Description: Very pretty, fast growing Texas native small tree that likes moist areas but adapts to dry areas, prefers part sun to shade, grows 16′ tall and wide. Grows great as a small tree or shrub. The shrub thickets make great hedge rows or for erosion control. Blooms clusters of showy white flowers April through June that provide nectar for many butterflies and pollinators. The flowers then turn to white fruit that at least 40 species of birds eat. This deciduous tree will give you nice red leaf color in the fall before the leaves drop. These are not deer resistant.
