We have several of these plants growing on an 'island' in our back yard. They grow slowly, but once they take hold...they become a loyal part of their environment. The first one I bought I used as a part of a Christmas display instead of a tree...so now, I always think of Christmas when I see one. The architectural structure is very attractive and the coloring can provide subtle contrast to a setting. Very easy to care for!
