The large leaves (up to 18 inches long) lend a tropical look to the landscape when the plant is not in bloom.
New growth is bronze-colored, especially on plants grown in full sun.
Young stems are flexible and often tend toward a pendant habit, but the main stems at the base of the plant thicken into sturdy trunks with age, often reaching 4 inches in diameter. A persistent leaf scar completely encircles the trunk.
|This plant is about 8 feet tall.|
