Spanish Buckeye Tree

Spanish Buckeye TreeThe Spanish Buckeye (Ungnadia speciosa, Endl.) is a small tree with alternate ash-like leaves and profuse clusters of rose-coloured flowers. It grows on canon sides and along streams in Texas and New Mexico.

Few trees surpass it in beauty when blooming. The fruit is shaped like an inverted top, deeply 3-lobed, and contains three shiny seeds smaller than buckeyes.
