Nikoshakar Perhaps with the advent of these new government tested forage foods and potential ornamental use, Palo Blanco will become a domesticated crop, leaving the natural protected forests to recover from past human destruction. Two of these species, the Palo Blanco and Lysiloma divaricatum or the Mauto, a tree very similar to Sivaricatum Blanco, except with gray bark, its ability to grow in higher elevations; exist here in Baja California Sur.

Still doing my research, but this is a new clasification that happened or is the same tree? And is known to sprout from seed with out much effort when water is available. It is a rich green soft foliage in the harshest conditions. The wood structure is very flexible and resistant to breakage.

A downside is the seed pods that some find unattractive and a short winter leaf drop. It will also drop foliage like texas sage with rainy periods.

The preying mantis love for their ootheca sack of babies. This thrills me to no end. Those are great bugs to have around and very friendly.

Although, I do hope my hummingbirds are cautious. They frequent the cactus flowers nearby. I am very grateful to have these plants arrive in the middle of what is to be a long drought. I welcome their fluttery beauty and other-worldly looking blossoms.

The leaves are fabulous and soft and it leaves a beautiful layer of mulch behind that enhances my front yard. I live in an association and have received numerous compliments. Scratching the bark with my keys shows a brown inner layer that is dry to the touch.

I believe this tree is officially dead. I do see some sapplings growing at the base of the tree but only a few leaves at best and it appears to originate from the root area of the tree not the tree itself.

Any thoughts on whether I should let the leaves turn into a shrub or should I pull it out and tr The freeze really only killed two plants my mexican lime tree and I believe this one as well. Any thoughts? It is now a small tree with a caliper of about 3 inches with an umbrella type top end. Some of the leaves appear to be golden brown at this time.. March 19th.
