Join the June EcoQuest: Wild for Willow! Help us find and map as much Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis) as we can.
Have you noticed a tree with big, beautiful violet or light pink blooms lately? It’s likely Desert Willow. This Arizona native plant thrives in our desert heat and continues to display its showy flowers even in the hottest days of summer. It’s also a great resource for wildlife, providing food, cover, and habitat, especially birds and pollinators.
EcoQuests are month long challenges that are part of the larger Metro Phoenix EcoFlora project. Learn more and follow the Metro Phoenix EcoFlora project.
