Diospyrus texana

Texas Persimmon! A small, multi-trunked tree with striking silver-gray exfoliating bark that is reminiscent of an eucalyptus. The dense mounding silouette takes the abstracted form of a mushroom. The small, thick, semi-evergreen foliage is a rich forest green. Trees come in two sexes with the female bearing sweet flavored 3/4 in. black fruits, which are a favorite for wildlife and young children. This Texas endemic is exceedingly tolerant of drought and alkaline soils. An excellent species for bonsai.
