I've been doing some research on this species and I'd really like to try it, but I've read that it (and its various varieties and cultivars) can reach 6-8' in height.
Is there anyone here with experience growing these? If so, are the maximum height estimates spot-on or worse case scenario? Is it possible to tip-pinch or prune for lower bushiness, or will that ruin the plant's shape and reduce flowering?
I've seen mention of hybrids and low-growing cultivars, but none so far have mentioned if these other plants have the same strongly aromatic gum as the original.
Thanks for any help!
