Mexican Buckeye

Mexican Buckeye is a deciduous small tree or large shrub has pink flowers in spring before the compound leaves emerge.  When in flower it suggests Redbud (Cercis).  The fruit consists of three marble size poisonous seeds in woody capsule.  It is an adaptable large shrub for sun or semi-shade.   It is soil tolerant if soil is well-drained.  This native of Texas and Mexico is not related to the true buckeyes (Aesculus) but to the Soapberries (Sapindus).
