Gardeners' Notes:

I bought it as a var. Meyer's lemon but I've since learned it is a Eureka lemon. What a wonderful tree this is. Fragrant as all get out and a good producer right from the start. I had two, but lost one to excessive moisture; actually, an undetected pipe leak. Dying tree is what clued us to the problem. Mine is planted inground, full sun, and I trim in early spring, hoping to maintain it no taller than 10ft.

The lemons are merely frosting on the cake of this beautiful plant - everything you expect from citrus - wonderfully scented blooms and evergreen leaves, but the variegation of the leaves is gorgeous as well.
