Fraxinus angustifolia ‘Raywood’ Fraxinus

Fraxinus

Description: Fraxinus 'Raywood', also known as Fraxinum 'Flame', is a medium sized, fast growing, deciduous tree. It has a narrow, upright crown when young and broadens into a full, rounded canopy as it matures. Throughout the summer, the narrow, serrated leaves are dark green and glossy, turning an alluring red wine colour in autumn.

History: Originated in the Raywood Gardens at Bridgewater near Adelaide, Australia. ‘Raywood’ was put into commerce in the UK by Messrs Notcutt of Woodbridge, Suffolk, who received bud-wood around 1925. Received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Fraxinus Growing Tips: The Ash are mostly fast growing and tolerant of most soils and sites. They are good on chalk, are naturally shallow rooted, and will withstand shade while young. Ideal for coppice pruning to enhance their variety of striking foliage and are one of the most useful for burning logs.
