I purchased one plant about six years ago. Today it is about 12' high, with spectacular blooms. This year it began blooming in May and blooms have persisted thru mid September. It has handled north Georgia winters with no problems. Seems unaffected by summer droughts. Rocky clay, no problem. It's so unusual and attractive I have purchased four more, three last year. Two are one-year old specimens; one is training to have a single 3' trunk topped by four equal branches each now about 2' tall. The other is a single trunk, now about 6' tall. These two have had a very few blooms already. Neighbors are amazed; they have never seen anything like Dam Pink. In dry, rocky clay soil, some on a slope, they thrive with minimal irrigation.Please note: This is NOT a true willow though the leaves resemble willow. It doesn't seek moisture as true willows do. I would avoid moist areas, and instead put it in a notably dry, non-sprinkler-systemed location. Highly recommended.

I was really excited to add this tree to my back yard. I have several desert willows pruned for their architecture interest. Desert willows are fragrant and beautiful. I purchased three of these to make sure I got one with multiple branches to obtain the look I am going for. However all three arrived "topped off" and now appear they will just grow bushy since the main trucks are cut off. They have not grown well. Maybe they will look better in a year.

Gorgeous and Hardy

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Chilopsis linearis Conchas Dam Pink:
I have ordered about 20 of these from this company. I have different types of desert willow on our property and I think this may be my favorite variety! The beautiful thing about chilopsis is their ability to respond to care and to bounce back from difficulty. What I mean is, typically if there are watered a lot, they grow a lot. If they are not watered very much, they just kind of go into a holding pattern waiting for a big dose of water to kickstart their growth. So especially the first growing season or two, I water frequently. Every day or every other day seems to be enough to really kick them into high gear. When I first plant them I make a greater for the roots that is about 4 inches deep. Then I fill that crater when I water, usually twice per watering session. So that the roots get really sopping wet. Once or twice I have had one that looked like it was going to die due to gopher damage. I watered it like crazy for a week or so and they almost always come back with new growth from the base of the trunk. As the instructions say, I give them mulch before the first freeze. Usually I just use straw or dry tree leaves. Each plant is very individual in terms of exact size and symmetry. Those who expect them to look like soldiers in a line might be disappointed. My only sadness for chilopsis in zone seven where we live, is that they are not evergreen and they do take a while to wake up in the spring. I always feel impatient waiting for them to come back to life! But then when they start blooming it is all worth it. The leaves sort of remind me of a cold hardy Oleander.
Service and delivery comments:
Mine arrived as healthy specimens in 5 inch pots. After I planted and heavily watered their first two growing seasons, wow did they grow quick!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I LOVE THIS TREE !
from Yorba Linda, CA
I bought this tree from High Country several years back. It looked like a stick when I got it. It grew pretty good the 1st two years, then I transplanted it to a full sun location. The tree is now multi-trunked , 12 ft high, 8-10 ft wide, it blooms all summer , it is georgeous ! I have had so many compliments on it ! My soil is hard clay.

Hoping it survives
from Fort Collins, CO
See all my reviews
If you see my other reviews you'll since a trend. When I opened my box in Spring of 2016 from HCG I was a bit shocked that the plants were so small and dainty. This was no exception, even in a 5" pot. I planted it in an area I'd given a lot of thought on the west side of our house with rock mulch. It's pretty hot and dry over here and plants that do well in that environment have been thriving here. Not this Chilopsis, though. It seemed to survive the growing season, but only just. No noticeable growth. It dropped its leaves early. We're in zone 5b, so I'm really just hoping it survives winter after such an anemic first season.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

beautiful native plant
By Central Texas gardener
from Marble Falls, TX
My desert willows have grown very fast and provide beautiful blooms. I'm thinking of trying to sprout some of the seeds from their bean pods. These are a recommended plant by our local Native Plant Society.

Should've taken off but didn't. This is has been a VERY disappointing year for my High Country Gardens starts.

Growing In Florida
from Altoona, FL
About Me Getting Started
I live in Altoona, Florida. I planted 2 and they both died back for the winter but came back strong...I'm in a zone 8b it gets down to low 20's here overnight I did not protect these at all. You definitely have to amend the soil here as it's all sand!

Another sturdy specimen from High Country Gardens
from Humboldt County, CA
I am in a risky zone for this small tree: winters are cool and wet. Like all the plants I have received from HCG, these arrived in great shape, with excellent care instructions. They have survived the winter & I expect a summer of growth and beauty. The zone-appropriate plants I've ordered have been 100% successful. I really appreciate the wide selection of Western natives!
Give this a try
from DEL NORTE CO
I am trying this due to its hardiest rating. WIll be interested to see how it holds up to the winter weather several days below zero so far, but above the minimum zone 5 setting. Wanted it due to attractive color and size. Also drought tolerance as our area only receives aboout 8 inches of natural precipitation.,
from zone 7 Pa.
This is a lovely tall addition. Keeps flowering long into fall and early winter with delicate large pink blooms. Needs to be staked but easy to grow in part shade. First year plant so not sure how it will survive a cold winter.
By Renee S
from Pendleton, OR
I researched this extensively before buying, and was delighted when it not only shot up weeks after planting, but bloomed the first year. It is planted in the hottest part of my yard and thrived during our hottest summer on record. If it does well over the winter I'll be planting more.

Merchant response: We sincerely apologize that the Chilopsis liinearis Conchas Dam Pink have not meet your expectations. These are shipped as immature plants and they would need the first year to work on establishing a healthy root system. We do have a full guarantee for one year from the ship date so we would certainly suggest that you give them some more time. If you are not satisfied with them next year please contact us and we will be more than happy to go over some resolution options with you. Happy Gardening!

I planted 3 of these spectacular Desert Willow trees on my lawn and they are stopping traffic when in bloom. The flowers look like huge orchids. Everyone wants to know what this tree is. I highly recommend this tree!
