Best known for the name Desert Museum, this thornless hybrid tree with small delicate leaves has a vigorous growth, sturdy upright branching habit. It is a fast growing large shrub or small shade tree.
It blooms large bright yellow flowers in mid-spring through early summer in southern Arizona. This semi-deciduous tree does not produce messy seed pods.
It is a three way hybrid between a Blue Palo Verde, Foothills Palo Verde, and Mexican Palo Verde, having all the good characteristics of each. They are disease and pest resistant, bloom over a long period of time with very little litter, and require little water. Hummingbirds love to nest in these trees.
