Pictures of Palms at My Farm

Recommended Posts

Adam from Oz

I figured I shoot a few of my best palms to share here.

Ken,

Since you didn't show this one, I will... :drool:

(yes...for a few coins you can have this little jewel installed in your yard...THE BORRASUS!!!)

(I had Christian Faulkner -- cfkingfish -- stand on the base & hold it so it wouldn't tip over... :rolleyes: )

I CANNOT get my head around this at all. It just doesn't make sense!

WOOF to the nth degree.

The first palm I planted when I bought this property was this royal. It has a foot of wood 25 years ago!

The Corypha umbraculifera was in the ground, dug up for sale, never sold. and put back in front of my house!

Hey Ken, how does the Corypha umbraculifera look today, if you don't mind me asking. :)

Funny you should ask. It has almost doubled in size, I have a deposit on it and it is root prunnued.

Hello Ken !

Congratulation for your farm !

You have a lot of rare palmtrees like yours Satakentia :D , Syagrus amara :drool: , Chambeyronia, Gastrococos ... !

What Syagrus species you grow ?

And do you have any Phoenix species ?

I can see on this picture a Phoenix roebelenii trunk on the middle:

And all of the pots that are stacked on the left.. It's funny! That look like my garden :rolleyes: !

I can't wait to see your farm ! It'll be a very interesting and attractive experience !

Only have 2 amara. Maybe an orphan or two other syagrus. No Phoenix except the specimen roebs.

This summer should be a blast. We will work and play hard! See you then.

I took some fresh Pix today and though this post could use a bump.

How in Sam's green hell did I miss this show.Cocothrinax,Thrinax,Licuala,Ceroxolon,Brahea(Fla?),Howea(Fla?),Sarkentia,Kentiopis,...Well you get the picture.Not to mention those insane Borrassus,enough to drive poor Christian insane.

All other's stand down and give this guy some Quan! Anybody who gives no Quan to Ken is flat jealous or stupid!Let the Big Dog Eat!

Still to much of a newbie to have full appreciation for what I am seeing, but I agree with what this guy said. Giving Quan.

Gladly you're not too close to Sri Lanka, otherwise I would order many Carpoxylon and Copernica hospita !

Thanks for these beautiful pictures.

Do you believe Carpoxylon would grow in Sri Lanka? where Areca catechu, A, concinna, Oncospermums and Caryotas are endemic?

I can start with seeds and wait!

Regards.
