Found planted in an urban setting in western Riverside County in California.

It is a tall, woody perennial shrub(/tree) with dense clusters of elongate lanceolate leaves, terminating in a woolly bud cluster.

slightly resembles chilopsis linearis, but perhaps the ID will be better after those bud open..

It does resemble Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)

I agree
Fantastic ! Hurray!
Chilopsis linearis looks like a good match.
The California subspecies native to our deserts has more linear leaves, but as this specimen was planted it could well be another subspecies, or one of the cultivars.

Thank You!
