Acacia farnesiana – Huisache

Here’s a slight change of pace – a picture of the Huisache tree in the back yard following Monday night”s thunderstorms in Central Texas.  Huisache is actually  a member of the Pea family, and is a multi-trunked tree or small shrub. This one is perhaps a dozen years old and has about a half-dozen trunks. Here two trunks have been torn loose at the base and fallen across the fence, taking out several slats and the bird feeder.  C’est la vie.

Huisache - Acacia farnesiana

Blooms from January through April – this year it has only started showing some color from March. Has thorns, which make it slightly less desireable than Goldenball Leadtree.
