Brazilian Pepper (Schinus terebinthifolius)


The Brazilian pepper tree is a small, evergreen shade tree that grows well in the Western United States. Adaptable to many environments, the Brazilian Pepper grows as either a single trunk or a multi-trunk tree. It is well known for its hardiness in desert environments and requires little care and maintenance once established.

The red colored peppers combined with the dark green, dense foliage make this tree an attractive and popular tree to plant in landscapes that need color. Multi-trunk trees make a great specimen in landscape designs, especially combined with landscape lighting.
