Fraxinus chinensis subsp. rhynchophylla

Fraxinus rhynchophylla


This ash grows in moist rich soils on hillsides and in river valleys over a wide range which extends from western China to Korea and the Russian Far East. The provenances grown in Finland are from the north-east parts of this range and there are two distinct forms: var. rhynchophylla has leaflets which are oval and come to a point, like most ashes; and var. densata, whose leaflets are large and broad, almost round, with a sandpapery rough surface.
