Fringe tree grows best in a sunny spot sheltered from wind. The tree prefers moist soil and grows slowly in clay or acid soil. The plant grows 20 to 30 feet tall and spreads to 25 feet. Fringe tree grows slowly and may be hard to transplant. The tree tolerates city conditions but does not tolerate much pruning.

The white flowers are in hanging clusters and are present in May and June. Female plants develop blue fruits after the blooms fall.
