Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis) potted tree, organic
Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)
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
