The Grancy Greybeard, as it is commonly known in the south, is also called the Fringe tree.

During the two week blooming period, the Grancy Greybeard flowers emit a sweet lilac scent, especially in the evening.

4 of 5 Receipt of Grancy Greybeard Trees October 20, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from REPUBLIC, MO United States  
Received 2 trees in box. Leaves were crisp and falling off but limbs were pliable. Planted as directed and I continue to water. Hoping they are just going dormant, not dying. I understand I have plant insurance for a year so the Spring will tell. Thanks.
