Chilopsis linearis Desert Diva?
Chilopsis linearis ???Lopur??? Desert Diva?is
an outstanding selection of Desert Willow
that was discovered at our Glendale nursery
after many years of experimental plantings.
Deep, emerald green leaves contrast nicely
with velvety white buds. Most often, buds
are a good indicator of flower color. Here,
there???s a twist. The pearlescent buds open to
a deep, dark, purple burgundy creating a dramatic,
over the top display. Dense, dark
green leaf clusters create lovely, soft, dappled
shade. The fragrant blossoms are a pollinator
magnet and a favorite of our beekeepers
here at Mountain States Nursery. So far,
our current stock is showing little or no seed
production which explains this plant???s ability
to be so abundantly floriferous.
