Beautiful white flowers cover this bush with a delicious fragrance. We’ve had it in our yard for years and I moved it last year. I was worried that the move might harm it but fortunately it didn’t. I would love to know what it is. It loves the sun and tolerates the drought very nicely.

    I’m not 100% sure, but I think this is what my mother called a Grancy Gray Beard. The date the photo was taken also corresponds to it’s blooing time.

    Grancy Graybeard (Chionanthus virginicus) is also known as American Fringe Tree. It is native in the Southeast and with enough sun can grow into a small tree.

    What about deutzia? Doesn’t look like fringe tree to me.
