This fine-textured shrub grows 3' tall and 3'-4' wide. It blooms heavily in spring and intermittently through the rest of year in response to moisture. It is quite cold tolerant although it will freeze to the ground in serious frost. Flower color ranges white to pink into sometimes red. It is good for erosion control and is drought tolerant. It will become deciduous over prolonged dry periods. It prefers coarse, well drained soil. Little pruning is needed. Also called: False Mesquite Information by: GardenSoft
