Desert Willow Bubba

A unique and popular selection prized for an especially long bloom season. The lovely burgundy and lavender, two-tone, trumpet-shaped fragrant flowers appear late spring through summer. Showy clusters occur at the tips of the branches in this graceful open canopy of narrow, willow-like leaves. An excellent seed-free drought and heat resistant shrub that achieves proportions of a small tree over time. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
