Filifera Seedlings After Low of 4 Degrees
I planted a handful of seeds in May of 2014, and this is their second winter without protection. I'm in Lubbock (7b), and we had two cold snaps this winter; one was a low of 6, and the other was 4. Fast forward a couple of months, and I was pleasantly surprised to find new growth in several seedlings.
These seeds were provided by Jwitt--thanks buddy!
Chamaedorea microspadix loaded with seed & blooming again. These things pop up everywhere they drop.
Cretan date palm
Getting ready to flower. This one is a female & no other male dates in the area. I have multiple other dates, but they haven't flowered yet.
Trachycarpus fortunei 'Nanital'
By Palm crazy
Trachycarpus fortunei ‘Nanital’ to me is one of the most beautiful of all the hardy trachycarpus. The leaves are so big and wide they almost look like another palm species. This picture doesn’t do it justus but those that grow this palm will agree it awesome. This is the only one I have it’s a male palm. Also check out the orange pot, thats a canna australis I overwinter and put outside a week ago. The leaves are not really alive but the flower bud is….Thanks for looking.
I've obtained a double seeding with this mule palm seed but one of them look like it's developing two different plumules. What do you think?
