That's beautiful! Thank you for sharing. How big is the base? How old is it?

Very nice Ed!  Is yours a single plant with multiple heads?  I had a couple of neighbors with flowering plants when I lived in Corpus Christi.  Never saw any seeds, but they were too tall to get a good look without having to borrow the neighbor's ladder!  Hopefully you can collect some - I understand they are easy to germinate.  I've got a 5-headed one in a container I've had for years that I'm considering planting out, but it's such a care-free plant wherever it grows!

Hi guys, it's a single plant, base is about 5 foot, it's about 18 feet tall, purchased as a 3 gallon in 1987, went in ground 2004, it's at the base of my leech field, it's a female, it's not monocarpic, and it's dioecious, this is the 2nd time it's flowered, Ed
