miamicuse I am in love with the colorful bark of this tree. I saw a 15
specimen in the Black Olive Nursery in Fort Lauderdale today. They tol
me it will grow up to 40 feet tall but no idea if it is hurrican
reistant in any way...
I did some search on the web and it says;
"Very large forest tree to 220ft. It is a fast grower, though it can b
kept to a much smaller sized if desired. Grows well in full sun or par
shade. Generally likes a lot of water and naturally grows in
rain-forest environment. Hardy to 26-28F, but only for brief periods
will not stand intense or prolonged frosts. Prefers a humid, coole
220 ft? Wow that is not going to work or is that in the ideal conditio
in it's native habitat? Can I plant it ten feet from a house in Miami
to be honest with u MC i would really think twice or even a dozen time
before planting this tree.
its sure is a pretty impressive tree but take a look at what it say
