T for Texas Ebony

Here’s one of our bonsai species from the legume or bean family. As the name implies, it’s mostly found in Texas, but you’ll also locate them in Mexico. Such rare distribution is what makes the tree valuable as a bonsai, as you won’t really find them anywhere else unless someone has made extra effort to export them.

The leaves on the Texas Ebony bonsai are dark green while the seed pods are long and slightly curved. If you have experience with legume trees, it should be easy for you to germinate the seeds or take some cuttings. You’ll also love the yellow flowers that appear in the foliage before the beans appear. 

When I reached the letter T in this alphabetical list of bonsai trees, I immediately thought of Texas Ebony. I wrote a care guide for it some time back, and that was the first time I’d come across one. It really struck me with how beautiful it is, but it also amazed me how few sites were writing about it. I made it my mission to make it more well-known. Now you can know about it too.
