Very popular small trees adorned through much of the spring and summer with large clusters of showy white flowers. It is indigenous to the chaparral areas of extreme southern Texas and well into Mexico. Preference for sandy, gravely, well drained soils. Requires ample water to become established, after which it is generally considered quite water efficient. Periodic, deep soakings through the hottest period of summer will aid in leaf retention and improved color. These plants don't like to be grown in pots, in spite of their small size, and usually don't look very happy in containers; however once planted in the ground,they grow faster and start thriving. Cold tolerant plant, takes some freeze.
