A beautiful tree with darker bark and vigorous growth. Perfect canopy effect if trimmed and kept neat. Mine happens to be by our pool and we suffer in Phoenix from Jan March while the fine blades and stalks fall. Around June flowers will arrive then followed with a bean drop. Yes these are messy trees but take very little water and are indestructible.
