Tucson Oasis

This almost cottage style desert landscape displays an almost seamless transition between existing plantings, transplanted specimens, and new additions to the landscape.

Howdy Machacino,

Sorry for the delayed response - We experienced some technical glitches and unfortunately are just now seeing your question. This is a Mesquite tree - it is actually a hybrid of several South American species of mesquites and possibly even our Arizona native Velvet Mesquite that produced a fast growing thornless variety. It is still often marketed in the nurseries as a "Chilean Mesquite" but you'll want to make sure that it is a thornless variety, otherwise the true Chilean Mesquites have very large thorns (large enough to use as a nail even - I've seen it done!).

Thank you for your question and please let us know if you have any more.
