Three Sabal palms in Seattle
By Palm crazy
Not my photo but found on the web. This garden in West Seattle is famous for its Sabal etonia, S. causarium, and S. minor.
Nannorrhops ritchiana in Wichita
I'm pleased to say this Nannorrhops ritchiana growing in downtown Wichita is still alive! I've been checking up on it all winter, and I was almost certain it was dead. I took a close look today, it is pushing out new growth! Check it out! Planted in a bed a few feet from a plate glass window, but no protection other than the building.
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.
