together. some even have many stems or
multiple trunks.

Stunning but over here they would last 5 mins unless protected.

Sixpence:

They're pretty slow growing...they take many years to grow to this size, even here.

It would only be a patient gardener then that would want to grow one of these then

Sixpence:

Large ones are commonly available for sale...however, one will have to pay a very hefty price.
