Desert Willow With Zero Hassle & Tons of Color

The Sweet Bubba Seedless Desert Willow is a low-maintenance, multi-trunk tree with many benefits. If you like the Bubba Desert Willow and Sweet Katie Burgundy Desert Willow, then you’re in luck because this tree is a cross between the two!

Exhibiting all the characteristics of Bubba, this variety has a much bigger bloom that’s burgundy in color. And as an added bonus, it's virtually seedless, for less mess! This variety is also heavy-blooming and long-blooming.

Theses eye-catching, magenta flowers will add exquisite color to your space! Plus, this Willow has large, dark green, glossy leaves that add interest even after the blooms have faded.

What's more is that its flowers are fragrant and attract pollinators, so you'll enjoy watching as hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and more flock to your garden!

The ‘Sweet Bubba’ is also disease-resistant, drought-tolerant, and low-maintenance. It thrives in dry, low-water climates, meaning you get all of these amazing perks with little effort.

Purchase the Sweet Bubba Seedless Desert Willow today, and add a stunning focal point to your yard!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Place in an area where it can receive full sunlight (between 6-8 hours per day) in dry soil. Since this tree grows rapidly and widely, space it from other plants and trees accordingly. For an instant privacy screen, plant these trees 5 feet apart. To give the trees a bit more room (which requires less work in terms of pruning), plant them 20 to 30 feet apart. You can plant them in a straight line, or in two staggered rows. 

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole as deep as the root ball but twice as wide. Then, place the tree in the hole to check the depth - if the level of the soil surrounding the hole is higher than the root ball, pick the tree up, put some more soil in the hole, and replace the tree. Then, back fill the soil and water to settle.

2. Watering: Water regularly until established. Since this tree thrives in hot, dry conditions, be careful not to overwater. 

3. Pruning: Desert Willows require pruning primarily to control their size and shape and to remove dead branches. Cut dead branches all the way back to the trunk, stopping at least ½ inch before the trunk. The pruning cut will heal itself.

If you’re growing the Willows as a hedge, trim once a year in the winter, which will encourage the tree to branch out and become denser throughout the summer.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilizing your Desert Willows isn't necessary and excessive fertilizing can damage them.
