Answer: Fraxinus uhdei, or Shamel Ash, is a good choice for your southern California landscape. It will remain evergreen in your mild winter climate. The tree will occasionally drop the older leaves, but will never be completely bare. Other considerations include Castanospermum australe (Moreton Bay Chestnut) Cinnamomum camphora (Camphor Tree), Elaeocarpus decipiens (Japanese Blueberry Tree) and Quercus agrifolia (Coast Live Oak).
