COMMENTS: One of the most desirable Texas- native ornamental trees. It is beautiful in the spring with clusters of white flowers. The fruit, a one seeded drupe, is a food source for a variety of animals in late summer. The fall color is spectacular. The glossy green leaves turn various shades ranging from pink-mauve to deep maroon. A drought-tolerant tree. The seeds have double dormancy so they are not often found in nurseries.
