This Fringetree was selected because of its outstanding floral display. This has to be one of the most beautiful native trees in North America. The delicate, creamy white flowers are lightly fragrant. They are easy to grow in full sun or part shade in moist, fertile soil. They are pollinated by bees and are a host plant for several species of moths. This is a male selection so, it will not produce fruit as some find that messy. If you have a female tree this will be a suitable pollinator.
