One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

They were only planted a bit over three weeks ago. I cleaned the seed and "top sowed" it as per various references. In the top picture you can see the seed; it looks much like a grain of rice. Some of them are 3" tall. I potted up a number of them though I'm still uncertain what we're going to do with them. They grow 30m high and 20cm in diameter and they spread.
