I wasn't joking, I got a Washy from Lowes and it is going in the ground. In the winter I will use a heat wire, thermocube, and a tarp. I will post a pic when I plant it.
Washingtonia robusta or filifera
I bought recently a washingtonia Palm. I think it's a filifera but I'm totally sure.
Here are some fotos. Do you have any idea ?
Washingtonia in Columbia SC
I was in Columbia, SC this weekend. I lived here for a few years a decade ago and decided to check on some palms around town. Here's pics of three very large Washingtonia - seemed to be doing pretty good! Each has at least 20-25' of trunk I'd guess; they're tall.
The first palm is one that Penny has sold seeds from on eBay (I bought some last year). It's near the botanical garden. The second and third pics are closer to/in downtown. The third pic also has a palmetto behind the two Washingtonia.
Palm advice please
Hi everyone, so I purchased a Washingtonia around a month ago. It was in the nursery sitting in a lot of cold water with around 20 others. They all looked quite healthy so I got one. Since putting it into the warm and dry it has pushed up 2 spears both of which are partially rotted, the first has opened but has lots of brown marks, the second is worse but it's still pushing up the spear. Question is if the spear is being pushed up and it doesn't pull out should I worry? Or just let it push them up until healthy growth recurs? I did photograph and show them to the nursery and I said it was probably due to sitting in cold water over winter (they had flooding)- they have since moved them to the dry.
A Sight I Love
I know, washies are easily germinated, but I love when I see that first little blade emerging for all of my seeds. Why not share the moment.
