Fraxinus velutina, commonly known as Fan Tex Ash, is a fast-growing deciduous tree that is highly valued for its attractive foliage, shade-providing canopy, and drought tolerance. This tree is a member of the Oleaceae family and is native to the southwestern United States and Mexico.

The Fan Tex Ash can grow up to 30-40 feet tall and 20-30 feet wide, forming a dense, oval to rounded crown with a single or multiple trunks. The tree's bark is gray to brown, becoming rough and fissured with age. In the spring, the tree produces small, inconspicuous flowers that give way to clusters of small, winged seeds in the fall.

The tree's foliage is its main attraction, with large, glossy, dark green leaves that turn a vibrant yellow in the fall before dropping. The leaves are arranged in a pinnate pattern and are composed of 5-9 leaflets, each with a serrated edge.

This tree is highly adaptable and can be grown in a variety of conditions, from full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-draining soil and moderate watering, but can tolerate periods of drought once established. The Fan Tex Ash is hardy in USDA zones 6-9, making it a great choice for gardens and landscapes in mild to warm climates.

Overall, Fraxinus velutina is a beautiful and low-maintenance tree that adds a burst of color and texture to any garden or landscape. Its attractive foliage, shade-providing canopy, and drought tolerance make it a great choice for a variety of planting situations, including as a shade tree, street tree, or accent tree.
