Sophora secundiflora

Texas Mountain Laurel

Texas Mountainlaurel is no relation to the eastern Mountainlaurel (Kalmia).  It is a legume and forms an evergreen shrub or small tree with glossy foliage and clusters of fragrant purple flowers followed by seed pods with bright red seeds (which are poisonous).  It requires a well-drained alkaline or neutral soil and is a popular landscape plant in Texas and the Southwest.  It is successful in the warmer sections of the Southeast if properly sited in a sunny well-drained site.  It is usually slow-growing but well worth having and rarely available from nurseries outside it's native range.
