A bit slow to start but when they do....lookout! They grow fast and beautifully. Fabulous for xeri yards and full, unrelenting sun. Very tough plants. Have had no trouble with pests or disease. I LOVE them!!!!!!!

One of the plants (if not the most common plant) associated with Bonsai. It is a very easy to maintain Bonasi. I suspect it needs the seasonal change of winter to thrive although I have never attempted to grow it in southern climates.
