New! As the name suggests, this large shade tree’s foliage turns a beautiful reddish-purple to mahogany-purple in autumn. Native to the eastern US forests with their acidic soils, Autumn Purple® has proven to be quite tolerant to our alkaline soils. Best used where there are adequate moist conditions—aka irrigated lawns and beds. That said, after establishment, it does have some drought resistance. Autumn Purple is a male tree, hence no flowers or seeds. Early in life this tree will be conical in shape maturing to a more rounded canopy later on. For what it’s worth, ash is prized for their hard wood, all Louisville Slugger® baseball bats are made with this species.
