Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Particle_E On Mar 11, 2005, Particle_E wrote:

Lovely plants with abundant flowers & a great deal of pollen. Bark can be good, aslong as it doesnt fall on you, same goes for branches. Good for mulch, sheds bark once a year, looses leaves all year round.
Can flower in native environments mid/late spring-summer.
