Ash, Cimmaron –
The patented green ash Cimmaron® is a tall, deciduous tree with a uniform oval crown and dark green leaves that turn deep burgundy and apricot-orange in autumn. This vigorous tree was bred by Jamies Zampini of Sustar Farm in Perry, Ohio.
Green ash is a tall, vigorous deciduous tree with a broad spreading crown. This native of central and eastern North America is adapted to a wide range of soils and topographies, including wet sites. Throughout the growing season it has attractive compound leaves that are olive to dark green. These have opposite arrangement and Cimmaron® turns brilliant hues of burgundy, apricot and orange in autumn. Ashes flower early in the season, but their blooms are inconspicuous. The flowers are followed by clusters of single seeded, papery fruits, each with a single dry, brown wing. These can by messy and may require cleanup.
Green ash grows best in locations with full to part sun. It is widely planted, and makes a great shade tree or street tree for urban settings. Avoid planting ashes where emerald ash borer has become a problem.
