Texas mountain laurel is a Texas native evergreen with gorgeous, fragrant, wisteria-like blooms in the spring. In favorable conditions, it grows to be a large shrub or a small tree. Poor drainage, fertilization or overwatering may result in rapid growth which in turn will create weak branches that are unable to support themselves.

Genista caterpillars might present a problem when the plant is young. Once more mature and established they usually cause just cosmetic damage, unless the plant is already stressed by other factors. Texas mountain laurel is otherwise a low-maintenance plant that is not bothered by heat or drought.
