Last weekend I climbed back behind our tallest palm, a Trachycarpus fortunei, to cut back a couple of crispy Macleaya cordata stems. While there I looked up to see if I could spot any bomarea seeds on the vine. I did not, but I was in awe just the same. This tree has grown from a plant I looked down on, to towering heights. It supports two different vines growing on it and produces copious amounts of seed every year. Look at that dramatic frond at the top of the trunk. Aren't plants just the coolest?
