I read that a California experimental station, back when the  
government funded them, grew 10,000 seedlings of a shrub from  
somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, and the ones that survived and  
thrived are now some of the commonest landscaping plants in  
California.  I can't remember the genus - maybe something like
