TREES

Mexican Buckeye
Sapindaceace Ungnadia speciosa

Pink flowers appear on bare branches just after the redbuds bloom in early spring.   The tree is multi-trunk if grown in full sun, but more open if grown as an understory tree.  The leaves are long and slender and turn yellow before dropping in the fall.  The seed pod hangs on in the winter even if the seed fall out.  It makes an interesting sculptured look in the winter.  It is drought tolerant when established.
