The Tetrapanax is flowering in China Valley: if that doesn't put the fear of god into all the vacant lots in Washington......

I don't know what will. If I had someone in the bottom photograph for scale you'd be able to see that the plant is approaching 15 feet in height. It died back to the ground last winter as it has done every year I have known it, that would be three. I love it; Big, bold, almost sculptural. Some of th larger leaves are every bit of 3 feet across.. Wow. If it could produce viable seeds and make it's way into disturbed habitats in the city....life would be more interesting.
