Couldn't get the lint to 'copy & paste' so holpefulliy I've copied it correctly. Generic name is Halesia diptera.

It says that it needs moist soil and suffers during droughts. I don't think I would plant a tree with those requirements in Texas and with all the water restrictions we have. There's lots of other more drought tolerant trees out there.
