Stunning Bill, lucky enough to have seen these in their native heartland of Burma in 1990 /91. Unlucky enough by not having a warm enough climate to grow one. Spectacular tree, thanks for posting Pete. :)

These are NOT as tender as we have been lead to believe. The Arboretum's Amherstia has been in bloom for three months now. It should be tried in more places.

I wish mine look as good as yours..... probably doesn't like where I am planting it. The browneopsis is 3 times as big now and planted at the same time and same size... Might have to plant another one somewhere else....

Your tree (and photos) are stunning! Congratulations! I get to check on my two small ones next week. Those new leaves plus orchid like flowers are hard to beat! My one experience with a fresh seed picked off a friend's tree was quick germination and a rapid growth rate. So I hope your tree makes those gorgeous seed pods (with potential new plants inside) soon! I gave the seedling to the women who sold us our farm and she's delighted to watch it grow rapidly.
