Desert Willow

Desert Willow
The desert willow, scientifically named Chilopsis linearis, is the only species within the genus Chilopsis. It is sometimes called flowering willow, willow-leaved catalpa and trumpet flower. The desert willow is native to the U.S., and may be found from south-central Texas south to Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas in Mexico and west all the way to southern California. The desert willow is able to withstand drought conditions and extreme heat.
This deciduous tree can reach a mature height of 12 feet / 3.7 meters to 36 feet / 11 meters and a spread of 15 feet / 4.6 meters to 25 feet / 7.6 meters. The crown of the desert willow is irregularly shaped, rather round and spreading. Its growth rate is fast, and the leaves of the desert willow are green year round. The trumpet-like flowers appear from spring through summer, with colors that include white, pink, purple and violet. This photo was taken in my garden.
