Product Features

Fraxinus ornus, commonly called flowering ash, produces a spectacular display of fragrant creamy white flowers in May. It is native to southern Europe and western Asia. This is a rounded, deciduous tree that grows to 40-50' tall with a relatively short trunk featuring smooth, gray bark. Perfect, fragrant, creamy white flowers appear in axillary and terminal panicles (to 5" long) in May. Flowers give way to somewhat unattractive clusters of winged seeds (to 2" long) that ripen in fall and may persist on the tree throughout winter. Odd-pinnate compound leaves (5-8" long) have 5-9 leaflets. Leaflets (2-3" long) are ovate to oblong, toothed and dark green above. Fall color is somewhat undistinguished, ranging from yellow-burgundy to red-purple. Also commonly called manna ash. This tree is commercially grown in Sicily for manna which is a sweet, gummy sap taken from slits made in the bark.
