is a great little bonsai subject with small leaves. Texas Ebony forms really
interesting shapes. Many developing zig- zag branches and a crooked trunk. The branches are covered with thorns so caution
should be used when working with the plant. It can also be grown as a spiny medium size tree. Flowers are only seen if
you let it grow. Fruits after the flowers pass for
black beads. In the Mexican culture they are eaten and also used to make decorative
jewelry. A native to Texas and Mexico, if established in the ground as a tree it is very low maintenance and drought
tolerant. On the other hand, if it is used as a bonsa
i in a small pot frequent irrigation will be necessary.
