Has anyone here tried growing this?I found it a half price sale in a garden centre sale. Its about 3 foot tall and has a nice naturally twisted shape and very small leaf
Looks as if it could make a nice Mame or shohin.
Does anyone advice on this please and will it root from cuttings ? I think Im going to be pruning a lot off it!!
Hopefully some of you Kiwis might be able to advise on this?!! How hardy is it?278244278245

I think you should take that full pic with the reduced sign covered.

Then reduce it and take another picture with the reduced seen.

It's not reduced yet.

Feels funny.

Looks fun.

Its a neat little semi evergreen from New Zealand. It is rated at zone 7A by some and 8A by others. Not an easy plant to find in garden centers here.

Thanks to everyone! The English garden centre where I bought it had it outdoors, but I suspect its an Italian import! I will keep it in an unheated conservatory for winter then outside for the summer.
If any New Zealanders out there who know and grow this plant in its native home I would be grateful for any more info- how big and fast growing is it and can I grow it from cuttings?!
