New Mexico Wildflowers: Bignonia Family

Flowers are organized alphabetically by genus and species. Hover over a photo series to control the images.


Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)

Desert Willows are not true willows. Instead they're related to Catalpa trees.  They can be found in desert settings where moisture is concentrated. My own photos show Desert Willows that have established themselves in a stormwater retention pond.
