Plant of the week 3.28 – 4.1 ~ Xylsoma
Plant of the week 3.28 – 4.1 ~ Xylsoma ~ Xylsoma is an evergreen shrub with low water requirements which thrives in full sun to partial shade. Xylsoma is hard pruned in winter months to encourage new growth, maintain a manageable height, and reduce pruning requirements during the growing season. Its low water requirements get a thumbs up for water wise landscapes and earns a drought tolerant distinction. They have been popular in our landscapes for decades, make good hedges, and have a natural, free flowing growth habit which is great for our Bay Friendly natural pruning techniques. Xylosma will put on a quick spring growth and is a good candidate for PGR (plant growth regulator) to reduce labor hours and green waste requirements.
