Variegated Palms and Cycads - show 'em!

70 posts in this topic

I'm surprised that NOT ONE post has been made about variegated palms/cycads in a long time - I'd love to see pictures!

Even better if you have small ones to share!

Planted a bunch of "variegated" Sabal palmetto - but we'll see what actually comes up!

Here's a couple of leaves on one of my foxy ladies. Not too much sun so not too much burn.

Each flush has half variegation with a few spots in the green fronds.

It used to be that not long ago, if someone had a variegated plant, you really had something. But now, almost anything you can think of has been chemically induced to produce variegation in it. I think Thailand has been leading the way by the looks of all the variegated plants that are now showing up at the markets.

Some of my variegated palms:

Adonidia merrillii - I keep it partially shaded by my Dypsis pembana. I took these photos early this morning. Perhaps that's why the variegation looks a bit "washed out".

Rhapis sp - Not excelsa but I'm not sure what species.

Rhapis excelsa - I have 7 or 8 in the shade garden. They seem to like it. Here are two of them:

This Wodyetia bifurcata went off on it's own from a batch of a couple dozen seedlings. I keep it indoors now to see if the leaves will stop bruising.:unsure:

I took this photo with my new phone, it doesn't seem to blow up. Should get myself a real camera.

William, looks like some Veitchia pollen got on that seed. The variegation on these palms (which some like to call Foxy Lady) does seem to "bruise" or turn necrotic fairly easily. Below is a little bit larger one that we have at our nursery in Miami.

Hey Everyone!

I usually don't reply on topics, I just read, but I had to with this one! Here's what I have variegated:

Caryota mitis

Veitchia merrillii

Wodyetia bifurcata

Howea forsteriana

Chambeyronia macrocarpa var watermelon (if you count that)

and a couple varieties of Rhapis excelsa

Does anyone know where I can get anything I don't already have? I search for variegated palms and cycas almost daily, but rarely ever come up with anything.

Group,

Wow, one of Danny's (R.E.Var Kotobuki) favorite topics. I thought I'd add a few more photos for fun. Most of these are of nursery plants. All are from different actual plants/varieties.

Phil,

What is the one on the bottom right? and when you say they are "nursery plants", do you mean that your nursery is offering them for sale?

Secondly, to everyone, I just picked up a couple variegated Wodyetia bifurcata yesterday, TOTALLY EXCITED about 'em!
