Paraguay Nightshade

I have three of these in my yard and they are pretty quirky. If you don't keep them pruned back, they get really sparse in the middle and look spindly. These are drought resistant and are in a corner with no real irrigation. I've found it likes a spray here and there maybe twice a week. Very fast growing, I have to keep pruning every week to keep it compact, flowering and full in the center.
