Desert Ironwood trees are slow-growing evergreen trees that gets to be about 20-30 feet tall. These trees have a rounded crown and have tiny leave and small lavender blooms. They can get to be about 25 feet in diameter and the branches have a silver-looking skin that separates at the trunk to look more aggressive and can resist sun scolding. These trees do have a seasonal litter and have lots of small to medium-sized thorns. These trees do best in full sun and only grow in our Sonoran desert. These desert adaptable trees can live without an irrigation system running to them but they grow much fuller and healthier looking when watered more regularly with the drip irrigation system. We do recommend light pruning to keep the canopy upright on the tree.
