Desert willow tree

Zone Artesia NM 88210 | pat_kennedy2003 added on June 1, 2017 | Answered

My desert willow has stared losing its leaves. Half the tree has leaves and blossoms, on the other half the leaves are dyeing and falling off. However the limbs are still pliable. It has been in my yard about 5 years. Has been very healthy until this spring. Can you help me?

Desert Willow are quite pest free and drought tolerant.

Poorly draining soil and excess moisture from rains can cause die back of the plant.
