Some of the members might be interested to know that we live two blocks from the Gulf of Mexico. Our plant (not sure which one) was given to us last yr. It began blooming profusely this summer, and was covered in blooms...until Hurricane Ivan stipped it clean of all foliage in Sept.

Within three or four weeks, it had regained new foliage and had over thirty+ bloom pods all over it. It was blooming in late November...

From your web page, it appears that it can stand temps down to 15F??? If true, I will not dig it and leave it outdoors..

Would like to know the best time to take cuttings for propagation?

This plant stated growing on its own in our nursery around mid june. It is now around 2' tall and doing well with many blooms. We have no idea of where it came from or how it got planted

My mother has this plant. It is taller than me, which it would be close to 6 feet. When it is going to bloom, there are 20 or 30 buds on it and they all open up close to the same time. The tree is gorgeous when it is in full bloom. Though it has a hard transition from outside to inside before the cold months, it ends up budding again in the spring when it's back outside!
