I have this tree in my front yard...i absolutely love it..just have to trim the bottom branches out as it grows because it will grow down like a bush if you dont. Texas Lilac (Vitex). They are hardy, drought tolerant, and the butterflies & bees love them.
Pinyon pine is popular as a drought tolerant tree. It is native to the Southwest, has edible nuts, and has a pleasant smell when burned. It can grow well in areas of 9-15 inches of rain yearly, and of course will quickly become established with the Waterboxx. To bear nuts, two or more pinyon pines will need to be planted near one another. The tree grows 20-40 feet at maturity.
