A popular small tree in my state of Texas with many names: Texas Mountain Laurel, Mescal Bean, Frigolito, Frijollito, Frijolillo, Coral Bean, Big-drunk Bean, Colorin and Sophora secundiflora. What’s not to love about this sweetheart tree whose blooms remind me of lilacs from my state of origin, Wisconsin!
