HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR THE PALO VERDE
If you’re seeking an extraordinary, drought-tolerant tree that brings a unique flair to your landscape, the Palo Verde (Parkinsonia spp.) might be the perfect choice. Esteemed for its vibrant green bark and stunning yellow blooms, the Palo Verde is a jewel of desert landscapes and a popular choice in arid and semi-arid regions. With a moderate height typically ranging from 20 to 30 feet and a spread of about 20 feet, this tree is ideal for adding both shade and color to your outdoor space.
The Palo Verde, Spanish for “green stick,” gets its name from its distinctive green trunk and branches, which carry out photosynthesis. This characteristic allows the tree to thrive in hot, dry climates. The bright yellow flowers that blossom in spring are not only visually striking but also attract various pollinators, adding life and vibrancy to your garden.
When considering a Palo Verde for your landscape, keep in mind its preference for full sun and well-drained soil. This tree is highly drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering once established, making it an excellent choice for water-wise gardening.
Pruning should be done sparingly to maintain the tree’s natural, open form and to remove any dead or damaged branches. It’s best to prune in late winter or early spring before the bloom season begins.
Planting a Palo Verde is more than just adding a tree; it’s about embracing a piece of the desert’s beauty and resilience. Its low water needs and stunning floral display make it a favorite among those looking to create a sustainable, yet vibrant landscape.
