A FAST GROWING EVERGREEN THAT’S SALT TOLERANT
The Dwarf Pitch Apple has also been called “the Autograph Tree.” Why? Its 8” long, thick leaves have a leathery texture and a dark green color – which some people have used to carve messages upon. Of course, we don’t count this as a reason to choose this lovely plant. On summer mornings, you’ll see a bloom of its pink and white flowers.
The Dwarf Pitch Apple is a fast-grower. If you keep it indoors, you’ll need to change its container every so often. And, you must be vigilant about keeping it well pruned (at least once a year during early spring.)
Outdoors, the plant is a great choice for seaside homes in areas where the temperature will not go below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This evergreen is salt-tolerant and will grow wide – making it ideal to use as a privacy hedge.
