Desert willows have been popular in native Southwestern landscapes for years. The large, showy flowers produced during the heat of the summer provide months of color and attract hummingbirds. Unfortunately, most desert willows produce many long, narrow seed pods which persist on the plant for months. Art Combe, a famed plantsman, created this seedless form of desert willow. Art's Seedless® has large, pink-rose flowers, long narrow bright green leaves, but no messy seed pods. This selection will bloom almost continuously from late spring until first frost. This thornless, heat-tolerant, water-efficient tree grows at a fairly rapid rate.
