At this time my Cocculus laurifolius
is small, but a friend of mine has a large one in the shape of a tree that has been there for 30 plus years. Its is a beautiful tree. They grow well in Phoenix, Arizona. Little maintanance after you get it shaped. Very little litter. Very nice shade tree. Prune for fine or denser shade.

This plant is used as hedges in certain areas of the Jacksonville (Florida) Zoo & Gardens (Zone 8b/9a). The bright green, glossy slender leaves create a nice effect.
