Evelyn Alemanni's Top Plant Recommendation: Shrubs and Small Trees for Southern California.
Beautiful bell shaped flowers give off the most wonderful fragrance at dusk. Can be pruned into a shrub or tree. Disease resistant, nothing eats it.
Easy to grow, easy to propagate. Can be pruned as tree or shrub, and makes a great cut flowers. Lots of color options from white to deep purple.
Can be pruned as tree or shrub, great clusters of yellow, tropical looking flowers. Great cut flowers. Comes in bright yellow and "buttercream".
Great for bouquets. Light, airy look of shrub allows light to come through to other plants.
I like the variegated gold and green variety. The branches can be incorporated into bouquets.
Easy to grow, nothing bothers it. Great filler for bouquets, comes in white, pink, red, and rose.
