The Arizona rosewood is one of the toughest evergreen shrubs around. It will take reflected heat or sun and is incredibly drought-tolerant. It makes a lovely screen or informal hedge without needing much maintenance or supplemental water.
The slender, deep green leaves look very similar to Oleander, making this native shrub a non-toxic alternative that offers less litter and better cold-hardiness. Creamy white flower clusters attract butterflies in springtime, and age to ornamental tan or reddish-brown seed pods that attract birds through the summer. Prune selectively at an early age to train as a small tree, or let it grow naturally as a large, dense shrub.
