PALO VERDE FLOWERING

Here is one piece of the flowering tree. I just did not get a photo of the many seen along the freeways and roads around town. They were waving in the wind like huge yellow flames. This particular tree had cars under it and a non flowering tree crammed into its side, so I did not have the opportunity to show it well. When they lose their bloom, they can have a bright yellow “shadow” under them. The next type of palo verde will flower in a short while.  They tend to grow along washes, arroyos, and roadways, and where intentionally planted where they will get a good watering at times.
