Chionanthus retusus var. serrulatus

Common Name: Chinese Fringetree

Even among experts, few seem to appreciate the distinctive character of this variety. We observe smaller, less glossy leaves that have serrate edges. Much flakier bark. Overall, the growth habit is more shrubby, almost bonsai-like for 10 yr. old 6 ft. seedlings. Flower character is essentially the same, so expect an abundant show of starry-white flowers at the new branch tips, followed by attractive blue olive-like fruit.
