Friends of ours have given us a Carrotwood tree. Its about 5 feet high, and makes a good shade tree, doesn't drop a lot of leaves, and we could use it on the west side of our house, to shade us from the afternoon sun.
But I looked it up, and I find it is an exotic and harmful to the Florida ecosystem. So now, what to do?
Our friends come over to our house a good bit, and they will see if we don't plant it. They know that it's an exotic, however.
I think we are going to give it back to them.
