Blue Palo Verde (Cercidium floridum)


This Blue Palo Verde is the classic version of the Palo Verde that has been growing in the Southwest for centuries. Known for its early arrival of bright golden yellow flowers, the Palo Verde is among the most popular trees used in desert and water-wise landscapes.

The vivid colors of this tree offer landscapers several ways to embellish their style as the green trunks show well with spotlights at night and stand out very well on their own during the day. The Blue Palo Verde is a highly durable specimen for desert planting due to its low water requirements and high soil tolerance.
