Found in rainforests growing along riverbanks and down in valleys. Slender branches droop from a large trunk that sometimes forks from the base. White flowers grow in clusters at the end of the drooping branches and accent deep green leaves. These flowers bloom at night and attract night flying pollinators. Grows well in any type of soil including poor soil types.
Treat as a tropical that cannot tolerate frost.
