I love growing unusual and interesting things and am teaching my son to love it too. I have a tiny mostly potted garden in Newcastle NSW.

Heart shaped flower pods. Supposed to be self-fertile but I keep missing my window for helping out with some mechanical intervention #autumnblooms

@KathyB I’ve never heard of this before. Is it hardy for the uk?

@pixierose they are native to tropical South America so can only just make it through my warm-temperate/maybe sub-tropical (depending on the map) winters.

New shoots after Winter. My mum was in Queensland this week and a nursery there told her you could NEVER grow this in Newcastle. Well I say 😝 to that! 😉

This is one of my most tropical trees. Doing well for winter! (living next to the hot water heater helps!)
