You must have  a inferior form. The numerous flowers are a bout 8-10cm in
diameter (3"). At the moment the plants are 3m high (10ft) The shoots which
will bear the buds are now lengthening quickly and  flowers will be at about
4 m high.  Foliage is  not as fine as the Melia trees.
The major problems here are very strong winds in the Novembre - Decembre
period (laste year we wre left with flowers  on stems without leaves)  and
frosts down below -4° (23°F) will burn the leaves. But  for the time being
the planting is a magnificient row of 120m long and 3m high. If all goes
well I will show you some pictures.
