Chionanthus Virginica, or Fringe Tree. - This is a fine deciduous shrub, or small tree, sometimes growing twenty feet or more high, but flowering when six or eight feet high. It has large leaves, six or eight inches long, and from two to three inches wide; the flowers white, in numerous long bunches, and have a fringe-like appearance. It is a native of North America, and found growing upon the mountains at the South, and is very hardy. A light loam suits it well, but propagation is difficult. It succeeds when budded or grafted on the ash.
