Recommended for water conservation gardens, this fast-growing evergreen is capable of reaching heights of 80'. Its fragrant, fern-like leaves produce showy flowers during the months of May and June. This tree is multi-stemmed and grows well in groves and on rocky slopes. It needs well-drained soil. If planted along the coast, the tree will be free from trouble.
