Water Wise Plant of the Week: Desert Willow

Chilopsis linearis ‘Desert Willow’

This small deciduous tree is extremely drought tolerant once established.  Its open and airy structure displays long, narrow leaves that are highlighted by fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers.  It can be used as a border tree/large shrub, privacy hedge and even kept in a decorative pot or container.

Glendora Gardens maintains nearly 10 acres of nursery and growing grounds, including carefully arranged plant beds, koi ponds, and shade houses full of creative treasures. We welcome you to come explore the garden, wander among the wildlife, and be inspired!
