Yes, those castor trees will pop up everywhere. lol! They pop up even in asphalt along the roads, here in San Diego.

Moti, thank you!

Delonix, in asphalt! That's amazing. I didn't buy this plant; one seedling popped up in 2009 out of blue, and it multiplied year by year. Great plant indeed!!!

It seems this plant doesn't self-seed in England though. I feel pretty lucky I don't have to sow seeds every year :-)
