Brilliant Fall Colors Meet Easy, Fast Growth

Why Autumn Purple Ash Trees?

Spectacular autumn foliage meets carefree growth, making the Autumn Purple Ash a favorite for easy, fast shade that's unbelievably vibrant. In fact, unlike many other similar varieties, the Autumn Purple Ash is highly adaptable to an array of soil types and is relatively drought resistant, meaning no guesswork in growing for you.

Transitioning from glossy green into red and finally to a brilliant purple in the fall, the Purple Ash makes an eye-catching statement. The Purple Ash holds its fall color longer than almost any other tree, so you'll enjoy the show the entire season!

And it works for you. Its large leaves block sunlight, cutting your cooling bills. When you get an Autumn Purple Ash of your own, you get a regal-looking ornamental tree that stands up to the elements, increases the value of your property, and saves energy.

Thriving up north or down south, the Autumn Purple Ash truly does it all. You can plant this enduring shade tree nearly anywhere...it lasts generation after generation.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Few other nurseries do this because it takes an extra year and more labor...but your Autumn Purple Ash from Fast Growing Trees is poised for long-term success.

Now, you reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery with a colorful, carefree tree.

Order while supplies last. Our Purple Ash is a customer favorite and sells out every year...so, don't wait - get your Autumn Purple Ash today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Purple Ash Trees are moderately drought tolerant and very adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions, even soils that are heavy in clay, providing that the soils are well-draining.

Dig your hole in any area with full sun to partial shade (about 4 to 5 hours of sunlight daily) and make it twice as wide as the diameter and just as deep as the depth of the root ball. Place your tree in the center and gently backfill the soil until it halfway fills the hole. Water the planting site and allow the soil to settle.

2. Watering: Your Autumn will benefit from weekly watering until it becomes more established. The best way to water Autumn Purple Ash roots is by placing a garden hose with slow trickling water at the base of the tree for about 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Autumn Purple Ash with a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-10-10. Apply the fertilizer according to the instructions on the packaging during the summer months.

4. Pruning: Your Autumn Purple Ash will benefit from some occasional pruning, which should be done in the early spring season. Remove any branches that overlap, grow upright or crisscross on the main trunk.

Fast Growing!

Got the tree about a week after I ordered. Came in a long box neatly packaged. Planted the tree that day and two weeks later it has new limbs growing. Awesome.

Autumn Purple Ash Tree

We love our little tree so far! We planted it a few yards east of where the old cedar tree stood, so hopefully it will grow fast and we will live long enough to appreciate its beauty!!
