Wild for Willow

I ran across this project while IDing plants today, so decided to take a little road trip to photograph some roadside desert willow plants I know of in the north Phoenix and Scottsdale area. There are several populations along Cave Creek Road that have been there for at least the 35 years I've lived here. I'm not sure whether they are native Chilopsis linearis ssp. arcuata or came from seed from landscape debris; leaves seem short so I suspect the latter. I also found a number of trees planted in the median along Cave Creek and Scottsdale Roads.

I couldn't resist taking a drive along Desert Willow Parkway. There were a few trees planted in the landscaping. At Desert Willow School I was a little surprised to find only one plant in the landscaping out front.
