Rhopalostylis sapida 'chatham island'

Recommended Posts

MattyB

Chatham Island is the more robust sapida that grows faster and takes more sun. Darold was nice enough to send me a bunch of these last year and as Summer is fast approaching I'm thinking I wanna get them out of the greenhouse and into the nice cool shade. They seem to do much better on my shadey porch than in the hot greenhouse but I only need a couple of them, not 10! Anyway, I've got several of them to give away and pass along the generosity that Darold has started. Come on by and get one or two if you want. They're in 4" pots and could use a little TLC, but hey, they're free!!!!!! PM me.

six one nine 206-7782

I'm stealing this photo from Paul. I think one of these is Darold's mother plant.

Are you going to the Quail Garden's palm and cycad sale this weekend? I would be interested in providing a couple of them a nice cold/socal climate here in Vista. :)

Grab 'em while you can kids....I bought a few tiny ones home last year, only a couple of centimetres high and they have survived filthy heat, humidity, freezes and a flood. And not one fatality.

This version of rhopy couldn't handle south florida, could it? If I can grow a kentia, I still don't have a chance, right? :rolleyes:

Thanks for the more accurate pic Troy.

I'm not shipping these, you'll have to give me a call and come on by. Sorry for the late response Carl, I didn't see this until now.
