Just gets better everytime i see it . The block appears to be a similar size to mine and its amazing how Bob has integrated all those palms into a rather small space .

the "Pièce de résistance is the Hedyscepe canterburyana that was planted in 1978 a beautiful aged trunk with a perfectly symetrical crownshaft of arching fronds reaching up into the southern California sun .

Close 2nd IMO is the Rhopalostylis sapida (chatham Islands )

and 3rd is the legendary syagrus abreojos and the amazing story behind its discovery in Baja !

Having received a quantity of seeds from Bob's Syagrus abreojos and the beer belly Rhopalostylis sapida (chatham Islands ) the Tasmanian growers ,Nomolos, Jonathan and myself hope to have a little piece of Bob's palms in our own Gardens . :D

I agree with JD on some of the id's being wrong. Post 8 isn't a redneck, looks like a tri-bear.

Pardon my rookie ID's. I'm still a seedling! The small palm in the front is a tri bear and Chambeyronia is a houailou. Here are some more shots.

Those rhopies are admirable but how many million years old would they be ??? That is the only thing that stops me from planting a couple. Did Bob by them half grown or did he plant them before he was born ?

BS Man about Palms

Great pictures Vince! You are doing fine as a "seedling". But #22 is a Hedyscepe canterburyana and #24 has a Howea belmoreana... You were right on the Chamby the first time. The "identifiable" C. houliou is the "yellow" trunked one behind the bench in post #2. Please keep posting.

You have some of the best pictures of Bobs place I've seen!

Ahh, nice to see the white work truck still in place. :) has it been moved since my visit 1 1/2 years ago? lol! The yard is looking great, just as I remembered. Size for size, it's one of the nicest gardens in Socal, IMO. Thanks for the pictures.....

Peachy,

I think Bob been in that house for just over 30 years...so many of those beauties are 20+ years old. And here in Cali they usually grow slower!!

Thanks for the photos of this fine garden. It's not only a wonderful collection of mature palms, it has a real sense of place. When you walk out among the palms, you know you have entered a special place; something to do with the cohesive design, the colorful details, the manicured neatness of a resort combined with the relaxed tropical vibe. I give this garden five stars: B)B)B)B)B)
