well i have misplaced the image of the whole tree ( royal Poinciana) but this is the money shot anyways.

the flowers are easily 4" across and the vine is over an inch!!!!

these are like 15-20 feet up but my neighbor said we can try to pollinate a few...seems like the type of high risk, low reward venture i am in for!!!

The time frame to pollinate Vanilla is ridiculously short, you better skip planning and act now!

Hope it's your 'good' neighbour holding the ladder for you! Wouldn't trust the other s**t!

Looks beautiful.

not very as the whole tree is not more than 5 years in this location.

the owner told me it was a cutting, so likely from a large and robust specimen but it climbed that tree in under a year?!?!

here is a bettere shot of the whole tree

and here you can see it is up and then hangs down like 5-6 feet....it will conquer this tree one day!!
