Ungnadia speciosa (Mexican Buckeye)


Native to Texas, this deciduous, woody plant grows slowly to form a multi-trunked large shrub or small tree. The large dark green, compound leaves turn yellow in the fall. Spring brings lovely rose-pink flowers that emerge before the leaves. The flowers are followed by leathery, three-chambered pods that contain dark, shiny seeds. Plant in full sun to part shade and provide good drainage.
