 This beautiful flower is know as "Desert Willow" Chilopsis linearis. Though not a true willow at all. It is found along the Trans-Pecos and central west Texas streams and dry creek beds. The flowers are blooming from April through September. It is easy to see why this has been cultivated for gardens across the state.
