I love seeing these! They are Medjool Date Palms, basic but always fun to grow from seed!
Retail nurseries greater Cairns area Queensland Australia
Anyone familiar with nurseries, garden centres near and in Cairns, North Queensland? Im looking for unusual palms, foliage plants, Cordylines, Codiaeums that sort of thing? Will be there next week and would like to visit a few good ones in between diving amongst the fishes. Most on the internet seem to be either mail order or wholesalers. Any info would be very well recieved. Thanks.
Growing in the Rain
TS Alberto is scheduled to wash out Memorial Day weekend here and so far has. The past 10 days have been exceptionally rainy here so my palms and other plants have shifted to growing overdrive. I can't work outdoors during frequent downpours. Yesterday when the rain briefly cut back to a drizzle I grabbed my camera to record the start of an explosion of growth.
First off, photos my three Latania species:
Lantania loddigesii (blue, left) and L. lontaroides (red, right)
Latania verschaffeltii - yellow Latan

Naturalized Palm Hot Spot, Florida
I found this area in Florida and there are all kinds of naturalized palms growing in this wooded area, I don't know if it used to be a palm farm or something but it is interesting to look around in on Google Maps.
Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) blooming
My on-year-old seedlings have started to bloom. I'm hoping these rare to South Florida trees will grow large enough to impress my neighbors.
