Fragrant Trees & Shrubs
CHINESE FRINGETREE Chionanthus retusus         $2.50
Introduced to this country over a century ago, this delightful shrub or small tree is still too little known. It is of finer texture and a smaller plant than the native species, growing after quite some time to 16 feet or so. Like C. virginicus, the airy pure white flowers are borne in great profusion and have a sweet scent in early summer. Though the sexes are usually separate, this seed comes from a single isolated plant. Zone 5.
