As I take a look at the young Vauquelinia californica (Arizona rosewood) this month, the most noticeable change is simply the lengthening of the new growth. Branches are reaching upwards as it puts on a little more height. This is all to the good as it has quite a ways to go before giving substantial shade to the border. But for all that, it is already providing a little shelter to nearby plants.
I can't say much has changed with the Arizona Rosewood tree since last month. I did clip the growth coming from the base, as well as a branch on the south side of the trunk. This is to keep it more in the mode of a small tree, eventually supplying some shade to nearby plantings.
After failing miserably to keep up with the tree following meme last year, I am once more setting out to choose and follow a tree month by month with the theme hosted by Squirrelbasket. This time the tree selected is a resident of my own garden.
