Palo Verde is the state tree of Arizona, and the name translates from Spanish to “green stick,” in reference to the tree’s branches that stay green year-round. This unique feature allows the tree to appear evergreen, even when the leaves have been shed in winter or summer drought.
Blue Palo Verde is the first of this group of trees to carpet itself with clusters of fragrant yellow blooms in spring, standing out as a golden glow against wintery greys in desert washes, landscapes, and along roadsides and medians. A true desert tree, Palo Verde tends to be multi-trunked, and is small enough to fit into any residential landscape, protecting understory plants and patios from full reflected heat and sun.
