I purchased a seedling a little over a year ago, it is now about three feet tall and suckering. Fast grower in Southwest Florida.

Clustering species from southern India. Has nice golden to pale yellow crownshafts. Supposedly has a modicum of cold hardiness, but not aware of anyone growing this in southern California. Looks a bit like Pinanga elmeri, which does grow here, though. Clusters can be somewhat spread out as plant sometimes spreads via underground stolons.
