This is standard yellow not the giants.  These may grow a little faster and have larger and less thorns.  We will have giant yellow and grafted giant yellow megalanthus plants for sale in a few months hopefully.  Simon and I are working on making the giants grow faster.  As it is they grow so slow its hard to even have enough to take cuttings from.

Cuttings arrived in the mail today and are very large and in great shape.

Thanks for throwing a few extra in - now off to Home Depot for more pots.

I will have frankies red cuttings available in spring.  This is not the right time to start DF cuttings in CA.  And frankies red needs a lot of heat to get started.  You need a greenhouse to root them this time of year and push growth.

Sure you can get some cuttings.  You will want to use a greenhouse and a heat mat would help with small pot size to get warm root zone for winter rooting.  Frankies red takes way more heat to get going than any other type I have.  More even than regular megalanthus.

Send me a PM for the cuttings.

Thanks
