Question

Guamuchil

I bought a Guamuchil tree. Can this tree grow in a dry and clay soil in Phoenix? How often do I need to water it?

Answer

The Pithecellobium dulce aka Guamuchil tree aka Monkeypod trees are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the North and South America. Currently in the US the Guamuchil tree is know to inhabit Texas, Florida and Hawaii (Where it is invasive) it is suitable for most dry regions and rather drought resistant, in low rainfall regions it will develop an extensive root system. In Phoenix I would recommend watering the tree occasionally to avoid drought stress and encourage healthy growth, once established the tree will need little water.
