Eve's Necklace

Eve's Necklace


Description: Eve's Necklace is a graceful tree with a rounded crown and pendulous branches. It typically grows to heights of 15 to 30 feet (4.5 to 9 meters) and spreads of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) at maturity. The tree features compound leaves that are composed of several small, oval leaflets arranged alternately along the stem. In spring, fragrant clusters of pink to purple flowers appear, giving way to long, dark brown seed pods in the summer and fall. These seed pods are constricted between the seeds, resembling a string of beads, hence the common name "Eve's Necklace."

Best Growing Zones: Eve's Necklace is well-suited to USDA hardiness zones 7 through 9. It thrives in warm, temperate climates with mild winters and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. While it is native to Texas and Oklahoma, it can also be grown in other regions with similar climates and soil conditions.

Soil Requirements: Eve's Necklace prefers well-drained soil and is tolerant of a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or rocky soil. It can tolerate occasional drought but benefits from regular watering, especially during dry periods. However, it is also relatively tolerant of dry conditions once established.

Maintenance: Eve's Necklace is a low-maintenance tree. It requires minimal pruning but can be shaped or thinned as needed to maintain a strong and attractive form. Pruning is best done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. The tree is relatively pest and disease resistant but may occasionally be affected by issues such as scale insects or leaf spot diseases. These problems can usually be managed with proper cultural practices.

Landscape Use: Eve's Necklace is valued for its attractive foliage, fragrant flowers, and ornamental seed pods. It is commonly used as a specimen tree or focal point in gardens, parks, and landscapes. It can also be planted along streets, driveways, or property boundaries, where its graceful form and pendulous branches add visual interest. Additionally, it provides habitat and food for wildlife, making it a valuable component of wildlife gardens and naturalized areas.
