Thanks! It is prettier when it's in full bloom.

I had a huge tree when I lived in the San Francisco
Bay Area. It bloomed almost all year and I had many
seedlings popping up everywhere.

Had it. Did great. Then some lunkheads hired to clean up..chopped it down. Never asked.
And it did not come back strong... one weak shoot...that the cats knocked off. Then it died.
Hard luck plant.

It's very easy to grow from seed. There's many in the Bay Area. I had one in Hayward which was almost 20' tall and had a spread of more than 25'. It loves its location. My tree was the largest one I had ever seen. I haven't seen on that big even here in San Diego.

The only big problem with this tree is the thousands of seed pods and seedlings popping up everywhere.
