New Mexico Locust
A remarkable deciduous shrub or small tree with growth to 15 ft. A rare drought tolerant native that grows in the southwest from Colorado and Utah to the Grand Canyon. Bright green foliage with beautiful purple flower clusters that hang from branches. If you have seen this plant in the wild you will never forget it! There is really nothing else like it. Although related to other Locusts’, it doesn’t have the invasive, spreading characteristics, this one is a keeper!
