Raywood Ash, botanical name Fraxinus oxycarpa 'Raywood,' is a Mediterranean native that can grow to be a large tree with a round-headed form, so it is capable of providing the right amount of summer shade! It's a favorite in landscapes throughout the Southwest both for its shade coverage as well as the beautiful fall color it brings to yards! In the fall, the attractive dark green leaves turn to an alluring red wine color. Once the leaves fall, it can let the warmth of the sun in, and you'll only need to do a one-time easy cleanup! The foliage comes back in the spring, just in time to cool off your home and keep you comfortable while you're enjoying your yard!
These are fast-growing deciduous trees, and we also like to plant them as a street tree that brings plenty of curb appeal! For widespread shade, plant them in a grove! They thrive in a location that gets plenty of full sun exposure and once established; they are drought resistant with little to moderate watering requirements.
We are the growers of Raywood Ash so that we can assure their quality is the best you'll find anywhere! You want them big? We have some available right now, ready to bring the look of an instant landscape to your yard! These are excellent companions to other drought-resistant trees such as Chinese Pistache and Brazilian Pepper trees, which we grow and sell at our nurseries throughout the Southwest!
We do the work! That's right! We offer free planting on all box sized trees so that it cannot get any easier to come home to a beautiful new landscape!
My home is finally comfortableWe had Moon Valley plant 4 of these trees around our home because it gets so hot in the summer. These made such a huge difference and they grew really fast too! I love the maroon fall color, all my freinds ask what kind of trees we have becuase they are so lush and green during the summer and in the fall the leaves are so pretty! If you're looking for shade trees or really just any trees, go visit the nice people at Moon Valley! They have big trees too! I couldn't believe how big some of their trees are, you could have a whole park planted right away. Anyway... awesome people, really great trees!
If you want to feel like we have seasons in AZ, this is your tree!My wife and I grew up in the midwest and moved to Arizona several years ago. We always wished we felt like we had seasons, so when we moved into our forever home here, we decided to see if we could find some trees that we could grow that would have fall color. I am so happy we decided to visit Moon Valley Nurseries! The people there were all so nice and compeltely understood what we wanted. They showed us these Raywood ash trees and told us about their red fall leaves. They weren't kidding. The red color that these trees get in the fall is amazing! We had two planted in our front yard and 3 more in the backyard. The planting crews were so professional and kind. Infact everyone we worked with was so helpful and freindly, it must be a family-owned buisiness. Our ash trees create so much shade that are house stays much cooler in the summer and the fall color actually gives us seasons. We couldn't be happier!
