Fraxinus excelsior

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Fraxinus excelsior

The purplish flowers appear before the leaves. The tree is wind-pollinated in April and May. The winged seeds or 'ash keys' are borne in clusters in summer and autumn. The common ash and the wild privet are the only two representatives in England of the olive family Oleaceae.
