I like this tree when it is mature. The large leaves up to 1 feet(30cm) wide, spreading crown and the beautiful flowers make it an attractive tree. It is too large when mature for my small garden and I do not know what I will do with it. At the moment I am growing it in a large pot and using it as a backdrop to my border at the end of the garden. The leaves are reddish, brown when new eventually turning green.
