I planted a M. grahamii for some temporary canopy and now I'm either cutting it down or maybe I'll pollard it and leave it for another year. Anyway, I have some nice branches, several feet long, that will take easily if anyone wants to give this tree a try. They are fast growing, trouble free, and the display of bees pollinating the flowers in summer is the most amazing I've ever seen. Give me a call or come on by and you can have as many cuttings as you want.

You rock - that plant is unusual, a great performer in coastal California, excellent palm companion plant. Wish I were nearby to grab a cutting.
