Here are a few pics of my lovely Texas Mountain Laurel.
Mine still looks like a little shrub, but hopefully some day it will be a tree.
The pretty purple blooms have a distinct grape fragrance and then turn to seed pods. I have actually gotten some of the seeds to germinate, but the plant died after I planted it. I think I’ll try again. It is a little bit of a project, but if anyone wants to try it, I’ll be glad to send you a seed or two.
