I took a pic of one 8-10' growing outdoors here. I thought that was big.
I do have one that began as a wee dish garden plant. Its a stout 4' double trunker now. I need to get it in the ground.
For some reason Andy,I have that,the triclor,Codylines,Yucca's,Beaucarnea,and other types of "grass trees" planted on my small lot. Never planned it,or tried to collect them. They just seem to look and do better.

I grew this plant in the SF Bay Area; however, during some freezes they would die (they're so common, though and easily replaced) It doesn't take freezing temps well at all.
