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!
