    Thanks, Laura. I think you nailed it. I’ve had mine for about 4 years. It has never flowered.

    Check out species in the Operculicarya genus. Perhaps O. decaryi (?). Flowers will help narrowing down which species. According to sources, O. decaryi has red flowers. Best wishes! https://www.logees.com/elephant-tree-operculicarya-decaryi-1705.html
