Comments: This drought tolerant plant can make a hedge or screen in just a few years. It can be used as a specimen or for a background for other plants. It sets very heavy crops of berries and sometimes so heavy that it drains the nutrients from the leaves causing them to yellow. It is easy to grow and is one of the most widely grown.
