If you are looking for a Texas-tough large shrub or small tree for your garden, look no further. Mexican Buckeye dazzles with pink flowers in the spring, showy displays of yellow leaves in the fall, and ornamental seed pods that persist into the winter. If all of that is not enough, it is drought tolerant, resistant to cotton root rot, and able to adapt to sun or shade. Bees are attracted to the flowers, which have a very pleasant scent.
