The attractive, large flowers are yellow and purple. The oldest, giant specimen of this tree in Madagascar reputedly has germinated about 3000 years ago and is one of the oldest trees on the planet. In cultivation it does best in the dry tropics in USDA Zone 10 or above. Soak seeds in water for a day before sowing in a well draining substrate.
