Xylosma is a very attractive shrub with bright green shiny leaves that will grow in part to full sun. Frequently planted as a hedge or screen, this hardy evergreen thrives in desert heat and will grow in light open shade to full sun. Xylosma makes a beautiful small tree up to around twenty feet if allowed. It takes a few years for the trunk to develop strength to support a full head of growth, so thin growth as the tree grows. Plant Xylosma ensuring good drainage. If soil is very rocky, add compost around root ball to give the dirt substance. Water very deeply to encourage deep roots.
UnKillableI'll tell you what, i've had a few of these planted for 2 years now and pay little to no attention to them. They look as good as they did when I planted. Pretty impressive.
