He's cute and he likes plants. How's that for perfect?

Word from showbizspy.com this week is that Zac Efron surprised sweetheart Vanessa Hudgens by planting orange trees in her Los Angeles backyard while she was away filming in Canada. The gesture was "Zac’s way of telling her that he wanted to put the relationship on solid ground after a rocky year," according to the report, which went on to say: “He picked out the locations for the trees and oversaw the landscaping himself. He also gave Vanessa an expensive juicer so she can make herself some fresh O.J. on hot summer days.”

With all the celeb-mimicry going on, let's hope this gift inspires other 21-year-olds to appreciate horticulture.
