Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora)

Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora)


Texas Mountain Laurel grow well in sun or shade; they are evergreen, with grape-scented flower clusters in March and April. The fragrant flowers resemble wisteria and bloom early in spring. In south-central Texas, mountain laurel is commonly found on well-drained Hill Country limestone. However, it’s a very popular landscape specimen can be used in both heavy clay and sandy soils. Although slow-growing and difficult to transplant, mountain laurel is one of the best small trees for any landscape. It’s extremely drought-hardy, so avoid over-watering and especially over-fertilizing. The stonelike red beans are poisonous; however, they’re so hard they can pass through any digestive tract – human or animal. Local Native Americans considered the beans so valuable they traded them over long distances into Mexico. In central Texas they grow 15 to 25 feet tall and 10 to 20 feet wide.
