Prosopis x Phoenix®

Thornless Grafted Mesquite

This grafted tree is thornless, fast-growing, and semi-evergreen. The top of the plant is a clone of South American hybrid mesquite, while the rootstock is our native Prosopis juliflora. This rootstock has slowed down the top growth, resulted in healthier branching structure, and provides a solid root system. Lush green compound leaves provide dense summer shade. Light yellow catkin flowers are followed by a few brown seedpods. Plant in full sun and prune as needed in the summer.
