A couple of years ago at the get together, Elizabeth handed me a pot with a small 'twig' in it. She said 'it's only a little baby T Rex'. Of course back then I had no idea what a big T. Rex was, let alone a baby. 

So I duly planted it up and it started to grow bigger and bigger. I mentioned it to Elizabeth and she said 'oh I meant it was a seedling!!!' ha ha. 

Anyway each year it has put on some more growth and this year was no different  

This was it yesterday. Growing mad and looking fantastic if spanning over some other plants. But I don't mind, it's beautiful.

I love that glimmer of light above the T. rex in the third photo.

Delighted it is doing well for you Jackie. If you want just one with very big leaves remove the babies as they appear!!
