English term or phrase: winged keys
Twig tips support spiked clusters of purple flowers, the male and female blossom separated onto different trees or branches. Their winged keys float down, to be dispersed by birds and mammals. Caterpillars of coronet, brick, centre-barred sallow and privet-hawk moths grow plump on ash leaves with attendant butterflies such as the rare high brown fritillary.Turn social sharing on.
