Focus on Plants - Autumn Purple Ash

Autumn Purple Ash

Fall is around the corner and trees will be bringing on their fall color show to highlight the many colors in nature. One of my favorite trees for fall color is the Autumn Purple Ash. When the tree is young the fall color will be more of a solid purple, but as the tree get larger, the inside leaves will turn yellow in the fall while the outside leaves will turn a combination or wine red, yellow and purple. It is truly stunning effect that you will notice in early fall and will be the envy of your neighborhood.

The autumn purple Ash is a fast growing shade tree that has a mature canopy size of approximately 50’ high x 30’ wide. The green leaves will provide nice shade in the summer heat to cool your yard. If you have the room and you are looking for a fairly fast growing (18”-3’ per year) shade tree
