We have several Texas Mountain Laurel trees in our yard. They bloom with a purple bloom for about one month every year. But we have a freaky one that blooms white. I have asked at every nursery for several years, and no one has ever seen one with white blooms.
Here is a typical bloom on one of the other trees.
But this morning I notices something even more strange. Low on the tree, on a different major branch from the white blooms, a purple blooms is popping out. Freaky squared. Hopefully I can get a picture that shows both color blooms on the same tree.
After posting these pictures, I started Googling for pictures of other white Texas Mountain Laurel trees. I found a site that described how to harvest the seeds of Mountain Laurel trees, so I went out and grabbed all of the seed pods that threw on the ground after I cut them off last week. After I prep the seeds, I am going to plant some freaky tree seeds elsewhere in the yard.
