Many people in Paradise Valley have been removing them in favor of other plants lately. Look around. The oleander craze is over.

We've lived here since 2006 and they were mature when we moved in. There have been at least 3 of those severe frost cycles.

What's your guys' take on Fruitless Olive trees? Just bought a nice 48" box tree today in a very unlikely way for me - with no previous research.

We actually went in looking for an Ironwood, but the size and the super slow growth (as we were told) lead us to the Fruitless Olive, which has a very similar look.

This is going in an interior courtyard at our new house, so needed something that doesnt grow very big and also doesnt have huge or invasive roots - hopefully the Fruitless Olive fits the bill.
