Large trees in the ground have much larger flower spikes. (at least twice a big)

Thanks! It's not a hardy. It's a large tropical tree which is native the Congo rain forest of Africa.

It can be easily be grown in a large pot with lots of water.

It's grown easily from seeds. I've read it can be grown from cuttings also...but never tried it before.
