PITHECELLOBIUM FLEXICAULE
Texas Ebony

This 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.
