This tree I had planted in the Dallas Fort worth area, Then we moved to east Texas. The tree handles the freezing weather and the green leaves lasted durring the winter. I thought the name was Japanese or Chinese / empress / royal or somthing like it. Its fast growing as this tree was about 2.5 years old and was just a sapling

Foliage looks like it could be a Willow of some sort, but I don't know what grows in Texas nor any willows that hold leaves through the winter.

More pictures, especially closer ones of the leaves/stems, would help in the ID.

Mesquite trees wouldn't hold onto their foliage over winter, right?

That distant shot reminds me of the Weeping Podocarpus we had growing at our house when we lived in Daytona Beach but I'm not sure it would survive that far north in Texas.

Did it bloom?
