Shade tree for dry landscapes of all types.  Upright and spreading, develops a broadly umbrella-shaped form when mature.  Though Chilean mesquite has a symmetrical form, its inner crown branch topology is chaotic, rugged trunk and crown character.  Chilean mesquite is a semi-evergreen.  Its rate of growth is strongly depended on water availability. If water is available, then the shoot growth rate is rapid. Well-watered trees can exceed 50 feet in height with a much greater spread (up to 100 feet in diameter). In Phoenix, Chilean mesquite remains semi-dormant each year from December to April.  Highly tolerant of desert heat and soil conditions. 

Scientific name:  Prosopis chilensis
