One of my favorite blooming native Texas shrubs! Every fall, the flowers attract bees and butterflies, without fail. Although primarily fall-blooming, the shrubs sometimes can start blooming in summer under favorable conditions. The plants do better when they are in fairly sunny areas, although they also do well in partly sunny areas. This species is a xeriscape plant, although it blooms better if watered on a fairly regular basis, especially during dry spells. When the plant is in bloom, the fragrance can waft over the yard and is pleasant, but not overpowering at all. The white flowers are lovely, often attracting butterflies that are flying through in the fall. They can be cut back after bloom is over, to keep them more compact. Fresh seed is good for germination and cuttings also work well.
