Desert museum Paloverde is our newest available product – it’s a thornless paloverde! We harvested the first trees yesterday and were thrilled with the root structure. In nature, a paloverde tree may have three long roots with very few fibrous roots. However, Desert Museum is a three-way Parkinsonia cross and the root system seems more like the retamas root system. We will cure these trees for three weeks before delivering to our customers and expect them to transplant well.
The flower is a yellow shaped flower just like the retama flower. In the field, it blooms from spring through fall. One of the most beautiful aspects of this tree is the color of the branches – a vibrant green. And did I mention that this is a thornless paloverde. I think it will be a wonderful addition to the tree pallet of South Texas.
