NATURAL HISTORY: The Blue and
Foothills Palo Verdes are Arizona's State Tree.
Paloverde means "green stick" in Spanish, referring to the smooth,
green bark in which photosynthesis takes place.
This allows the tree to drop its leaves (drought deciduous) to
conserve water, yet still photosynthesize. Compared to Foothills
Palo Verde, Blue Palo Verdes need more water thus tend to be more
restricted to washes and roadsides.
The seeds are very hard, thus are not as easily eaten by humans, but
you should hear what it sounds like when Javelina crunch
up the seeds with their strong teeth.
The seeds need to be scarified (abraded, as occurs in flash floods
or digestive tracts) or weathered underground a few years before
The flowers are an important source of nectar and pollen for many
species of solitary bees, as well as other insects.
