The iconic South Australian native has the most remarkable claret colour that is impossible not to compare to wine. Indeed, the leaves seemingly take in a tour of merlot, bordeaux and suchlike, before settling on the distinctive claret. This is no bad thing and the Autumn show is as warming as a fine glass of your favourite vintage. During the summer months, those slender leaves are green and plentiful, making for a full canopy in a mature version. Deciduous, the Claret Ash will grow to 10 x 5m and is well suited in avenue, group and feature plantings.
Suitable for: Avenues, group or feature plantings.
Features: Claret-red autumn colour.
Botanical Name: FRAXINUS oxycarpa Raywoodii
