Texas Ebony, scientifically known as Ebenopsis ebano, is a distinctive and resilient tree native to the arid regions of southwestern North America, including Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. This small to medium-sized deciduous tree is valued for its attractive appearance and ability to thrive in challenging environments.
Known for its dense, dark green foliage and irregular, spreading canopy, the Texas Ebony provides ample shade and makes an excellent ornamental addition to landscapes. Its bark is dark and rough, adding to its visual interest. In late spring and early summer, the tree produces fragrant, creamy-white flowers, followed by elongated seed pods.
