It is native to South America, from Peru and Bolivia to Argentina. Myriocarpa stipitata is an evergreen shrub or small tree that makes an attractive addition to a landscape. It grows to an average height of 5-10 ft when grown as a shrub, and 10-20 ft when grown as a small tree. With its long, thin leaves, this plant has a very graceful, elegant appearance.

The plant appreciates a warm, sunny spot with plenty of sun for most of the day, however, it can tolerate some shade, such as in an area that receives morning sunlight but some shade in the afternoon. It requires regular watering, especially during hot, dry periods.

Myriocarpa stipitata is winter-hardy in USDA zones 9 to 11, and is especially suited to container growing. It needs a pot that is deep enough to accommodate its long roots. In cold regions, the container should be brought indoors in fall before the first frost and should be kept in a cool room with indirect sunlight. Regular watering should be maintained, with the soil being allowed to dry out partially in between each watering.

Overall, Myriocarpa stipitata is a great choice for warm climates and those who want to add an eye-catching and graceful element to their garden.
