Our Western Hop Tree is about three years old now and is looking good, getting ready to produce its many fragrant cream-colored flowers. They will be set off beautifully against its glossy deep green broad leaves. The plant is in the citrus family, and it produces light green fruits, which are said to be “acid” and “tonic” (I have not tested this). Las Pilitas calls its look “prehistoric woodland.”
