The desert willow is one of many desert plants that do quite well in many settings throughout California and beyond (the list keeps growing with experimentation). It is native to the deserts of southeastern California into the Southwest, often in washes where it likely has access to subterranean moisture. Many of the plants from this region of California are relatively tolerant of summer moisture, presumably because of the substantial monsoonal moisture they receive during the summer months. The desert willow grows as a rounded, upright multi-trunk tree, but can be pruned into a single trunk tree. The dense, rich-green foliage and abundant tubular flowers make for a showy summer display. The ‘Maggie’s Pink’ selection is from Moosa Creek Nursery in San Diego County. The flowers are dark pink/magenta. This is a great choice for a street tree in the San Francisco bay area.
