Desert Willow Trees

The Desert Willow is a great tree for the desert Southwest, it actually grows wild in New Mexico arroyos.

Medium growth, 15 to 25 feet high, full sun and very drought and heat tolerant.

Beautiful, showy flowers in shades of white to pink grace the tree from late spring through the summer, followed by long slender seed pods.

Flower and seed litter could be a problem in rock landscapes, but the flowers make the Desert Willow tree very worth planting.
