Andrew Keys added this to 6 Unsung Spring-Blooming Trees
Finally, another native Southwestern stunner: Mexican buckeye (Ungnadia speciosa, zones 7 to 9), a drought-resistant little tree with flirty pink-purple flowers in spring and striking arrowhead-shape foliage throughout the growing season that turns a pretty yellow in fall. Its flowers remind me of tiny hibiscus, and it grows to 25 feet high and 8 feet wide. As its name suggests, its big seed pods are reminiscent of unrelated buckeye.Photo by Stan Shebs Wikimedia CommonsMore:8 Sunny Spring FlowersVase Shapes Set Shrubs ApartSpring Planting: Wonderful Wisteria
