Hi laurengregor01, you'll read in the introduction that many are native to the Canary Islands, but there are other regions of North Africa they hail from as well.

I haven't found the knack for trimming my "zwartkop", when I bought it was like a full little bush, now it tends to be very leggy. Anyone with tips? Do I bite the bullet and trim all the branches back at one time? And how often and time of year?

Ic29: I would make sure you have it in full sun. Have you been fertilizing? Do you have a photo?
