Oh yes! Beautiful buds, lovely tiny leaves and very easy to bring up into a nice shape!

It is one of the sturdiest plants I ever had.. very resistant even in extreme conditions, such as baking hot sun, wind, rain (downpours!) and cold. If mine get a bit "under the weather" looking, I prune them back a bit (or a lot if I have to) and there they are, back in shape in no time!

Extremely decorative!
