It's a cultivar that I bought 30 years ago before I knew better. It's called Fantex Ash (fraxinus velutina). Oh well, it never complains, so I guess I shouldn't.
That Red Yucca that I posted budding out (Jan 26 post) is growing fast. A result of all that rain we had early last month. But this plant shouldn't be impacted by upcoming freezes. It'll be great to have blooms soon.
