Sandra:

Thanks! These are great trees!

Hopefully your friend hasn't been here in the last 3 weeks...the weather has been very rainy and cool for October. Typically we receive no rain in October and it's warm to hot and very dry...like how it was today (Oct. 27, 2010).

Sandra:

I'm sure the Welsh rain is more than our "so called rain", which most people from around the world consider drizzle. LOL! :>)

Yes, this species has a very beautiful, shiny leaf! It's not as common as T. palmata, though. It's also very tropical.
