|Medium-sized tree with rounded top and curved branches. Slick bark and golden green, pointed leaves from 2 to 5 inches long distinguish this variety. Flowers bloom in clusters and range in color from cream to green, but caps are tipped with light green just over an inch long. 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.
