The Grancy Graybeard Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus), also known as the Old Man's Beard or White Fringetree, is a small, deciduous tree native to the southeastern United States. It is admired for its showy, fragrant flowers, attractive foliage, and striking fall color.
The Grancy Graybeard Fringetree typically grows to a height of 12-20 feet, with a similar spread. It has a multi-stemmed, rounded form and is often grown as a large shrub or small tree. The plant is adaptable to various soil types and moisture levels but prefers well-draining, moist, acidic soil. It is cold hardy in USDA zones 3-9 and can tolerate full sun to partial shade.
This native tree is known for its low-maintenance requirements and resistance to pests and diseases, making it a popular choice for homeowners and landscapers alike.
One of the most striking features of the Grancy Graybeard Fringetree is its showy, fragrant flowers. The tree blooms in late spring to early summer, with drooping clusters of creamy white, fringe-like petals that create a cloud-like effect. The flowers are not only visually appealing but also emit a delightful, sweet fragrance that attracts pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
The Grancy Graybeard Fringetree boasts attractive, dark green, lance-shaped leaves that provide a lush backdrop for the tree's fragrant flowers. In the fall, the foliage transforms to shades of yellow, adding seasonal interest to the landscape.
Following the flowering period, the Grancy Graybeard Fringetree produces small, bluish-black, olive-like fruit that is attractive to birds and other wildlife. The fruit ripens in late summer to early fall and can persist on the tree for several weeks, providing additional visual interest.
