Comments about High Country Gardens Chilopsis linearis Monhews:
I purchased one plant about six years ago. Today it is about 12' high, with spectacular blooms. Last 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 very unusual and attractive. Neighbors are amazed; they have never seen anything like Monhews. More recently I have purchased four additional "Dam Pink" because of their recommendation for clay So far in dry, rocky clay soil, some on a slope and strong afternoon sun, both of these these Chilopsis have thrived 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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
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.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
