue berries in the fall, and the green leaves turn a lovely yellow shade. Along with the berries and foliage color, Spring Fleecing Fringetree has a bark texture that peels back in the fall, adding interest to your winter garden. Spring Fleecing Fringetree or Chionanthus virginicus, combining the Greek word for snow (chion) and flower (anthos), is a show stopping choice for your garden. 

Native to the US, Spring Fleecing Fringetree is pest and disease resistant. Once established, the tree will demonstrate drought tolerance. The tree has a rounded form and is slow growing and slow to bloom. The flowers are worth the wait with their unique appearance and pleasant fragrance in spring and summer. Use Spring Fleecing Fringetree as a specimen plant, as a hedge or screen, as an accent, and in mass plantings. Spring Fleecing Fringetree is hardy from zone 4a - 9b. 

Spring Fleecing Fringetree Care

Spring Fleecing Fringetree grows well in full sun to part shade. The tree is adaptable and tolerates dry to very wet conditions. Water when the top layer of soil is dry. Spring Fleecing Fringetree tolerates all soil pH levels and grows best in rich, well-drained soil. This tree is a good choice for inner city environments since it adapts to harsh conditions. Fertilizing will boost the size and amount of flowers. Feed with a balanced fertilizer in the spring. 

Spring Fleecing Fringetree requires minimal pruning. The tree blooms on old wood so any pruning should be done after flowering. Prune in the winter to remove any dead or damaged branches.  

Spring Fleecing Fringetree Spacing

Spring Fleecing Fringetree will reach 12 - 18 feet in height with a spread of 8 - 10 feet. Space trees approximately 10 feet apart.
