Texas Kidneywood (E. texana) matures to a height of 6 to 12 feet with spreads of 6 to 9 feet in irrigated plantings. This specie also has no thorns. Flowers are produced in abundance with adequate irrigation. White, 3 to 4 inch flower spikes are found at branch terminals from April to November. Trees will shed leaves when drought stressed but rapidly re-leaf when water is available. The tree has been naturalized in some, but not all, landscape settings.

Both Eysenhardtia trees provide lush green, lacy canopies, are thornless and are ideal for patios, entry courts, as a screen planting. They can also be mixed with more deciduous materials to provide color and texture during the winter months. Fragrant flowers and leaves are an added benefit that Kidneywoods bring to desert landscapes.
