Grancy Grey-Beard Fringe Tree is a large native multi-stemmed deciduous shrub or small tree with a broad upright habit.  The spear-like dark green foliage turns gold to yellow in fall.  Terminal clusters of sweetly fragrant pure white fringe flowers bloom heavily in spring attracting butterflies.  Fringe Trees are dioecious and need both genders to produce the fruits.  Female flowers give way to clusters of olive-like fruits that mature to blue-purple in fall.  Grows best in rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.
