Mountain laurel and agarita

The agarita across the street is in bloom!
And our neighbor's mountain laurel is blooming (ours is too young to bloom, I guess).

I was doing some research on propagation of mountain laurel yesterday and found this interesting article.

Texas Mountain Laurel, Sophora secundiflora
by Bob Harms

A quote from the article:
"Mountain laurel is a slow grower, and it may be years before flowers are produced. In our hill-country environment it has taken at least 10 years for untended plants started from seed to bloom."

Think I may start some this year and see if it works!

Yes, I believe that about the slow-growing and blooming part! We found ours in the adjoining lot which we dubbed The Meadow. It was a volunteer that I was excited to find. So it's six-plus years old at least. But it IS growing. Keep me posted on your seed project!
