Yes. These plants were just put in a couple of years ago. They're around 5ft/1.5m or so high, there's some a little larger in the shade.

Here's a pic of a very tall one in Palm Spring, CA. in the low desert. It's the tallest on I've ever seen. I always though they topped out at 15ft/4.6m tall.

I'm in the pic. please forgive the way I look. lol! The temp was HORRIBLY HOT at 114ºF/45.5ºC.!
