They are lovely,unfortunately 2 of us here are allergic to them.We had 2 red ones as street trees, until we found out what was making us miserable. :twisted:Now I have a lavender hedge.
Doesn't mean I can't admire them from afar,they do make good cut flowers too!
The glory of the garden: hands in the dirt,
head in the sun,heart with nature.
To nurture a garden is to feed
not just the body ,but the soul.
