This is the wild bush I almost cut back to a nub. It is 25 feet up a 50 foot Eucalyptus tree. I was going to cut it down because I thought it was one of the runners from the neighbor’s invasive Pepper tree. Before the rains I listened to the weather man who said, “You might think about putting fertilizer out before it rains. So I did and I was rewarded with these beauties.
