Goldenball Leadtree

Perfect golden puffs against a bright blue sky. Leucaena retusa supposedly will provide this show after every rain. Native to the poor limestone soils of Mexico through Texas and New Mexico, this multi-trunked tree (about 12-20' tall) is a great plant for the xeriscaped yard as it needs only rainfall.
