id for a thorny bush purple flowers : 2 posts by 2 authors. 1 message.
large bush, the branches have thorns similar to thorny caesalpinias yet the seeds are like acacia/prosopis
decidous (half of the year has flowers and leaves – therefore don’t have photo of leaves and flower)
main distinction is the individual seed compartments of the pod (don’t remember how exactly flowers look similar to)

As per the Characters could be Acacia pennata
