Palo Brea (Cercidium praecox)
Apart from its appearance, the Palo Brea is highly prized for its hardiness. They need very little water and maintenance to keep their showy appearance. The Palo Brea is a favorite in many landscape designs, sporting a vibrant yellow display in mid-spring.
The Palo Brea is best known for the smooth green trunks and branch structure that make this tree a favorite to light up at night. The uniquely shaped trunks twist and turn to form irregular, wonderful patterns that provide a focal point to any water-wise/desert style landscape.
