Fall Foliage of White Ash Trees
White ash trees (Fraxinus americana) can be grown in zones 3-9. ... Summer foliage is dark green on top, but with a very light color on the underside of the leaf—thus the common name. Fall foliage color on many specimens begins as yellow, then morphs to purple (picture).
What is white ash used for?
White ash was used by Native Americans for a variety of medicinal purposes: a decoction of the leaves as a laxative and general tonic for women after childbirth; the seeds as an aphrodisiac, a diuretic, an appetite stimulant, a styptic, an emetic, and as a cure for fevers; and a bark tea for an itching scalp, lice
How fast does a white ash tree grow?
Growing a white ash tree is a long process. If they don't succumb to disease, the trees can live to be 200 years old. They grow at a moderate rate of about 1 to 2 feet per year. At maturity, they tend to reach between 50 and 80 feet in height and 40 to 50 feet in width.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW PLANT: Upon receipt, immediately soak roots in water for 2-3 hours then plant in your ideal location. Make sure to water daily, or as needed, if leaves look wilted and/or until it is established in it's new environment. Sometimes it is best to place in a 6"-8" pot of quality soil and let the root system get adjusted and strengthen, then transplant the hole pot of soil to your permanent location. Plants can get easily stressed when being relocated/shipped.
