This is the thornless Chilean Mesquite tree, Prosopis chilensis, and this heat-loving, drought tolerant tree is a beautiful addition to any waterwise landscape or planted next to pathways or patios! Native to South America, this is the classic desert tree with a wide canopy of soft, bright green, fern-like foliage covering dark, twisting branches, for a look that brings visual interest to any landscape. We have these hybrid Chilean Mesquite trees for sale in single or multi-trunk and at sizes that can provide light filtered shade. Plant a few of them together as groves and feel free to relax on your porch even when it’s bright and sunny outside!

Chilean Mesquite trees love full sun exposure and once established, will have little to moderate watering needs. This mesquite tree has a rapid growth rate so you will not have to wait too many years to enjoy the beauty this tree can bring to your yard. Of course, we have bigger sizes available right now so that they can create an instant landscape that is sure to add curb appeal. They love to grow in the Southwest and make excellent companions to Bougainvillea and Yucca plants!
