If you’re looking for an excellent shade tree with lots of beauty, the Bonita Ash tree is it! Fraxinus velutina ‘Bonita’ (botanical name) is a deciduous shade tree that can block the sunlight in the summer, and let in the warmth of the sun during the winter. It puts on a long-lasting show in the fall when its velvety gray-green leaves turn to a bright yellow color. Plus, these trees are male, so there are no messy seedpods to deal with! Homeowners in high wind areas will be glad to know that the Bonita Ash has solid limbs that can withstand windy conditions.
Bonita Ash trees are low-maintenance trees that require little to moderate watering once established. These are fast-growing trees native to the Southwest. They do best when exposed to full sun exposure. We like to plant them as a focal point in large, open environments. They work perfectly with any landscape arrangement! Homeowners and landscapers alike agree that this is a simple tree to grow. It will require minimal pruning and maintenance!
For places that benefit from large shade trees such as Phoenix and Las Vegas, it is hard to beat a Bonita Ash tree. This is one park-style tree that you are going to want in your landscape, especially when the blistering sun makes spending time outdoors unbearable! Plus, proper planting around a home can help reduce the temperatures inside a house.
