Yes, I know this is not bloom in the greenhouse, but there have been several posts on the Robin about Fringetree's that I thought I would show ours. 'Chionanthus retusus' Chinese Fringetree - This was our tree last year in May. You can see that ours is a multi stemmed tree. One thing interesting is that the tree leafs out before it blooms, so you have this sea of white on a bed of green. It is late to drop it's leaves in the fall, and Jean says they are the hardest leaves to deal with that she has come across. However, it is beautiful.
Okay, now to today's bloom. We will show three 9-month seedlings that bloomed today. The first is Seedling No. 1007 (Bluegrass Memories X Kaskell's BEST EDGE Seedling.
