    I found this today. Not the biggest around here..that huge one I posted on Dave's Garden. Well,come to think of it,this might be the largest now..the old monarch was butchered last I saw it. As usual,new owners don't appreciate what the old owners loved and took care of.

    If you had to guess an age on that, what would it be?

    At least 30 years. That's based on mine planted about the same time,but I had let go multitrunk..or it went multitrunk. There is so much DNA in these plants. Some seem to have much Yucca aloifolia genes in them. That's a clumper. The best are single trunk and can look a whole lot like a Dragon Tree.
    That horsepital was built in 1958 as it was just in the news last year.

    Here's a big Jade. God,I can only imagine the size they get on the dry islands of Hawaii. They must haves trunks like Socotra's Adeniums.
