caesalpinia pulcherrima – Red Bird of Paradise flowering bushes; also known as Pride of Barbados. Thrives in full sun; Could be lovely in front of house to cover hose, etc. Perhaps plant agave in front.
Texas Lilac ~ Vitex Blooms all summer long. Can be grown as a shrub but looks better trimmed as a tree (like the photo). After blooming, shear back (never more than of the plant) and it will rebloom and grow vigorously! Love this tree
