Great Design Plant: Palo Blanco

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to Great Design Plant: Palo Blanco Softens Sharp Desert Angles
Distinguishing traits. Delicately beautiful palo blanco, with its soft texture, provides contrast in the desert landscape against the sharp angles of many agave and cacti. The willow-like foliage is made up of phyllodes, which are elongated petioles. Tiny leaflets appear in spring at the ends of the phyllodes. The leaflets drop during times of drought, but since the phyllodes also enable photosynthesis, the tree can survive without the leaflets.
