Thanks Evelyn. I checked out this source and unfortunately down in the lower right hand corner of the image it says: Out of stock. Maybe later this year? In the meantime I have been hovering over some seedlings I managed to produce from ebay purchases and so have 6 new plants coming up.

Oh good!

Well my cuttings morphed into 6 foot and more giants branching out in all directions. Unfortunately a wind storm flattened them to the ground. I have found out thusly these are not
strong plants. They must need frequent pruning to maintain strong trunks. Guess I will stick with giant Peruvian cactus. They bloom prolifically and seem to withstand strong winds. Also keeps two legged predators out of the veggie garden.

Oh, I am so sorry. I guess that you have to put them against a wall, in a sheltered spot.
