Chilopsis linearis Lucretia Hamilton™ (Desert Willow )

Chilopsis linearis Lucretia Hamilton™
Desert Willow

This small, slow-growing deciduous tree has narrow, light green leaves that create a weeping appearance. This clone was selected for its intense burgundy flowers and its small stature. Fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers are produced throughout the summer, and are followed by persistent long narrow seedpods. Plant in full sun to part shade and provide well-drained soil.
