This one is not very common here - I've only ever seen it once and that was in a park.

Thank you for the comment.

There's quite a few large trees around now. I think it started becoming available about 15 years ago or so...and I still don't know where it originated. It is a grafted tree that's all I know about this tree.

It is commonly available for sale now ...it doesn't seem to grow quite as tall as the orange/red African tulip tree...so it's good for a smaller garden.
