Chionanthus virginicus. FRINGE TREE. North America
OLEACEAE (Olive family)

The native fringe tree has leaves and flower panicles up to twice the size of those of the Chinese tree. A location on Quarry Road near Hoover Pavilion was landscaped away: a new tree is, alas, in the backyard at 659 Salvatierra Street.
