Madrone Flowers


Ericaceae Arbutus xalapensis

One of the most beautiful trees of the Texas Hill Country and Trans-Pecos. Growing to about 40 feet, the green leaves cling to the tree all winter falling when the new ones appear in the spring.  The beautiful white flowers come out in March - April and red berries persist in the fall and early winter.  The bark peels off the trunk which may be off white, pink or red.  It thrives in well drained alkaline soil. Standing water will kill this tree.  Read instructions before choosing a site and planting this tree.
