10 Foothills Palo Verde Seeds $2.99
Plant description: The foothills palo verde is a slower-growing shrub or tree that's native to the Southwest and parts of Northern Mexico. It has a very unusual green bark, which is full of chlorophyll. This allows the tree to focus its energy in the trunk, rather than via large, water-needing leaves. As a result the leaves are quite small, hence the name 'littleleaf'.
