Thanks all!

I'll be mothering this for this winter PA, then I'll do some back ups in the spring.

Meanie:

I'm actually surprised it will bloom there. Good job! It typically needs a tremendous amount of heat to bloom well...especially since it's native to south Florida and the Caribbean.

It's extremely common tree/shrub here. They usually bloom and have the golden berries on them at the same time. It can become a large tree here -- to more than 30ft (10m tall). There's a lot of varieties, also.

Thanks Delonix! It'll get plenty of heat in my house!!!

Doubt that it'll hit ten metres though..............

It could never hit 10m in a pot! It most definitely would have to be put into the ground.
