|The reduced stature of this multi-branched shrub or small tree is perfectly scaled for smaller residential gardens. Feature in large containers as a patio or entry focal point. Good disease resistance ensures attractive foliage and abundant flowering with little care, making it well suited for mass planting in large-scale beds or as an informal hedge. Plant near pathways where the handsome, exfoliating trunk can lend interesting texture and appeal, especially during the dormant winter months.
|California Lilac (Ceanothus); Lilyturf (Liriope); False Heather (Cuphea); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis)
|Thrives in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed in early spring. Thin young trees late winter to early spring; leave 3 to 7 main trunks or canopy branches. Remove suckers from the base of older trees.
