Cool C.macrocarpa watermelon trunk!

pOGObob-bkyrd-wat5ermelon.jpg

Very Nice layout and a nice selection of palms too...Do you just leave your cuttings under the palms for mulch? I'm always afraid of bugs eating my tender palms...

So Beautiful! Makes me wonder how big they can get in a pot up here in VT. One of my C. macrocarpa seeds is showing signs of germinating! I'm pretty sure they are also v. Watermelon. Makes me think I might have to figure out how to smuggle one into the Bahamas!

Ah so , yes Robert. But do you understand the relationship between J.L.L. and your yard?

Hint....what was his nickname?

Today I stopped by Pogos to get his expertise on transplanting a Cyphophoenix elegans. Brought the wifey so she can see one in person and not think I'm crazy for doing the deed. While there I snapped a few shots.

Here are the two of them in the luscious, famed backyard.

Here is the C.elegans up closer. Can't believe I'm gonna get one of these...so stoked :drool:

Compare this with post 26.

Back to the backyard. Pogo pointed out to the wifey(to help her understand I need to get these palms!)that here are Hedyscepe canterburyana in three stages of growth.

ACK! I missed out on a PRA! I almost just drove by....

I just picked up a big palm up there yesterday and stopped and ate at Fatburger.... I thought several times about stoppin or callin Bob, but I thought he'd be in Vista.

Great pics Vince!

(WHERE'S THE C. MACROSTACHYA??)!!!! Is it behind the wifey person?

Bob has all choice palms in his garden. No turds.

Vince, you are well on your way to truly joining the dysfunctional palm family. I think most of us have but in many miles to get the palms we love.

Vince, Thanks for posting the pics of my favorite So Cal garden :drool: . Your gonna love your new Cyphophoenix Elegans! They do pic up speed once they start trunking. Mine has three rings of clear trunk and It's starting to peel off leaf bases fast.

Burretiokentia vieillardii revisited.

pOGObob2010-Burretiokentiavieill-1.jpg

Forgot to add this earlier. Here is the Chambeyronia hookeri that is by the Pinanga coronada.

pOGObob2010-Chookeri-1.jpg

Finaly for this year is a silhoutte shot of the Syagrus abreojos in the backyard. Sun blacked out he pic but the difference in the plumose leaves of this 'species?!' stand out from the commmon queen(IMO)

pOGObob2010-Syagrusabreojos-1.jpg

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.

After visiting Bob and his garden last month, it would be fare to say it is even better in real life, seeing the little hummingbirds drinking water was a new fascinating experience for me, their wings are really fast.

The garden is kept immaculate and each species planted for maximum impact on the eye.

and the hospitality is good, even got a cold beer. thank you Bob for the hospitality

regards

Colin

PS then got to see their new nursery, Cycads everywhere but they would not fit in my suitcasebiggrin.gif

Thanks for the great photos of Bob's wonderful garden. It was a treat to see the mature Rhopalostylis and Hedycepe. I have never seen either of these planted out here in Hawaii, although I managed to purchase some 5 gal ones. It will be a long wait, but worth it.

Cheers to Cheers; he looks like a real sweetie.

I'll reveal our the secrets to this garden:

Pogo pretty much mulches everything back into the garden. Every time he mows the grass all the clippings go back into the planters and decompose providing more nutrients. Most all the old palm leaves get cut up into little tiny pieces and go back into the soil. We have 4 dogs so they mulch a lot too if you know what I mean! About 15 years ago Pogo bought a ton of earthworms and released them into the soil, earthworm castings are like adding gold to your soil and makes everything grow like mad! Every little hole you make in his yard has numerous worms in it. We have gone on 4 x 4 missions just to collect mulch in the backcountry. Countless times we have loaded the F250 with oak tree leaves and avocado leafs for the garden. Pogo switches the fert up all the time too, some of the most used types are Gro Power Plus and recently Seaweed Extract. He hand-waters a lot too. His place in San Clemente has a really insane micro climate for palms, almost every morning and evening it is gloomy with fog than burns off around noon letting sun in. The house is less than a mile from the ocean too which helps. He has been there over 30 yrs...

Braden,

Thanks for sharing some pearls. It's obvious your place gets some special TLC. As a bystander I get to enjoy the work of 30 years...thats why I like to stop by. My wife says I look like a Japanese turist when I go over there with my camera! I'm not even sure why I'm so into shooting palms like Pogos but I am! :unsure: Hope my Cyphopheonix elegans end up looking as good as his. Look forewad to coming over next wekend when Troy is in town :)

Braden, I'm not sure this is the best idea at the moment since Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora) has become a major setback in many agricultural areas. This is a very nasty pathogen that, even though more prevalent in Northern Cal, can be come a factor here. The spores are so virulent that folks exiting infected areas are advised to disinfect their clothing.

Graig, looks liek no one answered the first time you asked. I believe the palm is Burretiokentia vieillardii.
