Looking for a unique addition to your garden? Consider Parkinsonia florida, also known as the blue palo verde. This tree is native to the Sonoran Deserts of the Southwestern United States and Northwestern Mexico and is drought-deciduous, shedding its foliage for most of the year. Its blue-green trunk, branches, and leaves perform photosynthesis, making it a fascinating sight in any garden. In late spring, the tree is covered in bright yellow flowers that attract pollinators like bees, beetles, and flies. This tree also has a rich history of Native American use, with beans being used as food and the wood being made into ladles. Cultivate this unique tree in a drought-tolerant and wildlife garden for a stunning addition to your landscaping.
