(aka: A. m. A1SA-053) We saw this amazing species growing along a wooded creek at 3100' above the South African town of Glen Avon on our 2005 expedition. The 5' long branches of soft green foliage were truly stunning. We expect there is a possibility of winter hardiness from Zone 8 south, and hopefully, a bit colder.
