Gardeners' Notes:

Positive sonomaheaven On Mar 1, 2012, sonomaheaven from Sebastopol, CA wrote:

Planted this so long ago we forgot about it. When we cut a tree down, this plant took off. It is now about ten feet tall and has a beautiful rounded shape. Needs to be pruned back a few times a year to keep its shape. When it blooms it is a magnet for butterflies and bees. Best yet, we haven't watered it in years. It's taken many drought years and it doesn't seem to stop it. We also planted a dwarf one and it is also beautiful; although it seems to like a regular watering which doesn't seem to bother it. These plants are pest free.
