    mexican elder treeMexican Elder Tree Click photo for larger image - Mexican Elder trees or Sambacus Mexicana. Are good small ornamental shade trees. Once established they are somewhat drought tolerant.

    They love the spring and fall seasons this is when they look their best. The hot mid summer southwestern heat will strees alot of folks in this part of the country, including this very interesting tree.

    Placing them in an area where they get shade from the afternoon sun will help. It is best to prune dead limbs in early spring this will help with better looks througout the summer months. They have light yellow blooms near the crown of the tree not very showy but some good color.



    This tree will reach height of about 20ft. tall and about 15ft wide. We recommend extra watering and fertilizing during mid summer.

    Color Your World Guzman's Garden Centers will usually have the Mexican Elder and the Weeping Willow in stock during the spring, summer and fall months.
