Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Tunnelmotor On May 19, 2012, Tunnelmotor from Picture Rocks, AZ wrote:

Grows well in southern Arizona; the trick is adding a thick layer of bark mulch. I've had four under full-sun conditions for about five years. They are drip-watered for at least 2 hours once every 7-10 days in summer. In desert soils, the plants should be watched closely for iron deficiency and treated accordingly. The oriental look of Harbour Dwarf blends surprisingly well with desert plants.
