Agreed Jason. I now realise that my plant thought to be parvum is likely to pityrophyllum as the seed came from Bolivia. I suspect many of the parvum out there are from the same seed source. Parvum is now considered to be found in just two sites in Ecuador. Now to get me some parvum seed!
We have a couple of 5g Ceroxylon parvum here at Flora Grubb Gardens.
There's a new revision of Ceroxylon available. Reading it makes me think the plants labeled parvum here and at UC Bot will be returned to pityrophyllum, the name their were originally labeled with.

Wallichia densiflora performs reasonably well in the Bay Area, as well. The Wallichia disticha at UCBot are the only ones I recall seeing in any size north of Santa Barbara.
