Last week I went to San Diego to visit with Paul (Paulgila) and Jes. Staying at Paul's house is a PRA in itself. Everyday I would notice a new plant or palm in his beautiful jungle garden.

This is what it's all about, palm people outings, thanks for posting Jeff. I'm a bit partial to Euterpes Paul, looking real nice. I'm beginning to like the bare earth look around palms.

How is the breeding program for Colin's Chameadorea's going ?

Dennis W must have the record for the most boulders in a surburban yard ! Very effective though !

Jeff,

Thanks a lot for all the outstanding photos. :) Paul has a great garden and even though I had the pleasure of seeing it recently, it's always fun to re-visit! Dennis' garden, well, it's been MANY years, and it sure looks impressive! Maybe on my next San Diego trip... :)

I've been curious about this palm at Dennis'. It's supposed to be Pseudophoenix vinifera. It looks more like P. sargentii to me, but then again, I've never seen a P. vinifera growing in California, so I can't rule it out. Palms can look diferent here than in Florida from what I've seen. Anyone have any ideas on this one?
