Plant Highlights

Desert willows have long narrow leaves and produce an abundance of fragrant flowers from late spring and continue to early fall. The flowers from the tree are favorites with hummingbirds and other pollinators. This deciduous tree is easy and fast-growing. It is naturally a multi-trunk tree but can be pruned to a single trunk. Use it for summer shade in a dry garden where its dramatic blooms will draw plenty of attention. ‘Maggie’s Pink’ Desert Willow has vibrant pink flowers that are a deeper shade of pink than the species and lighter than the variety known as ‘Burgundy’. This tree is named in honor of Maggie Olsen, long-time assistant to Greg Rubin of California’s Own Native Landscape Design. She is known for her dependability and cheerful demeanor, just like this attractive small tree! ‘ Maggie’s Pink’ is tolerant of most soils but does well in sandy soils. It is found naturally in desert areas near watercourses and takes moderate water. Height ranges from 15’ to 25’ with a width of about 10’ to 15’. Horticultural selection Greg Rubin. Introduced by Moosa Creek Nursery 2016
