description:
Forms a round-topped tree 9-12m high. The clusters of large foxglove-like flowers provide a showy display in May, providing the buds are not damaged by frost. Sticky green seed pods ripen to release numerous winged seeds.

cultivation:
Fertile, well drained soil in sun. Very tolerant of atmospheric pollution.
Young plants may be pruned to the ground in spring and the resultant suckers reduced to a single stem. Such is the vigour that the shoot will reach 2.5-3m in a season and clothe itself with enormous leaves up to 0.6m or more.
