Without thorns, use the leaves (small, bipinnately compound leaves) and bark color (maroon) to identify. Interestingly, the fragrant, bright yellow flowers offer no nectar and little pollen, thus are not visited as much as Catclaw Acacia that
does offer quite a bit more nectar and pollen.

See pictures of desert flowers from our acacia seeds for sale that grow quickly and furnish shade and wildlife habitat where other trees will not grow. Being a legume, it fixes nitrogen in the soil where it grows, although this is rather newly discovered and is still a poorly understood part of its life cycle.
The seed pods are eaten by numerous mammals, including squirrels, and other dessert animals. The very durable wood is valued for it's bright red mahogany color. We have grown over a thousand of these flowering desert shrubs from seeds and after the first year they need very little to No Watering at all. Their roots may penetrate 50 to 60 feet into the earth
to find moisture. White thorn acacia trees are a characteristic part of the vegetation in arid western regions of the Americas. These desert trees grow very fast and definitely prefer little water after they are established. Once a month - deep watering is best because it encourages the roots to go deep into the soil. Desert Acacia is among the fastest growing trees in the Southwest.
The tree's flowers will last for months with regular watering. In some areas, older Acacia Trees provide a bountiful harvest of wood for use in fireplaces and camp fires. They requiring little to No water and only low maintenance, have found a place in Southwest xeriscaped gardens and parks. They not only produce beans and blooms that attract wildlife, they provide perches
and nesting sites for birds, including even hummingbirds. Acacia is especially abundant in the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. It is characterized by deep and far-spreading roots and by numerous bright yellow flowers. The Acacia tree can easily and rapidly switch from utilizing one water source to the other. Occurring as respectable trees or as small flowering shrubs,
they cover a monumental range, spanning tens of millions of acres from the southern Rolling Plains and the Texas Gulf Coast westward across the Chihuahuan, Sonoran and Mojave Deserts. They prosper in a diversity of habitats, from humid and sandy coastal plains to the grassy prairies to perennial and intermittent streambeds to desert basin shrublands and dunes to flattop mesas to mile-high
rocky mountain slopes under 5000 feet. Acacia are adapted to an arid environment. Typically, the legumes, which have woody stems and branches, produce bipinnately compound leaves (leaves with two or more secondary veins, each with two rows of leaflets). They produce abundant slender 3 to 5 inch seedpods that serve as a nutritious food source for wildlife. They grow wide-spreading and
deep-reaching root systems that host colonies of bacteria that can fix nitrogen, one of the minerals most important to plant germination and growth. They shed their leaves in the winter. They bloom from spring though September. The pictures of acacia plants show that they do well in dry desert regions because their taproots that penetrate well below the surface of the soil. The white thorn
variety of this species also called Mescat Acacia is indigenous to the Southwest United States and across the Sonoran Desert as well. Their white thorns challenge browsing by desert herbivores. During extreme drought, the acacia may shed their leaves to further conserve moisture. Their seeds are abundant and protectively coated, may last for decades, serving as seed banks that improve the odds
for wide distribution and successful germination giving the plants a competitive botanical edge in the desert landscape. As hosts to nitrogen-fixing bacteria, they help enrich otherwise impoverished desert soils in which the plants and their progeny grow.
