Adorn your hot and dry landscape with the captivating beauty of the Sweet Bubba Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis ‘Sweet Bubba’). This low-maintenance bloomer is a superstar when it comes to drought tolerance and heat resistance. Unlike many flowering trees, the Sweet Bubba thrives in the very conditions that challenge other plants, making it a perfect choice for water-conscious gardens. But its resilience isn’t its only claim to fame. Throughout the spring, summer, and even early fall, the Sweet Bubba explodes with clusters of fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers. Unlike other Desert Willows, the ‘Sweet Bubba’ boasts blooms in a particularly striking shade of dark burgundy, adding a dramatic pop of color to your outdoor space. The fragrance of these flowers is another delightful feature, attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees for a vibrant display of life in your garden. This Texas native isn’t just about the flowers, though. The Sweet Bubba Desert Willow boasts a graceful and airy form. Its soft, light green leaves contribute to this feeling of lightness, and its rounded or spreading crown can be maintained as a large shrub for a relaxed aesthetic or pruned into a picturesque tree, adding a touch of elegance to your design. No matter your preference, the Sweet Bubba will bring both beauty and low-maintenance charm to your landscape. An excellent choice for patios, courtyards, and landscapes with a West Texas flair, the Sweet Bubba Desert Willow is also known as the Flowering Willow, Willowleaf Catalpa, and Desert Catalpa. This versatile and visually striking tree is sure to add a touch of desert magic to your outdoor space, all while requiring minimal effort on your part.
