    I have two of these trees. They are over ten feet tall with flowers and the trunk at the bottom is around four or five feet wide. My husband once told me that they were about 25 years old . Can anyone tell me if these tress are worth some kind of money and who will be interested in buying them?

    They sound like very nice specimens. There are nurseries that specialize in landscaping and supplying plants for large corporate buildings, shopping malls, etc. In Miami, there should be a few places to call.

    A local nursery had one that had a caudex about 3ft. across and they had a price tag on it that was over $1000.00. Granted, up here in the North, big specimens are almost non-existent and are indoors only.
