|Design Ideas||A beautiful accent tree that easily fits into average beds and borders. Use as a visual screen along property lines to block neighbors without losing much light or air circulation. A stunning single specimen in bloom and under night lighting. Perfect to augment dry xeriscape plantings in open beds with luxurios looks.|
