Redneck palms

Recommended Posts

Walter John

Noticed the sun shine on my redneck palm near the deck, Dypsis leptocheilos, so I grabbed the camera and voila. Love to see all your redneck palms here or simply tell us about them and how much you like them.

This new one is my favorite. A little droopier than most.....maybe from questionable heritage :D

The above palms are wonderful, amazing, ... and so one!

I didnt see any of these at nearby nurserys.

But i will look for them, sort of... :drool:

How hardy are them? Few, certainly...

These are such beautiful palms, can't believe I don't have one yet.

Here's a photo of one up the coast, a real beaut.

Wal is missing his old place already .

Tim that is a very robust one near you , fat as base .

Just dug away the Costus 'Kiss of Death' that was encroaching on my little Teddy.

My card reader is playing up so no new pic posting until I can replace it .

But I am very happy with the growth rate , trunk is easily 50 cm at 3 years old .

It was planted as a tiny seedling in 100mm pot , I am hoping for 1m @ 4 years old?

Hi Laura, they're about 7 feet apart. The Foxy Lady is a rocket!

Here are a few pictures of the very small one I have planted (described as a "highland redneck") -- at least at this size, the crownshaft and stem colors are quite impressive :drool: :

Highlandredneckbasecolor1Feb2010.jpg

Highlandredneckbasecolor2Feb2010.jpg

Highlandredneckbasecolor3Feb2010.jpg

And this is one of the palms that came through that last cold spell with almost no impact (it is under oak canopy so didn't get direct frost but it was exposed to the numerous multi-hour below-freezing nights).

Tim- Thats a unique palm there. It looks like the petiole length of a highland, but the marking look like the masoala type. Can you show the whole plant? was it stretched from low light?

Bill, you know petiole length can depend heavily on shade amounts. So not a good judge of character here. I think this is a dead ringer for that plant you have and now hearing it went through some freeze, it is time I buy one from Phil before they are all gone.

I'll take a couple more pictures of the entire palm and post them here soon (I'm at work right now) as well as a picture of the other one of these I have that is still in a pot. This palm is in a "semi-shaded" environment (since the oak canopy is very high and somewhat sparse) and it did have mulch piled up high around it's base during that recent cold event (so the crown most likely did not get freezing temp impact). However, based upon how several of the other palms that had the "mulch blanket" protection still showed (and are still showing...) damage, this one did fare well overall.

Also, I've sent a note to Christian Faulkner to chime in with some input on this palm's origin (since I got it from him) -- I have it shown as Dypsis lastelliana ‘highland redneck’ on my plant list.

Lovin this thread. Hopefully, my Teddy's will grow up to be just like these.

Gileno - Off topic but are those huge trees behind the Red Teds variegated pleomeles?

I'm disappointed that my A. Macrocalyx seeds threw their embryos! looks like an awesome plant judging by that photo.

Here are the additional pictures of my little (planted) highland redneck as well as the other one that's still in a 1 gallon pot (I'm trying the "multiple attachment" feature as opposed to downloading them to photobucket first and then here to the forum):

Tim! Thats cool! Those pics confirmed it as what you bought it as, also known as Dypsis hovendrina or hoviendrina, I've seen it several ways! Here is mine planted a couple years back. It sees half day sun, so the leaves are not the prettiest. I have a thread on when I planted it some where....

post-27-12653368017153_thumb.jpg

What Len thought (and I did a bit too, but I wanted to see the top) was that it was this palm. Your last close up confirms "mealybugs" instead of "lines" like this one has.

Tim- You'll find that palm will keep the long petiole. Its not only that way from stretching. Heres the thread on mine. Also, if you look, Bo has some pictured on his site too. VERY few people grow them here because some folks decided they won't grow here. Its a good thing my palm can't read or surf the web.

Randy-

It looks like you have the palm in my SECOND picture on post #28, NOT the highland mealybug. (post#27 IS the highland m., if you look close you can notice the long petiole with the leaves at the end.)

Yours is cool too! Thats why I have one planted also and have most seen it as the "cape masoala form".

Oh yeah- Its "orange" because someone pulled the leaf base off! :P

My little redneck can't compete with most of these - yet. But last Saturday I planted it near its teddybear cousin which is already developing its furry "coat". I hope they encourage each other.

This is what is being sold as Dypsis hovomandrina which I think is the same as the Masoala lastelliana. I have 3 of them. Not as slow as some have said either.

Best regards

Tyrone
