About the Plant:
Velvet mesquite tree tolerates almost any soil type from well-drained, fertile soil to rocky, native soil. It can even be grown in a lawn as long as it is watered deeply and the soil is not too heavy. Newly planted velvet mesquite trees may require extensive staking until established, especially if an upright growth habit is desired. Velvet mesquite trees do not require supplemental fertilizer. Prune to thin, shape or raise the canopy in the late summer. Pruning this tree in spring causes rampant growth. During the first year, water velvet mesquite tree every seven to ten days. Once established, little or no additional water is required.
