Comments: Seen it growing in zone 8 for over 40 years with little cold damage and have never seen it flower or fruit. The foliage is leathery and dark blue green. Excellent upright small tree or large shrub for the deep South. It is a very effective specimen plant, particularly when grown in a large container.
