Desert Museum Palo Verde in grass

pbkleinApril 10, 2011

Thinking about planting a Desert Museum Palo Verde in bermuda grass. The grass is watered every three days for seven minutes in the summer. The tree will have three emitters. What problems could arise from planting this tree in grass?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Too much water after the first year. Remember they are native out in the desert where they don't get watered much of the time. Though a cultivated variety the basic tree is a desert tree. They don't do well in lawns. That I know, even twenty years after moving from Phoenix.
