Summer gardens come alive when the large, colorful blossoms of desert willow burst forth. While not a true willow, it has bright green foliage that adds a visually cooling effect to summer gardens. Hummingbirds from all around are attracted by the pink and magenta flowers that appear from spring through fall, which provide light, filtered shade for plants below.While many desert trees can grow upward of 30 feet tall and high, this medium-size deciduous tree is perfectly suited for medium-size spaces, where its 20- by 15-foot spread can easily fit.
