There are many desert dwellers who will tell you that the most attractive tree you can grow here is the Texas Ebony. It features a twisted but picturesque canopy of dense dark-green foliage, and dons fragrant cream to yellow flower puffs in early summer and sometimes again in fall.
Distinctive, thorny, zig-zagging branches create a wild appearance in youth, but older trees have a more symmetrical silhouette. If left unpruned, Texas Ebony remains shrubby, and when planted in mass, it will make a very effective barrier or privacy screen. As a tree, it makes a lovely specimen or accent, and provides a safe place for desert birds to build their homes.
