Comments: This medium sized evergreen tree has aromatic, leathery leaves. It is grown in a very limited area of zones 10 and 11. Also grown as an indoor plant in areas with freezing temperatures. Makes a nice evergreen in conservatory spaces and other large glassed enclosed spaces where the temperature is controlled.
