Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral smiln32 On Aug 28, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Slow-growing upright tree to 25 feet tall by 15 feet wide with weeping branches and silvery blue-gray narrow 2-3 inch long leaves. Small globular pale yellow flowers are rarely seen. This attractive tree is bushy and full when young and often takes on interesting ghostly shape with age. Drought resistant.

Neutral palmbob On Dec 25, 2003, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Another drought tolerant tree excellent for xeriscaping. This has a weeping willow-like habit with steel-grey leaves drooping to the ground. It does pretty well in heavier soils so is an excellent plant for many landscapes here in So Cal where our soils have so much clay. The flowers are lemon-yellow and pretty insignificant. This is an east Australian native.
