Also February 2015, the other 'Hercules' finally got a spot in the ground:
 
Update November 2015:  Wow.
Update March 2016:  Holy Moly.  It has started to branch out.
 The other 'Hercules' now in the ground for more than a year, is showing signs of growth.  I will update this post as they grow.  
October 2016.  It's getting tough getting a photo from the same angle.
 The trunk has bulked up.

  1. Whoa! That's impressive for one year's growth. Is that a Grevillea 'Moonlight' to the left?

  3. These three plants look wonderful together, the leaf textures and colours, I love the grevillea to the left. Sorry, I have not visited, I have been very ill in hospital and have to return in three weeks.

  4. Holy guacamole. Excited and scared at the same time, seeing I have one that isn't far behind yours.
