Interesting Facts

Butterflies and other insects have their skeleton on the outside of their body. This protective shell is called an exoskeleton and it conserves water in the insect body while helping to keep it safe from injury.



This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner-city environment.
