Compliments of the Mediterranean region, Fraxinus angustifolia oxycarpa ‘Raywood’ is an extremely popular medium-sized deciduous tree known for its spectacular fall color. In Western Garden zones 2b-9 and 12-24, it will achieve 25 – 45 feet in height with an equal spread with moderate water and full sun. Its finely textured foliage is lovely and lacy, borne on slender branches; it sports medium green until the fall when the leaves turn a brilliant purple to red hue. An ambitious growth rate and naturally-rounded dense head makes it a good choice for those seeking more immediate gratification and less maintenance. Cold hardy and suited to desert climates, it is also deer resistant. A terrific specimen tree, it is even more dramatic massed for a grove effect.
