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 brown seedpods. Plant in full sun and prune as needed in the summer.
