Xylosma, Shiny

Shiny Xylosma is sometimes listed as Xylosma senticosa.  It is an attractive heat and drought tolerant evergreen shrub with glossy leaves about 3" long and 1" wide.  It is much grown in California and the Southwest as a hedge, screen planting, or small tree.  The greenish yellow flowers are not conspicuous but fragrant.  This plant is uncommon in southeastern U.S. landscapes but has done very well here in our area.  It should have a sunny or slightly shaded area with good soil and good drainage.  This plant is native to eastern Asia.
