They remind me of miniature orchids!

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this before. It’s a lovely tree. The leaves look familiar, though, so maybe I’ve seen it and not realized it. Very nice!
Linda — these are popular in TX … I am sure you’ve seen them … and they may be filled out more than ours … the past few years of severe drought, and zero water followed with very cold winters (in compare to usual winters) has taken a toll on it. We’ve lost several limbs this year, and had to cut them away!
Maybe not! Here’s the USDA distribution map, and there’s a lot of “it ain’t here” around the coastal areas and Galveston/Houston. I did figure out what the leaves remind me of, though. They look like oleander leaves.
They are similar, but I believe these leaves are narrower! Thank you for sharing the map! You are a wealth of information! ❤
Beautiful flowers, Becca ~ I’ve never seen a dessert willow before. The ones we grow in the UK are hardy and prolific but need huge amounts of water. 🙂
Jacqueline — these are drought resistant … and do not droop as gracefully as weeping willows. The flowers remind me of miniature orchids!
