A smashing plant Andrew,I saw it growing for the first time at Kew last year, and was very impressed...

That's fantastic Andrew!
Mine is yet to flower, but maybe next year.....
Is this in the ground?

Richard - I first saw this growing in its native South America where it makes a tree. Over here, with our colder winters, it behaves as a woody perennial

Meanie - yes, it is. I previously grew one for a couple of years planted out in less than ideal conditions but a cold/wet winter did for it. Now it is in well-drained soil in full sun so hopefully will do better
