    Had a customer stop by to P / up some Joey palm and showed them this one. Wish all a Happy New Year and my all your palms be healthy.

    I’ve got so many Archies in the garden, it’s impossible to count them. They’ve naturalized here and many volunteers are mature trees now. The big ones are primarily cunninghamiana and Illawara but I also have alexandrae, maxima, myolensis, and purpurea.

    Thought I'd post some photos of this beautiful palm from Fiji. Haven't seen any specimens for sale for years, although mine is trying to seed, so they might be available in the near future. Steady grower, thick leathery leaves, and great garden scale. The two of them were planted from 1gal. back in the beginning of 2013. Tim

    Happy new year all! Came across this P. canariensis near Fair Park in Dallas. It is located near an abandoned warehouse and appears neglected. Seems to be very healthy! An interesting find...

    A lot of color in the yard right now from plans. Pyroformis slowly opening it’s frond since Christmas now finally unfurled.

    My backyard jungle. Video quality from an iPhone 8 pretty much stinks and adding extra music past the first song seems nearly impossible on youtube, so find some music you like while watching lol. Any questions about any palms just mark the time and ask.

    I just got this a few minutes ago from a guy who grew it in his apartment for about 20 years. He’s moving out of state and it needs to go in the ground so I’m giving it to someone who can plant it in the ground preferably in Palm Springs or similar area. Send me a PM if interested. Too big to ship local pickup. Palmy love to you all!

    Over the last decade or so I've noticed that palms (especially windmill palms) are becoming more and more common in Greensboro, NC. Greensboro is considered zone 7b, however over the last ten or fifteen years we have been having solid 8a winters. There are hundreds of windmill palms here in Greensboro- most planted in residential areas. They have even naturalized near the old Cone Cemetery. Next time I'm in town I'll try to get some pictures of the larger specimens around. Here are a couple nice ones I took a photo of last week: Sabal Minor under the mailbox across the street: Smaller windmill a few houses down: Live Oaks are fairly common in Greensboro as well, which surprised me when I first moved here. There are several large ones by the courthouse- I'll try to get pictures of them soon. Here is a good sized one in the neighborhood where I took these pictures.

    This is my A. alex twins. I'm living in Finland. Thats why they grow in pots for the rest of their lives. I am a grown them from seed. In spring they come 3 years.

    Here are some pictures of Cunningham and a trio of Alex. Both grow quickly although they do get beat up by the wind and cold. The Alex takes damage just below freezing and the Cunningham will take high 20's without too much damage. So far this winter we have not dipped below freezing. I did lose some Cunningham the first winter after it dipped down to around 26 and the palms were only around 3 feet tall. I would expect that they would recover quickly from that now with their current size.

    Ahhh, the last A. alexandrae left in the garden. A bit hard to see amongst all the other stuff. Pretty big considering it's growing out of solid rock. Tim

    maxima in my back yard. If anyone wants some seedlings, come buy and pull em out of the ground for me. There are hundreds!!

    Syagrus schizophylla a rather slow species (in my growing conditions) with a distinctive feature, the presence of spines at the margins of the leaf bases and of the petioles, which it shares only with the Syagrus santosii:

    Definitely shade for the Flamethrower! As far as how close is too close, there's no right answer and really depends on what you like. If you're concerned about overcrowding, the most important factor to consider is growth speed. Competing crowns look overcrowded but staggered heights, even for palms a few feet apart, can look very pleasing in my opinion.

    I didn't buy any palms for Christmas or New Year's since I had a garage full of seedlings, but I did decide to lower the inventory a bit by putting a bunch of them in the ground. I planted: 30 x Washingtonia filifera seedlings from the Moapa Valley - survival of the fittest - at least a few will likely damp off 1 x Brahea brandeegii (Thanks @redbeard917) 3 x Livistona chinensis (Thanks @palmsOrl) 1 x Livistona decora + 5 Arenga engleri (Thanks CFPACS) 16 x Sabal minor 'McCurtain' + 10 x Sabal minor 'Cherokee' + 2 x Washingtonia filifera selected for damp tolerance (Thanks @TexasColdHardyPalms) 1 x Phoenix canariensis from seed locally collected 5 x Serenoa repens 'Super Silver' (Thanks @cfkingfish) 7 x Trachycarpus fortunei (Thanks @Chester B) In the on-deck circle: 5 x Jubaea chilensis (Thanks @Josh-O) 30+ x Dypsis leptocheilos (Thanks @NatureGirl) 5 x Coccothrinax barbadensis (Thanks @DoomsDave) 2 x Phoenix reclinata from seed locally collected + possibly hybridized with canariensis nearby 3 x Nannorrhops ritchiana 'Silver' + 2 x Medemia argun (An additional thank you to TexasColdHardyPalms) ~35 x Adonidia merrillii (Thanks @NOT A TA ) Currently in germination: 30 x Hyphaene coriacea + ~120 Howea belmoreana (An additional thank you to cfkingfish) 10 x Howea forsteriana (from eBay) ~70 Dypsis leptocheilos (An additional thank you to NatureGirl) ~25 Thrinax radiata (An additional thank you to NOT A TA) ~25 Chamaedorea costaricana - Locally collected - Might get skunked on these, but we'll see.

    My Actinokentia opened up this frond well over a week ago. The red is still holding on strong.

    Planted this A. cunninghamiana as a three leaf seedling in 2012. I spoiled this palm when it was young. Deep watering almost daily. The lean is from Irma. Small A. maxima on the left planted in 2014.

    I believe you are taking risk planting a young Carpoxylon in full FL. I lost two small ones that way. I waited to plant my 3rd until it was 10g+ size then carefully placed it in partial shade on the rise overlooking the canal. It still sunburned/sunburns but did not totally fry. 2012 2019

    I went overboard a bit with cunninghamiana... now my garden doesn’t have much space but they do look good. Here is an alexandrae(in ground from a 3 gal) Also growing illawarra, purpurea, maxima, and some smaller tuckerii, and myolensis 3 years back we found out Lowe’s was mislabeling cunninghamiana and actually was alexandrae. So I drove to all the nearby Lowes looking for silvery underneaths! What else would a palm nut do?
