Ruined tower near mountain ash (5,4)


I believe the answer is:

rowan tree

'mountain ash' is the definition.
(rowan tree is a kind of mountain ash)

'ruined tower near' is the wordplay.
'ruined' indicates anagramming the letters.
'towernear' is an anagram of 'ROWAN-TREE'.

(Other definitions for rowan tree that I've seen before include "Another name for the mountain ash" , "It's also called the mountain ash" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
