LGS Notes: Fringetree is a great medium size flowering tree that will tolerate some shade and will definitely tolerate deer. Its got a beautiful white strappy flower than makes the whole shrub light up when its in bloom. Its great for birds and pollinators and will tolerate clay soil. We use it as a specimen plant when we need something with more height in our garden designs.
