A beautiful, small tree from China. It has deeply fissured bark, elliptic, pointed leaves with often serrated margins. In early Summer, our Chionanthus retusus produces masses of fluffy, pure white, heavily scented flowers that are followed by metal blue, elliptic fruits on female plants (which the birds love). Most plants of this species are dioecious, its latin name means "sunflower". Deciduous and hardy in Britain and most of Europe.
