Texas mountain laurel is an attractive spring-flowering large shrub or small tree with glossy, evergreen leaves and beautiful purple wisteria-like blooms smelling of grape Kool-aid. It needs good drainage. 

Texas mountain laurel usually reaches 6 to 12 feet, which fits well in most urban landscapes. It is usually multi-trunked. It is generally disease and pest-free, and tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils. Poor drainage, fertilization or overwatering may result in rapid growth which in turn will create week branches unable to support themselves. It should not be fertilized and once established does not need to be irrigated.
