I saw a Catalina Ironwood at a local nursery last October. I wasn't sure at the time, but now think it might be a good choice for my "kinda out of sight driveway strip that is too big to just ignore" space. I think it is about 25X40 with no structures nearby except a fence.
I orginally was going to go with an Afterdark agonis(or 2)as the tree, but after some of our very chilly nights, I think I'd lose them.
Any thoughts on companion, low water, easy to maintain, plantings to round out the space?
Shrubs? Grasses? Speaking of which, is it just me or does the foliage of the ironwood kinda look like...well, you know. :)
