Desert Museum Palo Verde
Cercidium x 'Desert Museum'
|Description||This gorgeous, thornless hybrid makes a fine, upright shade tree. Large yellow blossoms give a dazzling display of color in the spring, lasting longer than any other in the species. May re-bloom in summer if given supplemental water. After the foliage falls, the trunk and stems remain green, providing year-round interest. Produces very few seedpods.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally.|
|Mature Size||Fast grower to 25 ft. tall and wide.|
|Care||Requires well-drained soil. Water regularly and deeply during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Drought tolerant when established. Prune for shape and structure after flowering.|
|Lore||Native to the Sonoran Desert, the palo verde tree is Arizona's official state tree. Two species share this title: blue palo verde (Parkinsonia Florida) and foothill palo verde (P. microphylla).|
