A remarkable deciduous shrub or small tree with growth  to 8ft. 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!

Colorado Hardy Plants are just that… hardy! We have sought out plant varieties that provide low maintenance, use little or no water once established, and are simply hardy enough to grow where others don’t.

We grow and ship our plants in 5″ or quart-size (in certain varieties) plastic containers. Knowing that the root system is the most important part of the plant we guarantee. our plants to have a large root system that fills the container.

CHP is a small family operation! We propagate, pot, water, prune, and personally package the plants you order from us. Most of our plants are grown from cuttings taken from the plants or seeds collected nearby the nursery at an elevation of 6300 ft. Our weather is extreme with temps below 0 are common in the winter and intense sunlight all summer long. We don’t grow plants in heated greenhouses, they have to be able to survive the elements!

Please note that deciduous plants ordered in the winter months and early spring will have been pruned a minimum of 30% compared to photos and may have no leaves

    I ordered one in quart size, and it arrived in great condition in a tall, narrow pot with well-developed roots.
