Planning to install this tree yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for do it yourself installations. These small sizes do not require any offloading equipment!
Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Chinese Fringe Tree is often grown as a large multi-stemmed deciduous shrub or small tree with attractive exfoliating grey bark.  The leathery bright green foliage turns yellow in fall.  Terminal clusters of mildly fragrant pure white fringe-like flowers bloom heavily in spring and summer.  Female flowers give way to clusters of olive-like fruits that mature to blue-black in fall.  Grows best in rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Intolerant of drought.
