Close up of leaflets on plant growing in Escondido California (zone 9b).
somewhat yellowy specimen in Santa Barbara, California. These plants tend to be a bit touchy in these warmer climates.
Reputed to grow very slowly. True for first three years, but after that this tree really began to take off.
I live in evergreen country, but have never seen an evergreen tree with better foliage texture
