For the center of the circle next to the road. Garrya elliptica (Coast Silktassel) What I like most is the gnarly look of the trunks. The center of the circle is also the middle of the width of the yard and I like the look of something gnarly being centered like that. The tassels would be striking in winter. On another page the architect says that this is a shrub not a tree but that the branches can be trained into a tree shape. I'm not sure what that involves but it sounds like too much work for me. I wonder what it looks like when it just grows naturally? Will this work in FL.: Coast Silktassel Botanical name: Garrya elliptica Common names: Coast silktassel, silk tassel bush, quinine bush, wavyleaf silktassel Origin: Native to coastal ranges of California and southern Oregon USDA zone: 8; hardy to 10 degrees Fahrenheit (find your zone) Water requirement: Moderate to light Light requirement: Full sun to light shade in hotter climates Mature size: 10 to 20 feet tall and wide Benefits and tolerances: Fairly drought tolerant; rabbits and deer usually ignore it; the fruit attracts birds; the flowers attract bees; tolerates urban and coastal conditions Seasonal interest: Evergreen; flowers in winter When to plant: Plant seedlings in late spring or early summer, after the last frost.
