Fringe tree

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Flower Power -

Just as the fresh, bright green leaves ap­pear, the pretty fringe trees burst into masses of droop­ing, pure white, long petalled flow­ers. There’s an east-asian species and one from the south-east US, both sim­i­lar in ap­pear­ance and need­ing fer­tile soil and reg­u­lar rain or wa­ter. The Amer­i­can species, Chio­nan­thus vir­gini­cus, grows a lit­tle larger, has lightly fra­grant flow­ers and takes lower win­ter tem­per­a­tures.
