Celtis pallida (now ehrenbergiana), or Desert Hackberry, is a native tree that can grow up to 18 ft tall in desert scrub and grassland habitats from 1500-4000 ft. The small orange fruits provide forage for birds and wildlife, as well as being a larval host plant. This tree flowers March-April and again July-October. The tree is great for its low water requirements, and should be planted in full to partial sun in well-draining soil.
