Chionanthus






CHIONANTHUS RETUSA.--China, 1852. This is not a very hardy species,

and, being less ornamental than the American form, is not to be

recommended for general planting.



C. VIRGINICA.--Fringe Tree. North America, 1736. A very ornamental,

small-growing tree, with large deciduous leaves and pendent clusters of

pure white flowers with long fringe-like petals, and from which the

popular name has arisen. It is a charming tree, or rather shrub, in

this country, for one rarely sees it more than 10 feet high, and one

that, to do it justice, must have a cool and rather damp soil and a

somewhat shady situation.
