Looking for container grown royals, anything from 6-8-10 feet. And they have to be the type with the large bulbous trunk base. There are several different types and I like the ones with the fat base. Not sure if they are the elata or regia. Any help appreciated...

I think the fat trunk ones are from Cuba.

Elata = Regia
The 'Florida Royal' and 'Cuban Roya'l are one in the same. The earlier name 'regia' then takes precedence, once they were 'lumped together'

Actually, "elata" is the earlier specific epithet, going back to William Bartram, but a relatively recent change to the nomenclature rules makes it possible to "conserve" a widely used name at the expense of an older but less used one.  So Cuba, where R. regias are everywhere, won out over Florida.
