Desert willow is a small tree with a big personality. Its blooms are nothing short of spectacular and are loved by bees, moths, butterflies, and hummingbirds. It is very drought tolerant, thriving in the sun and heat. In fact, the easiest way to kill a desert willow is to plant it in either a wet or poorly draining location. Desert willow plays well with others, providing light shade that allows plants underneath and around it to prosper.

'Bubba' is our favorite desert willow cultivar. It is robust, has fewer seedpods than the species and its blooms are deep pink color
