This selection has a moderate growth rate which can reach a height of 20 to 25 feet. Another attribute of this willow is the lack of seed set usually only producing a few pods a season. The Bubba Desert Willow can be grown as a multi-trunk tree or as a single trunk standard. This drought and heat tolerant native is perfect for small back yards as a single specimen planting or planting in groups for a spectacular show of texture and flower production. Bubba Desert Willow was introduced by Paul Cox at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Zone (7-9)
