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.
