Space-Challenged Gardens Love the Flowering Chinese Fringe
Why Chinese Fringe Trees?
Manageable growth, upright branches, and a symmetrical, full silhouette make the Chinese Fringe Tree a must-have for your garden. Plus, with bright white blooms in the spring that emit a heavenly fragrance, the Chinese Fringe is known for its light, elegant look.
And it’s a low-maintenance beauty that even those with small spaces can enjoy. With its compact size, it’s an ornamental that fits in almost any location. In large gardens, plant it with your larger evergreen trees…in tighter spaces, plant the Chinese Fringe as your focal point. Plus, it’s hassle-free because it’s resistant to air pollution. That means it thrives from city streets to backyards and beyond.
But the best benefit of our Chinese Fringe Tree is its strong beginning. Because we’ve planted, grown and monitored your Chinese Fringe with the utmost care, you get better results in your own landscape. Our Chinese Fringe Trees are shipped well, roots intact, so they come to you in peak form. Each Chinese Fringe is grown under optimal conditions, months in advance, for the healthiest outcome.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Because your Chinese Fringe Tree needs an area with full to partial sun, select a planting location that receives about 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day (and ensure the soil is well-drained). Dig a hole twice as wide and deep as your tree’s root ball, place it in the hole, and back fill with remaining soil and any compost you’d like to incorporate. Finally, tamp around the base of the tree to remove air pockets and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Establish a regular watering schedule during the first season after planting. We recommend watering your tree about once weekly, or when your tree’s surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
However, your weekly watering schedule may be decreased after the tree is established.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Chinese Fringe Tree with a balanced fertilizer in the spring, before new growth emerges.
4. Pruning: Remove any dead, diseased or damaged branches, as well as any branches that grow towards the center of the tree or cross other branches, during winter.
