    @alanmorris400  ... and also very toxic if you burn the cuttings.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    Depends where you are, what soil you have, how sheltered you are.

    I've seen it grown in the central reservation in Italian motorways and as hedging on Ile de Noirmoutier but it wouldn't have cope with winters in my Belgian garden.   Having seen it grown as a municipal and motorway planting in Italy, plus the fact that it is poisonous, I wouldn't plant it here.
