California Pepper (Schinus molle)
The California Pepper is an extremely fast-growing, sun-loving tree that flourishes in the warm climates of the Western United States. Native to areas with dry soil and warm temps, the California Pepper is well suited to warm, arid conditions. The upright, spreading canopy provides filtering shade over an increasingly broad area as the higher branches spread out.
Look forward to little maintenance as well. California Pepper trees keep their leaves throughout the year and need minimal pruning. With age, the California Pepper develops a gnarled powerful trunk supporting a medium sized graceful canopy of soft foliage.
