Bob Flowers
Queen Creek, AZ, USA
8 Sep 2017
(Sept, 2017) I have a 20 year old specimen (1 ft thick trunk for about 3 feet above soil) trimmed as a "lollypop" topiary tree at my house in Mesa, AZ. It blooms in late May, and keeps its leaves until first frost, regrowing by late March. Transplanted seedlings 2 years old are very hardy but need frost protection for another 3 or 4 years. Foliage is very sweetly aromatic, scenting the air for 20 to 30 feet away (by guttation). I have it on the yard's drip irrigation system, plus runoff from the roof of the house. (1200 ft elevation, in Mesa, AZ, south side of house). This is very near the extreme northern edge of it's natural range in Arizona, recorded to be the Awatukee and South Mountains area, south of Phoenix, Arizona.
