The Green ash is primarily dioecious (separate male and female trees). Clusters of small, apetalous purplish male and female flowers appear on separate trees in April-May after the foliage emerges.
Fertilized female flowers give way to drooping clusters of winged samaras (to 2 inches long) that ripen in fall and may persist on the tree throughout winter. Samaras have wings extending less than half body length. Samaras in large numbers, 1 to 2 inches long and narrow, color changes from green to tan as they mature. Fruit displays from August to October., Green
