Featured TREE! Parkinsonia Desert Museum Palo Verde Tree

Our featured plant this month is a TREE!  The Palo Verde is a fast growing, thornless tree with an upright habit.  It has small bright green compound leaves and smooth lime green bark.  Masses of large, bright yellow flowers bloom from March through May with sporadic flowering during the summer months.  This tree is great in offering some shade to a cactus garden or protecting sun-sensitive veggies. It’s one of our favorites!
