The Texas Ash tree is the perfect choice for a shade tree in hot and dry areas. If you live in south-central states, where summers are long, hot and dry, then you need shade in your garden. This tree will give you plenty of it, and thrive without needing watering, once it is established. It will reach a height of 30 to 50 feet, with a spread of 30 to 40 feet, throwing a large circle of shade for you to enjoy when outdoors in summer. This tree can tolerate long periods of drought and grow in poor soils. When fall arrives you will enjoy spectacular fall colors, much better than other species of ash trees, with the leaves turning beautiful pastel shades of yellow, orange, red, gold and purple, and then turning brilliant bright red. The tree is hardy across most of the country, and it is a superior choice for an ash tree, wherever you live – not just in dry places.

  • Perfect shade tree for hot and dry areas
  • Beautiful fall colors of orange, purple and red
  • Upright, rounded crown throws plenty of shade
  • Very drought and heat tolerant
  • Grows well even in poor, dry and rocky soil

The Texas Ash tree should be planted in full sun, in a well-drained soil. It will grow in all kinds of soil, from regular garden soils to dry, sandy and rocky ground. It will grow in shallow soil too, as well as in both acid and alkaline soils. This tree is very tough, but it also adapts and grows well in ordinary conditions. It rarely has any significant pests or diseases, and makes a reliable, very low-maintenance tree, for shade on a lawn or for planting in groups on open, bare ground.
