Notes:

Someone gave me 2 of these 3-4 years ago and didn’t know what they were. They grow extremely fast and this one has never been trimmed or cut in anyway. It’s around 13-15 ft tall, branches touch the ground. It flowers out twice a year in tiny downward hanging flowers in little bunches all over and then something that looks and sounds like some kind of nut in a green shell. Multiplies like crazy every year, and all roots very fast off of cuttings. The trees have large shallow running roots.

    Maybe Hardy tapioca / hardy cassava (Manihot grahamii). Check out the link below for more information. Best wishes! https://garden.org/plants/view/163715/Hardy-Tapioca-Manihot-grahamii/
