Chinese Fringe Tree

A splendid small tree for petite landscapes, Chinese fringe tree has soft green leaves and magnificent clusters of fragrant, fringelike blooms in spring. It is wider than it is tall and a good choice for casting filtered shade on patios and outdoor living areas. Plant it near dark evergreen trees for a gorgeous bloom show in sharp contrast. Chinese fringe tree grows well in full sun or part shade. This slow-growing tree is best pruned in winter.
