Is there anything else I should be doing for Texas Mountain Laurel besides watering a few times a week?

Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora) is new to me, but it looks like a beautiful plant!

Do the flowers really smell like grape Kool Aid? If so, that would be wonderful. From what I have read about it, I wonder if you are watering too frequently and too much. You should probably check in with your local extension agent or garden center for advice on watering. You may find out that it needs to be given a deep watering once a week or so until established.

Thanks for writing!
