Plant of the Week – Texas Mountain Laurel

Posted on March, 15

Texas Mountain Laurel is a beautiful small tree or large shrub native to Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. It is loved for its small ornamental size and attractive clusters of purple blooms in spring that smell just like grape jelly. It’s a beautiful xeriscape plant that will attract plenty of pollinators when in bloom. Plus, it’s an evergreen, bringing lush leafy green beauty to your landscape year-round when most other plants are dormant. Once established, the Texas Mountain Laurel is very heat and drought-tolerant, and requires little maintenance beyond occasional pruning if desired.
