Chilopsis linearis 'Lopur' PPAF Desert Diva™ Desert Willow

'Lopur' Desert Diva™ Desert Willow

Chilopsis linearis 'Lopur' Desert Diva™ is an outstanding selection of Desert Willow that was discovered at our Glendale nursery after many years of experimental plantings. Deep, emerald green leaves contrast nicely with velvety white buds. Most often, buds are a good indicator of flower color. Here, there’s a twist. The pearlescent buds open to a deep, dark, purple burgundy creating a dramatic, over the top display. Dense, dark green leaf clusters create lovely, soft, dappled shade. The fragrant blossoms are a pollinator magnet and a favorite of our beekeepers here at Mountain States Nursery. So far, our current stock is showing little or no seed production which explains this plant’s ability to be so abundantly floriferous.
