My pleasure @MelanieAt - I would say it's more like a very large shrub than a tree. It gets bigger and more vigorous each year I've had it though. In its third year now and clumping up well - standing around 4-5ft tall. Expecting many more blooms next year 👍🏼

Looks like a little fountain in the centre Rich, or a lady with big skirt. Sorry my overactive mind 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I saw one a couple of years ago at the gardens of the National Rose Society, and they were selling divisions so I bought one. They had huge ones. Sadly it's gone into administration now, which is a shame as it was just down the road from me and nice to visit every so often @carolgs

Newbie to the garden that I bought a couple of weekends ago. Looks fantastic when it reaches full size, but clearly this one is just a baby #romneya #romneya-coulteri #californiantreepoppy

I know, right? I don't think it will ever get tree size in this country and it will die back every year. But it will look great!

I think its fully frost hardy, so you may be ok, fingers crossed and good luck with your search. Keep me posted 👍🏼

Great plant, grows very well a sunny spot and is established in 2-3 years here in Jersey. Mid/late summer winner!

Excellent - checked up on mine yesterday and new growth is appearing. Hoping to get it established a bit more this year as its still quite tiny. Thanks @BlairJerseyGardener 👍🏼
