Amazing, looks something like icing sugar flowers.

Exactly. The shrub is loaded with flowers. In the true tropics this plant becomes a large tree to more than 50ft/16m tall. Here in subtropical San Diego it only grows to about 20ft/6m tall.

Wow, 16m, I repeat - Amazing! Thanks for the pic and learning - can I copy this to pinterest?? Would you mind?

I'm not too familiar with Pinterest (never heard of it until now). From what I just read it's a pinboard.

Yes, you can copy it to Pinterest. :>)

Yes, it is a place to keep things you want to remember or want to do in the future, ideas, things like that, but the pin is linked back to this. I pin most of my pics on succulents there as well.
