Special Attributes

The Grancy Greybeard, also known as the "White Fringe Tree," is an eye-catching North American native and a wonderful, hardy and long-lived addition to any landscape. When in flower, this is one of the most beautiful trees you'll ever set your eyes upon. In late spring, it's showy fringe-like blooms cascade downward like the white beard of a wise old man, inspiring the name Grancy Greybeard. The flowers also add a lovely, potent, sweet perfume fragrance to the air about when the dogwoods are beginning to fade. It is attractive to a variety of beneficial insects while in bloom, and to birds and small mammals when fruiting. It is a slow to moderate grower reaching maybe 20 feet in height with an equal width over the years.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 12 to 15 feet tall and wide, the Grancy Greybeard tree is ideal for use as a specimen in landscape borders or to frame the corners or against open walls in home foundation plantings. In larger landscape spaces it can be planted in groupings. It is a fine addition to wildlife gardens, North American native plant garden, cottage gardens and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  20 feet for space between trees
 



Cultural Preferences

Grancy Greybeard is adaptable to a variety of light and soil conditions, from full sun to filtered shade, doing very well under large trees. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil, however will tolerate somewhat dry soils and drought when established. A must-have native in every garden where it will grow!
