Desert Willow tree

Zone Cle Elum, WA 98922 | Wes jones added on January 23, 2016 | Answered

I am interested in planting some desert willow trees but need to know a little more about them. I live in a semi-arid area in Eastern/Central Washington, Cle Elum, where I have hot and dry summers, but snow and low temperatures in the winter. My soil is a clay type. Related to this I wonder about the problem of deer browse. Can you provide these trees if they might be suitable for my location? If not, where might I purchase? This same question applies to the Afghan Pine.
