Anthocleista grandiflora - Forest Fever Tree (Anthocleista grandiflora - Forest Fever Tree)

This very unusual tropical tree is growing at my friend’s house in northern San Diego County. The leaves are very large 5 ft or (1.4 m) long. Photo taken Dec. 17, 2022.

Amazing tree. Seems like your friend has a good "collection" if unusual trees.

A very beautiful, rare collection of tropical palms and trees.

Oops. I called it African Fever tree on your other photo. I don't know much about them other than hard to find and some bay area tolerance to cold. Probably best in frost free 10 b Oakland or the hillsides that drain the cold air.

It’s a beautiful tree! I knew nothing about it until I saw my friend’s tree. I want one! 😂
