Hey Kyle,

This is so funny. I probably walked right past you today!....I took my family to the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. :mrlooney:

The Howeas in front of the newly refurbished building look fantastic. I especially liked the fact that they left an open "porthole" in the solar panels above the palms...for future growth.

This picture was taken on the "living roof." The roof of the building is covered with native plant growth including 7 "hills" (a tribute to the seven hills of the city). It is noted that it is as if the museum is tucked underneath, creating a green view from above.

Glenn! I was actually at the GGP at the end of last week. I just got back to Seattle yesterday. It is definitely a beautiful place! I didn't manage to go into the exhibits since my time was limited.

What is this Rhapis? I'm guessing some variety of Rhapis excelsa.

Ceroxylon alpinum! These had crown rot but were treated with sulfur and made a full recovery!

Calamus caryotoides! It's good to see another Rattan palm in cultivation, even if it's in a temperate climate!

Nice! I was there last summer. The Golden Gate Park is very nice with all the flowers. Too bad for me the California Academy of Sciences building was not completed then. Oh well, this will give me an excuse to visit there sometime soon. The De Young Museum is pretty cool if you go up to the top to get a 360 degree view of the city. BTW, the jubes were pretty cool even though they were not fat. There were quite a few fatty rhopies sapida at the park where the Fine Arts building stood.

Hi, Kyle:

Many Thanks for this most interesting display. The Museum in Post #73 is certainly unusual! Best Wishes,

merrill

Rhopalostylis baueri with Metrosideros excelsa aerial root reaching down. I included myself in the photo just so you could see how big these palms are!

WHOA Kyle! That is a fantastic palm!

Could this be Brahea nitida? or do I have them backwards?

KYLE GREAT PICTURES!

A real tour de force!

I think the palms in Nos. 82 and 83 are both B. brandeegii.

Kyle--

Great pics, especially Ceroxylons and Metrosideros excelsus. Probably the biggest one of the latter I have seen in CA.

Thank you for the compliments! Dave your play with words always entertains me! Thanks fastfeat, I now realize I've been mispelling Metrosideros excelsus this entire time :P I've never seen them banyan anywhere else in CA. Many of the ones lining the streets in San Francisco have many aerial roots too.

Unknown hybrid street tree in SF! Darold Petty says it could be a hybrid between the native madrone and a european madrone. I like their tropical look!

What kind of tree ferns are these?? When I was a baby these ferns were about the same height and I used to think they were coconut palms. lol. These are once again in Golden Gate Park.
