This wonderful, small native tree blooms in late April/May with clouds of lacy, fringe-like white blooms, giving an ethereal appearance. Small blue fruits are produced in late summer and are consumed by numerous birds and wildlife. The large oval leaves have a yellow autumn color. Fringetree is an excellent specimen tree for the home landscape. It is hardy, and though it tolerates full sun, prefers some protection from the hot afternoon sun. Typically grows 12-20' tall. Moist to dry soil.
