How to Grow Desert Willow from Seeds


The desert willow
is a small shrub-like tree that grows from 15 to 30  feet tall and wide with trumpet shaped,
pinkish-purple and white flowers. The desert willow 
is not actually related to the willow family.

Native to the southwestern United States, this shrub is drought- and heat-tolerant, but it can withstand winter temperatures down to only 20 degrees F. Desert willow seeds are easy to germinate, requiring no special treatment other than some well-draining soil, water and sunlight.

Desert Willow ‘Bubba’

Scientific Name: Chilopsis linearis ‘Bubba’


The Desert Willow ‘Bubba’ has become one of the most popular Chilopsis linearis cultivars because of it’s beautiful and fragrant trumpet shaped  pink-burgundy flowers.

 

The Desert Willow  produces large  clusters of flowers towards the tips  of the branches which persist from late spring to  early fall.

 

This cultivar of  Desert Willow is also popular because it does not typically  produce seed  pods.

Desert Willows have airy and rounded to spreading crowns that can be utilized as a large  shrub or  pruned into tree form.

 

The Desert Willow is highly tolerant  of drought and heat and performs best in sunny, dry or well  drained sites.

 

For landscapes that do not have the optimal drainage  for Desert Willows then raised beds can be built.

 

The leaves on a Desert Willow have a soft and fine  texture  that measure 5 to 7 inches long and 1/4 to  1/2 wide.

 

In the fall Desert Willows produce a simple yellow color.

 

The  Desert Willow is an excellent choice for courtyards, patios and west  Texas themed landscapes.
