The Autumn Purple Ash turns from a glossy green into red and finally to a brilliant purple in the fall.
The Purple Ash holds its fall color longer than almost any other tree – enjoy the show the entire season!
Large leaves block sunlight, cutting your cooling bills. A regal looking ornamental tree that makes a great focal point for your lawn.
Perfect for lining streets, especially in areas that receive a lot of snow. Salt debris will not harm this beauty.
Autumn Purple Ash trees thrive best in moist areas, but are tolerant of many climates. These deciduous trees usually grow up to 3-5 ft. a year and into a pyramidal shape when young, then flourish into a pleasing oval shape at maturity.
Thrives in northern climates as well as warmer ones, preferring Growing Zones 3-9.
When you order from Fast Growing Trees, you get a higher quality, more attractive tree. Each Autumn Purple Ash tree goes through an extensive grafting process that guarantees incredible fall color. Few other nurseries do this, because it takes an extra year and more labor.
Order while supplies last. Our Purple Ash is a customer favorite and sells out every year!
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Autumn Purple Ash.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Purple Ash gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Autumn Purple Ash again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
