This is dense. Its leaves are leathery, have stayed green (NONE have turned yellow and fallen) they feel slightly hairy. the leaf stems are thick but concave. its a year old, no flowers.. just leaves. It appears to start new plant suckers. the leaves are on a long stem, but theres so many its hard to see the main stem. they dont have any scent really. ive neglected the hell out of them. the seed was sent to me. its growing in 9a texas clay based garden. with new wood based mulchy garden mix.
