Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis) potted tree, organic

(1 customer review)

$16.00

Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)

Family:  Bignoniaceae

Willowy shrub or small tree native to the deserts of southwestern US, Baja, and Mexico.  This plant is an indicator for subterranean water in the desert, and if it’s a good year for water, the large, trumpet-shaped flowers and associated sexy aroma can be exceptional.  The leaves, bark and flowers have diverse medicinal activity (see Moore’s “Desert and Canyon West.”)  Excellent anti-candida remedy.  Tree prefers full sun, dry soils, and occasional watering.  These potted individuals are vigorous (and very, very cute.)  I suppose they could be kept indoors in a sandy-soiled pot, and they certainly grow fine in a greenhouse.  Protect from frost.

Potted Tree, Certified Organically Grown

      hi caitlin, these are supposedly hardy down to zone 5 but one caveat they do need a sunny and dry position or they will go away in the winter. richo

      Hi. I’m in zone 9b and have Chitapla trees growing that leaf out in Spring. Would this tree do alright here as well? Thanks!
