Orange Gonphrena sp.

On our campos vegetation here in south Brazil we have the pink Gonphrena macrocephala.

It was very intersting for me to see the similarities and differences between the ´´campos de altitude´´ in Southeast Brazil and the campos from south Brazil. I found Allagoptaera campestris, Epidendrum elipticum. and a lot of species growing in both habitats...

El Hoagie with a beauty of a S.glaucescens

Great. Now Jack's gonna want my S.glaucescens too. :blink:

Actually, I bought a 1-leaf seedling S. glaucescens from Jeff Marcus about 6 or 7 years ago. It's probably large enough to plant at this point!

Alberto - the palm from the first stop is S. gouveiana.

Cool! My little one (probably 5 gal size) has overwintered out side for at least 3 years now...

I love those cloud shots Alberto!

My Copernicia alba is badly burned from the cold but should be fine. It's nice to see what it may return to one day.

Yes,I also like them. I hope your will grow fine now in the spring. I have 12 planted at the side of a pool. I hope this winter will be not to cold like you had in USA!!!

Alberto,

I really enjoyed seeing the photos you took of Syagrua glaucescens in habitat. It looks like a tough palm, and I see you collected pollen. What do you plan to cross it with?

Al in Kona

Meu novo amigo brasileiro, Alberto, obrigado pela partilha de tempo juntos durante a viagem Post.

During the Post Trip we especially got to know and share time with Alberto. He usually practiced his Enlish with me and I tried to answer using my limited Brazilian Portuguese language knowledge, sometimes having to mix in some Spanish and/or English to get the full meaning across! Thanks for sharing some great photos and memories of a great IPS Biennial trip 2010.

This photo is a huge S. deflexa in habitat.
