Bonita Ash

Fraxinus Bonita

Few southwestern trees can match the beauty and practicality of the Ash. This improved selection of the Arizona Ash is quickly gaining popularity for its lush, broad canopy and flashy yellow/orange display of color in autumn. Don’t let the feminine name fool you; these trees are all male, so they won’t develop any messy seedpods! Once established, the Bonita Ash is drought tolerant, and will require minimal supplemental irrigation to sustain dense, green foliage through the summer months. In addition, despite being a fast grower, the Bonita Ash has very strong wood and easily withstands high winds, as well as full sun and temperatures as low as 0° F.
