Mine is not as tall yet...maybe next year. I love the carpet of red when the blooms fall to the ground.

They can grow much taller. I think they're keeping these shrubs as a hedge.

I don't like the carpet of red! lol! My neighbor has a large tree bordering my yard...the stamens are all around my tent area where my shade plants are located. It drives me nuts!

It's commonly used throughout California as a hedge because it never needs to be watered.
