It must be hell to live in a place where you can throw a handfull of palm seeds on the ground and they germinate!! Looking good Bo.

Bo,

It's really nice to see the Satranala. Do you have more than the one planted? And how long has this palm been planted out? Looking at your unknown Cyrtostachys species, it reminds me alot of C. kisu, but can't be for sure.

Wonderful pictures! I especially like the Lodoicea. Once you start getting seed from them, I think you will become a very rich man!

We were due for a BGL photo update. I'm really liking that Satranala, and your Kentiopsis Piersoniorum is looking nice. It's amazaing how different your Prestoniana looks in Hawaii than those grown here in So Cal.

Always look forward to photos from your garden Bo! Thanks for posting them.

My favorite is the one looking straight up the trunks of those three Clinostigmas. Just gorgeous!

The night photos really show off the palms beautifully, in particular the Pinanga maculata, Acanthophoenix rubra, and (wow!) the Cyrtostachys renda. But nothing beats the Kerriodoxa grove. Well, for today, anyway... :) Thanks for sharing your garden with us, always an inspiration.

I doubt Bo will see it seed (tho i wish him no ill will)as it takes about 30+ years...but clean livin and fresh air seems to extend ones happiness..if not life

and it needs a trunk first :rolleyes:

Thank you for taking the time to share those photos Bo! :drool: Oh man you've got some beautiful palms. I don't know if you can get a prettier palm than that Pinanga maculata. The bizarre leaf shape, the crownshaft color, the fruit display..... :drool::drool::drool:

Gary commented on the D. prestoniana and it seems that the leaflets are thinner at Bo's place than here in SoCal. Maybe a sunlight thing.

Just switch words in your above statement. Change "hell" to "heaven" and it would be more acurate! LOL

Great shots Bo. I will be out in your neck of the woods during the Ironman. I need to invite myself over.

Simply FANTASTIC! Thank you so much for sharing with us. Beautiful gardens, and palms! A garden you should be extremely proud of, and we should all be very jealous of for sure. :winkie:

I think my favorite of the ones you posted has to be the Dypsis pilulifera ("Orange crush") Always loved that orange crownshaft / just below the crownshaft.

Thank you everybody for your comments! :) I hope you don't mind me not addressing everyone individually, but only those who asked specific questions.

Len, no need to invite yourself! Much easier if I invite you! You're certainly welcome to stop by here in October. Let me know a week or so in advance.

Jeff, that Satranala was planted in 1997 from a 1G pot. We have about a dozen of them in the garden, all planted from 1G pots around the same time.

Troy, we currently have four Hedyscepe canterburyana in the ground, but they are all fairly small, maybe 2 ft/60 cm tall or so. Below is one of them, and also our lone Rhopalostylis baueri, which is planted out in full sun, and it's been there since September 2001. Again, certainly not impressive, but at least it seems to be happy. Our one and only R. sapida is fairly shaded and even smaller. Won't even post a photo of that one!

And Dick, throwing seeds on the ground would involve time and effor! We don't do that! :lol: Easier to just let the palms do their own thing! Left to right, volunteer seedlings from Areca vestiaria, Chambeyronia macrocarpa and Verschaffeltia splendida.

And the sunlight was just right this morning so was able to get a few more shots that weren't all that feasible yesterday afternoon/evening.

Bismarckia nobilis may not be a very unusual palm, but still one of my favorites!
