Desert Willow 'Bubba'
Scientific Name: Chilopsis
Willow 'Bubba' has
become one of the most popularChilopsis linearis cultivars
because of it's beautiful and fragrant trumpet
shaped pink-burgundy flowers. The Desert
Willow produces large clusters of
flowers towards the tips of the branches which
persist from late spring to early fall. This
cultivar of Desert Willow is also
popular because it does not typically produce
seed pods. Desert Willows have airy and
rounded to spreading crowns that can be
utilized as a large shrub or pruned into
tree form. The Desert Willow is highly
tolerant of drought and heat and performs
best in sunny, dry or well drained sites. For
landscapes that do not have the optimal
drainage for Desert Willows then raised beds
can be built. The leaves on a Desert
Willow have a soft and fine texture that
measure 5 to 7 inches long and 1/4 to 1/2
wide. In the fall Desert Willows produce a
simple yellow color. The Desert Willow is an
excellent choice for courtyards, patios and
west Texas themed landscapes.
