Desert Willow, Flowering Willow; Desert Catalpa
Mountain States Nursery
This desert willow is open and airy as a small tree, and with age develops shaggy bark and twisting trunks. The flowers of the tree appear in spring and through the fall while the leaves will drop early. Pruning this 25' tree can make it very attractive. Needs good drainage. Is rather unattractive in winter. Native in desert washes to 5000'. Some supplemental water will improve appearance. Moderately fast. Seed pods are persistant. Cannot tolerate overwatering. Flowers on new wood.
