|Average Size at Maturity||Vigorous grower to 60 to 70 ft. tall and almost as wide.|

|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Light Needs||Full sun|
|Soil Needs||Tree & Shrub Food|
|Special Feature||Fall Color, Waterwise|
|Watering Needs||Once established, needs only occasional watering.|
|Companion Plants||Combine this Ash with other reliable drought-resistant trees such as the attractive Chinese Pistachio (Pistacia chinensis), Carob Tree (Ceratonia siliqua), an evergreen with a dense crown, or Brazilian Pepper Tree (Schinus terebinthifolius). To produce a reliable fall show in hot climates, blend with FestivalTM Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua FestivalTM).|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
