Fringe Trees
The flowers of the Flowering Grancy Greybeard tree are lacy or fringe-like blooming in mid April in South Georgia are being covered with rounded clusters of creamy-white fragrant flowers. Grancy Greybeard flowering trees will thrive in extremely wet river bottoms or in upland areas that are favorable to longleaf pine trees growth, such as this white fragrant flower display growing during April at Fullwood Park at Tifton, Georgia. One of the most popular flowering trees in the South is the Grancy Greybeard, and many of these trees were planted in the recreational areas of Tift Park (Fullwood) in Tifton, Georgia. The Grancy Greybeard (Chionanthus virginicus) is usually planted as an ornamental plant and grown low to the ground, similar to many tall shrubs. In Georgia the Grancy Greybeard tree begins its climax flowering period just after the last cultivars of the Formosa azaleas end their flowering. The tiny white filaments of the Grancy Greybeard tree are frilly and lacy and flower freely for about two weeks with a delicate fragrance. Grancy Greybeard flowers after azaleas begin to fade. The spectacular blooming of the Flowering Fringe tree occurs during a decline in the azalea flower period. This white, feathery flower of the Grancy Greybeard tree completely covers bare, gray branches, in late spring, after most other flowering trees have finished there carnival of flowering.

What should we expect? May 28, 2015
Reviewer: Carolyn Albury from Young harris, GA United States  
Planted our tree and we are wondering what we should expect as summer approaches?  Will the green foliage come out soon? We know the blooming season is over.

Upon Arrival April 7, 2015
Reviewer: Yvonne Laning from Savannah, GA United States  
Upon opening it we were suprised to see it look so bad. We knew it would be pruned back but a lot of the branches we broken and the root ball seemed mighty small for a 15 gallon. We planted it gave it some water and the next day it looked happy. :-)

greybear tree purchase March 20, 2015
Reviewer: Karen Leffler from Savannah, GA United States  
The trees arrived as promised but I was dissapponted in the size. A 3 gallon tree should have been larger and more mature-
especially for the price
