|A bushy tree with blue green leave that resemble 8 inch ribbons and small white flowers. Its distinguishing, tiny seed capsules grow in small clusters and are no larger than a match head. Popular in Arizona, these trees are drought tolerant and do not suffer from wind breakage. The foliage of nearly all species has a strong pungent odor similar to menthol. Well drained soil is preferable. Trees do very well planted from seed. Plant seeds in spring or summer keep shaded and water sparingly until 2 to 3 inches high.
