HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR THE TEXAS ASH
For those looking to bring a touch of native, drought-resistant charm to their landscape, the Texas Ash (Fraxinus texensis) is a splendid choice. This lesser-known but highly desirable ash species is celebrated for its adaptability to the challenging Texas climate and its stunning fall color display. Typically reaching heights of 30 to 45 feet with a spread of 25 to 35 feet, the Texas Ash is an ideal choice for adding both shade and seasonal beauty to any landscape.
The Texas Ash is notable for its lush, deep green leaves which transform into brilliant shades of red, orange, and purple in the fall, creating a breathtaking autumnal display. This tree is particularly well-suited to the hot, dry conditions commonly found in the southwestern United States and thrives in a variety of soil types, provided they are well-drained.
When planting a Texas Ash, consider its preference for full sun to partial shade. It’s a relatively low-maintenance tree, especially once established, and shows remarkable drought tolerance, making it an excellent choice for water-wise landscaping.
Pruning should be minimal for the Texas Ash, focusing primarily on removing any dead or damaged branches to maintain the tree’s health and appearance. It’s best to prune during the dormant winter months to prevent disease.
Adding a Texas Ash to your landscape means more than just planting a tree; it’s about choosing a species that embodies the resilience and beauty of the southwestern landscape. Its brilliant fall colors and adaptability to dry conditions make it a favorite for those looking to add a splash of color and native elegance to their outdoor spaces.
