Native to deserts and other arid regions of southern California and northern Mexico, Desert Willow can usually be found growing in washes and along riverbanks. It naturally grows as a shrub or tree but is usually found in nurseries in tree form (both single and multi trunk). It typically reaches 15 to 20 feet tall and wide, although older specimens may reach a height of up to 30 feet. Its willow-like foliage remains throughout most of the year but drops in winter when the plant goes dormant. Late spring into early fall it blooms with fragrant white to pink flowers with striped purple throats. Plant in full sun in lean soil and water infrequently to not at all once established. Can take high exposure and reflected heat, making it good for sidewalk plantings. Its seed pods do produce litter, but there are some varieties (such as ‘Bubba’) that are bred to produce fewer seed pods. Tolerates alkaline soil, sand, clay and seasonal flooding.
