Around the Yard... I mean Garden

Recommended Posts

putu enjula

Somewhere on the volcano of Hualalai is our garden/Dean's garden. :D We are around 2100 ft. / 640m. Hualalai's elevation is 2,521m / 8,270 ft. and last erupted 1800-01.

I took these photos of Hualalai when I was near the beach. The last pic is a sunset from the garden...

We'd have an ocean view if we chainsawed all the Ohia!

A pair of D. lastelliana...

Another watermelon in the background... Clinostigma trunk pictured with what I like to call the ugly palm, Neoveitichia. I have NEVER seen a nice one of these... there's only mediocre or worse... if you have a nice one with no brown tipping please post it!!! There's a cycas debaoensis in there. Philodendron rojo..?

First a weed, the yellow ginger but it sure smells nice ... Now we move across the driveway... to the Dypsis that Dean would like to take a chainsaw to! Up the driveway is bamboo and a palm with a name I can't remember... that one still doesn't want to be messed with!!!

Amherstia nobilis, a random ti... my favorite tree... Champaca, Champaka, Michelia Alba, or A.K.A. Pak lan in Hawaii... this one was in a 7 gal when we got it about three years ago, now it is almost 15 ft tall.

Must be terrible to put up with that ugly Neoveitchia :lol:

Isn't that a Verschaffeltia splendida ? maybe not.. That bamboo looks familiar, could it be either Dendrocalamus minor var. 'Amoenus' or Bambusa chungii ?

The messy fern fronds you see everywhere are from the native Hapu'u... it is not self pruning :rage:

We don't always have the rainfall here! Kona is the dry side... sometimes we have to irrigate which can be a huge water bill because we are not on catchment. The only reason we get what we get is because we are on the volcano.

I'm serious about the Neoveitchia!! Have you ever seen a nice one or have a nice one? I think whoever created that palm messed up big time. :lol:

Verschaffeltia sounds familiar. My palm IDer is already fast asleep... Dean was working hard in the garden today!

That green climbing plant is ie ie. It has nasty sharp serrated leaves. This is an uncleared part of the property... it all looked like that originally.

Anyone who thinks gardening is easy in Hawai'i is free to come to our house and stay... all you have to do is clear some forest and dig some holes. :lol: We have probably over 200 (maybe 300) palms to get in the ground. We have a large container ranch! In the first pic, you can see the dead ie ie strewn everywhere and hanging from the Ohia trees. After you cut it from the base it takes many months for it to fall to the ground. Notice all the Ei Ei debris surrounding the ti and the mapu.

Wow looking really nice , I was really impressed with the hard work Dean was doing to clear the under brush out so he could plant, not a job I would want. That was two years ago when I d/off a palm for Dean coming along .greenthumb.gif

Isn't that a Verschaffeltia splendida ? maybe not.. That bamboo looks familiar, could it be either Dendrocalamus minor var. 'Amoenus' or Bambusa chungii ?

Right on both counts Wal. V. splendida, and B. chungii.
