A couple of years ago in Parma, I saw this very large tree with lilac/pinkish flowers so took some cuttings. One grew into a 8" x 1/2" large cigar shaped and coloured trunk with 4 tomato-like leaves (two large and two small) on each lateral. After a year all the leaves dropped off and come Spring and Summer nothing else grew. Now it has produced two runners which are growing either side of the trunk. I could do with identifying this plant to know whether to remove one of the offspring or just let it do its own thing. It is not an uncommon tree but have been unable to identify it on-line. Any suggestions most welcome.

Welcome! Are you elsewhere in Italy? I ask because it narrows down what will grow in Parma and also wherever you are. Is it possible to show us a picture of the whole plant and a close view of its leaves?
