Looking After Your Chionanthus Retusus

Generally pest and disease free, an easy to grow deciduous, ornamental garden tree in many if not all locations, a low maintenance plant which will benefit from a sunny or partially shaded position, in a fertile, moist, but well drained soil, taking care not to allow to dry out completely, and suited to all types of garden from cottage planting schemes to large town or court-yard gardens. Very little pruning is required, although any removal of damaged or unwanted branches should be done late Winter/early Spring during the dormant season.
