This willow took off growing its first season here in Santa Fe and Bloomed!! numerous times with beautiful deep purple trumpet-shaped flowers. Very impressive growth - I planted it in late May. I hope it continues to thrive into its second season.

I ordered and planted a purple and white one last May. By the end of summer, the white one had barely grown two inches - but it only had 1 stalk with two branches when I received it. The purple one did grow several inches on the very tiny plant of just 3 stalks. After winter now at the end of April, both plants appear dead. The plants were planted following the instructions, and water regularly throughout the summer. They received mulch and were planted in a protected spot. Our winter here was a very mild one. I planted 40 plants, shrubs and trees last spring, but I am disappointed that neither of these survived, and never thrived over summer, while the ones I bought at big-box stores all grew much more in one summer, seem to have come through and are growing well this spring. I paid more on this website, hoping I would get good quality specialty plants, but it has not been a good experience. I feel the plants sent are simply too small. I would not recommend buying them here, as the plants sent are so small they could easily be mistaken for "weeds", and I think it is too hard to grow them successfully from this stage.

A great showy bloomer
from Santa Fe
See all my reviews
Because this is either the 2nd or 3rd try, I'm giving this only 4 stars. This time, I put it in a pot, and it bloomed the first season. It's very beautiful and showy.Right now, it's in a protected place, and will be planted in it's permanent place in the spring.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this plant, it has been very beautiful and healthy.
I am taking a chance on this plant because it is not going to make it through one of our horrible winters. I believe this plant will be happy here because of our continuing drought and warmer winters so I may have a plant that will adapt and be very happy. I did place the plants where there would be special protection and so far the two plants have bloomed beautifully. I am looking forward to moving this plant to other places on my area(160a) so they may become a real asset.
It's a Beauty!
from Chino, California
This is a beautiful, wispy looking tree that loves the heat. Great for California high desert locations. The tree arrives small, but grows really fast. Make sure to plant or place it where it gets at least 6 hours of sunlight. I love the red bark of the mature tree which is reminiscent of the Manzanita bush. Of course, the little bell shaped flowers are lovely too!
Love this! Would definitely buy it again!
from Nampa, ID
Bought this Spring 2017. Was a little disappointed when it first arrived, because it was smaller than I expected -- about 6" tall. Planted it in a pot on my back patio and within about 2 weeks noticed flower buds that ended up being extraordinarily beautiful flowers. And they weren't tiny either, each one was about 2 inches long. It took a short rest and now I am seeing another new flush of flower buds. Very excited and happy with this purchase.

Excellent Desert Willow
By Darby C
from Alamogordo nm
You sent me this little beauty last fall. As usual with HCG product, it looked great. As of the beginning of our hottest weather, it is flourishing. It has leafed out beautifully and the blossoms are abundant. Bees and butterflies use it frequently. I am looking forward to next year's growth already!

Will have to wait a season to see how this takes hold in an area that I am trying to naturalize. Good looking out of the box though.

Okay, I am adding to my first review, and I am happy to tell you, it's bearing leaves like crazy. It will be even bigger this year since it's the second year. I love this tree.

I planted this last summer. It bloomed right away and was beautiful and frangrant. At this time, it's early spring and chilly. I haven't seen any new growth, as yet, so we shall see if it tolerated the winter here.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
