Pachira aquatica is a native of central and south america, it grows in swamps, {hence the name} and is tender and will not grow in England unless you can recreate a tropical swamp in your greenhouse, Derek.

It is grown here as a houseplant. If you Google it, you will find the conditions it requires.
