Desert Willow belongs to a genus of flowering plant, containing a single species, Chilopsis linearis. It is a shrub/small tree native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. Gardeners love this plant because it evokes the shape of a true Willow, but produces a canopy of intensely colored flowers (see other picture)
Desert Willow is not particularly fussy about soil type, but it must be well drained, and does not like to be over watered. Hummingbird and Bee magnet.
