One that I managed to grow from seed.  Close to 3 meters tall.

Now I can also say "WOW"!  I've just managed to get seed to germinate a few days ago and am thrilled to bits as I haven't been able to get any cuttings to grow.
Have you tried cuttings?

thanks for the response :)

Tried cuttings without success.

What's your secret of getting seeds to germinate as I'm unsuccessful the last 5 years.

No secret - (these were seeds from last year that I collected) and planted end of august this year - broke a few nails to peel off the hard outer "shell" and used a mix of river sand and peat and closed them up in their mini hothouse.  When I went to take a photo yesterday I found a tiny slug that had started to devour some of the seedlings - hence all the bait! I've been trying to get cuttings growing for at least 5 years as well! - but no luck so far.
