    This tree has become a real favorite of mine. It has matured in a brief time, been an easy grow, hasn't taken over, and is a real eye catcher.

    I started a topic on it when I first propgated it from a partially rooted "cutting." HERE

    And there is an update from about 2 yrs ago HERE so you can get some idea of the rate of growth.

    I hear there is one at the Huntington in SoCal, so it is tolerant of less than tropical conditions.

    Looks great Dean! I've got a few seedlings that should be ready to plant next year. Any sign of flowers?

    Thanks Peter,

    I haven't looked closely. Will they "pop out" at me, or are they hard to spot? What am I looking for? Do you have any idea what time of year they tend to flower?
