Neutral gooley On Oct 2, 2006, gooley from Hawthorne, FL (Zone 8b) wrote:

My oldish copy of the Sunset Western Garden Book lists this as an attractive ornamental shrub for dry areas not prone to frost or poor drainage, tolerant of poor soils, but it seems that a 1993 DEA ruling effectively makes it illegal in the US. Australia and Britain: seems to be okay to own. Probably too cold where I am (zone 8b, north Florida), legal or not.
