Mexican Buckeye (Ugnadia speciosa)
This multi-trunked small tree rewards you with bright pink flowers in early Spring, followed by interesting three-seeded capsules. Mexican Buckeye is extremely tough, fast growing and needs little water. It adapts to a variety of soil conditions and thrives in full sun to part shade situations. It makes an excellent understory tree for shady yards. Dependable Fall color is a clear golden yellow.
Mexican Buckeye is very deer resistant but young buds may be sampled.
