    Just a lovely small tree. It blooms off & on all year long. This tree is never still or silent. The bees are always humming in its flowers and butterflies dancing from branch to branch providing constant movement even on the most still of days. Good xeri plant and excellent accent tree. Terrific for small yards or limited spaces. Will take a hit from unseasonable winters so it's best to place it in a protected location.
