Yellow Butterfly Vine

Mascagnia macroptera a can be an evergreen vine for Central Texas if planted with a South or South-east exposure with protection from the winter winds. Well established plants will return from their roots the following spring if bit by a cold winter.

Can get 15+ tall and will take some shade. More sun more blooms. Named for its seed pods that are a butterfly shape. These seed pods will turn brown and paper-like. Crafters love the possibilities.
