Mastic Tree (Pistacia lentiscus). This Mediterraneannative grows naturally as a large shrub but can be pruned into a fine small tree. It grows slowly to 20 ft or so tall and as wide, is frost hardy and drought tolerant. The glossy, dense foliage is evergreen and aromatic and is sometimes used in floral arrangements. Yes, leaves do fall off, but are fairly innocent as far as leaves go.
Not the best photo of Pistacia lentiscus - the mastic tree - but shows the texture of the foliage; it also sports beautiful berries varying from white to pale flesh-pink through corals, reds and finally black. It is completely bomb-proof and can be pruned or allowed to grow into a large shrub, hedge or small tree.
Blue Fortune Hyssop (Agastache 'Blue Fortune') Spikes of small lavender-blue tubular flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Aromatic foliage has a peppermint-lemon scent when brushed against or crushed. Use in patio containers or mixed perennial plantings. Herbaceous
