Default Beautiful, Royal And Majestic 'Ae Ae' Is Flowering!

Wooohooo!......Yeehaa!....



Finally, The Beautiful, Royal and Majestic 'Ae Ae' is flowering!.....Flag leaf is out!.....'Ae Ae' measured exactly 10 1/2 ft tall right now, at flowering!..... 'Ae Ae' was transplanted to the ground on July, 2016..... It is my first 'Ae Ae' flower!......I was waiting impatiently for this one to flower/blooms!....For me, it is a personal goal achievement accomplished!......

It is incredible!..... The Beautiful, Royal and Majestic 'Ae Ae' and French Red are flowering at the same time!.....I'm amazed!....


Pictures from 08/04/2017....











Thanks for seeing the thread!....

Thank you Steve!....I'm amazed by the 'Ae Ae' size!....32 inches of circumference at the base and only 10 1/2 ft tall!.....An 'Ae Ae' monster!....Next (second) 'Ae Ae' crop should grow to a "normal" 'Ae Ae' dimensions!....Even bigger and taller!....

I'd like to add my congratulations to you, Hector. How beautiful that is!!! I am extremely jealous, but couldn't be happier for you. When you hope and care for something like that and then see the "fruits" of your labor -- just spectacular!
