The spike-like clusters (racemes) of tiny fragrant white flowers of Berlandier's Fiddlewood attract a whole host of pollinators including butterflies large and small, bees, and many other beneficials. Pollinated flowers are followed by long clusters of attractive orange berries that mature to black and are utilized by a variety of birds and mammals. This is an adaptable South Texas native that develops into a medium to large deciduous shrub to small tree.
Berlandier's Fiddlewood is drought resistant once well-established. The wood of this and other Citharexylum species have been used to make musical instruments as the name suggests. This easy landscape or garden shrub is busy with pollinators anytime that it is flower which may be from mid-winter through summer. It commonly displays both flowers and fruit at the same time.
