This year I have two Starburst plants and this week they are putting on a show. The Starburt is a great plant. It is technically a shrub but it looks like a small tree. It is low maintenance and the leaf keep a great color year around, olive green on top and purple on the bottom. This time of the year is all about the spectacular white flowers that resemble stars.
I have not been able to find out where this plant is from, but I know is not native to Florida it does well in our zone 10a and 10b.
The only problem with this plant is that it sends up suckers that can be a nuisance some times, that is how I ended up with two plants this year.
