Anacua is a Texas native tree whose range is the southern half of the state. Its flowers are as fragrant as they are pretty. In a couple of months they will be followed by golden-orange berries. You can expect your anacua tree to bloom 2-3 times each year. I had a multi-trunked one whose trunks bloomed a few weeks apart one year. Talk about your inner struggle!
