I have more scars from trimming this thing. I live in terror than some kid will get tangled in those thorns...and be scarred for life...or worse!. About every 4 months, we take out about half...and like an evil Hydra it comes back huger than ever!
is coming down!
Before you assume I am have lost my tree hugging roots, do NOT assume. It is just that that thing is not huggable!.
I am thinking a lovely Jacaranda to replace it. Desert, low water use...and Fluffy Purple Flowers can't hurt anyone! And in true desert fashion, a Tombstone Rose to cover and cool the house wall!
