    I added Cestrum nocturnum and Cestrum fasciculatum var newellii this summer, but they haven't grown much. Hopefully they're focusing their growth on a healthy root system, because they're only a few inches tall. I sure wish this was zone 9, lol. This part of VA doesn't get much snow. As soon as we hear the word snow, folks panic and clean out the milk, bread, and water from the stores. Schools close from the possibility of snow even though it ends up just raining in some cases.

    Varigated livistona nitida update

    I cant find my last post but this plant looks better every single day and the varigation is second only to top notch rhapis minus the grasshopper bites. Enjoy.
  4. You can find 75% imidacloprid at domyown.com , Imidacloprid 75 WSB in water soluble packets. About 4 years ago one of my other large Bismarkias actually had palm weevils, with two boreholes beneath the leaf bases. I did a root drench and dumped some down the crown. Luckily i caught it in time. Once the crown is leaning, its too late. Today the tree is thriving. I do a yearly root drench on all my Bismarkias now.

    Rhopalostylis sapida pics

    Yeah I'd say you're correct. I'f there's no Nikau growing in those parts of the swamp forests then it's just too constantly wet, and muddy for them to establish there. If you planted mature palms there they could possibly survive but any seedlings would just rot away probably.

    $12 encephalartos for sale.

    One of the things we wanted to accomplish was to bring a lot of species into the mainstream and make attainable for an average gardeners budget. We have around 1000 aemulans and altensteinii for sale @$12 ea. The aemulans are two years old and will be 2-3" this time next year. Altensteinii germinated this spring. PM if you need one or 100. In the years to come we hope to expand our offerings at affordable prices.

    Palms of the Myrtle Beach Area

    CIDP These are all within a mile of the coast. There are a few further inland that I'll try to get pics of this week. The one with the pineapple cut is an old picture, it looks a lot nicer now. That restaurant has also added 2 more to their lot. I'll do my best to get pics of those this week as well.
  9. Cairns ( and that part of the Far North Queensland coast ) is very 'palmy' Blessed with a tropical maritime climate, good soils, abundant rainfall, although with a summer bias, there is generally enough winter rain to keep the place lush and green looking. A bit south of Cairns is the wettest region in Australia around Tully, Babinda and Innisfail, averaging 140"-160" a year. And inland from Cairns there are sub tropical highland plateaus of the Atherton Tablelands. All areas a palm lovers ( any tropical plants for that matter ) paradise.

    I'll say, doing well for sure. Ever try the red / pinkish flowered variety? You sure your area isn't closer to borderline 9a, lol. kidding, im sure the extra humidity is a factor in giving everything that extra boost during the growing season there. Interesting, didn't realize snowfall was minimal there.

    The Sago has really drooped more and the leaves are looking dead.

    Make your own zone map!

    Looking at this map there are a few changes I’d make but not much. Still looks pretty good to me

    Make your own zone map!

    It’s been a long time but I think I took a screenshot from google maps and then either used Microsoft Paint or another free program of the era to draw on the map. I do think I actually have a usb hard drive somewhere that might have the original file on it. I’ve made a few moves since then so probably buried in an obscure box in my garage which looks like a hoarder’s paradise at this time so it may be some time before I can dig it out

    Cestrum certainly does well here (at least this one does), so that's promising. It's about 7 ft tall right now. If the red firespike ends up coming back after a winter, I'll probably look into getting some of those you mentioned to trial here. I actually have the Cestrum planted on the east side of the house (~20 ft away) near the northeast corner, but will likely plant the firespike on the south side of the house if/when the time comes. Regarding snow, we usually only get about a dusting - 2" at a time and usually snows 1-2 times each winter. Also, it typically melts within a few hours. Of course in rare events we can get a foot of snow or in some winters none at all.
