Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This North American native is unrivaled in beauty for its pendulous and diaphanous clusters of fragrant white blossoms, which appear in May or June. The individual blossoms are made up of four petals that dangle from threadlike stems in great silken clusters. The leaves are late to emerge in the spring, and this species flowers before leafing out. Female specimens produce blue-black fruits in autumn.

(1 user review)
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Small, round fruits ripen to a deep blue-purple in late summer.
