I am also wondering about this tree as well... It also has pink flowers.
Do you have a closer picture? I'm just guessing but it looks like a Desert Chitalpa to me (Chilopsis linearis).
Here is a link that might be useful: Chilopsis linearis
Yeah a closer shot would be better but I agree with GT, from those pics, it does look like it could be a desert willow
Shoot, I was driving, and it was a spur of the moment shot. Thanks for trying...
lil, did you open the link I attached to my first message? Does the tree you saw looks like a desert willow?
I have a plant id COD (compulsive obssesive disorder) so....
Glad to know you then! My SO (who was the one who commented how pretty it was) said it's not quite right. I can't remember the details enough to tell. It's seems like the leaves weren't so spikey, though.
Hi Lil, google Chitalpa tree (Chitalpa tashkentensis) which is cross of the Catalpa (Catalpa bignoides)and the Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis) and look at the pics and see, the flowers and shape look like it could be
LMBO, I don't want that rep!!!! I did think chinaberry from these pics but....the other tree id thread the flowers don't look like chinaberry to me.
Take a peek at that tree, lol
Sorry Jolana, you've already earned it :-)
I've lost track. The pictures on the two threads are of different trees, aren't they? From the shape of the trees above they look like Desert Willows to me.
HAHAHA, I don't know either now. I thought she said they were the same but the flowers were gone, lol
Yes, these trees are different from the other thread. I forgot to glance at the trees when I drove by them again the other day. I'm not sure if I can get a close up since they are next to a busy street.
Lil Tomato,you are right not to try to get a pic there
Jolana! It's for the sake of knowledge!! :D
HAHAHA, okay GT, now Lil tomato sees what is important, lol
Duh!! Isn't obvious?
We were driving by these trees again, and I think it might be the Dessert Willow or the cross that Jolana pointed out after all. The flowers were light pink and the leaves were pointy after all!
They look so similar in the pictures that I can't tell which one it is, though.
