The Bonita Ash, is an Ash tree cultivar that achieves a large, full canopy quickly, so it’s an ideal shade tree that can help keep you cool when the temperatures soar! Fraxinus velutina ‘Bonita ’ is native to the southwestern U.S. and Mexico, so it loves to grow in our local climate. It’s an excellent deciduous shade tree perfect for lawns, and, with proper placement, can block the sweltering summer sun from the home while letting in the warmth of the sun during the wintertime.

As the name implies, it’s a pretty tree, muy bonita, with an attractive medium-gray trunk and dense green-colored foliage that turns to a brilliant yellow color in the fall.
