Native to Middle East
I know little about them yet. I planted it in a spot that gets morning and mid afternoon sun. Despite the lack of rain it seems to be settling in okay. I’ve been watering heavily this week, I’ll taper that off and we’ll see how it does. This is truly drought tolerant and can handle full sun morning through afternoon, it only receives a bit of shade mid day.
… a few months later after its first pruning…
– remove dead branches
– remove the weaker of any branches rubbing up against another branch
– remove inside branches so all branches get plenty of light
Later as the tree grows we’ll trim down its height, suckers, and branches the grow straight up, they seem to sap the strength from other limbs
It’s been pruned again, it’s happily growing like a weed.
This survived the big freeze with temps down to 9’F. The leaves dropped. About 2 weeks after the temperatures warmed up it put out new buds and is recovering
