That Chambeyronia houailou is STUNNING :drool:

Dean - do you have Chambeyronia lepidota growing there . Also can Hedyscepe grow or is it too warm at night ???

Nope, no C. lepidota. From past experience with that one in SoCal, I think you need to start as a younger man. :)

I don't have Hedyscepe in the ground, but they have been in pots for for 5+ years, and from what I can tell would have no trouble doing fine here.

Perfumes of the garden... these gardenia bloom all year round keeping the garden smelling nice 24/7! The yellow flowers are from a "pua kini kini" which means the ten cent flower in hawaiian because they would sell them for ten cents a piece. Next is Tabernaemontana and the one after that was sold as pakaki... we also have a night blooming jasmine that I started from a cutting. Now it's 10ft. tall and blooms every month around the full moon. Of course we have a champaka I already posted it!

Dean and Angela,

I can see why palm enthusiasts seem to end up in Hawaii. Everything looks spectacular! Given the amount of work it takes to clear the brush and dig the holes the results must be very satisfying. I especially like the Dypsis lastelliana. I planted out D. lastelliana next to D. leptochielos a couple of years ago, both from 1 gal. The lastellliana has an overall height of about 6 ft, 1/3 that of the leptochielos which is now flowering.

Again, really good job and I am enjoying the photography and commentary.

Robert

Not every place is nice and green.... this area was cleared by Dean recently and this is the ground we have to deal with here... mostly lava!! People who live in Hawaii who like to grow plants have a running joke...

"Got Dirt?" Some people have to bring dirt in. Like Dean did for the lawn.

Angela, primo shots of too many choice plants and palms to mention, but that Dictyocaryum :drool: at five years in the ground is the icing on the cake for me. I really love the lawn, a great setting for that part of gardens, what a play to lay and take it all in. Very healthy, colourful, inspiring gardens ,keep on posting now and into the future, very enjoyable. All Best Pete

Thank you, thank you, thank you. That dabaoensis has grown quite a bit and is spectacular. Looks like you have 'slashed and burned' quite a bit around it.

Angela, besides having an ecstatic garden moment in that photo, you don't like those Neoveitchia storckii up above?

I like their crown shaft, but overall they always look like junk.

No worries, I was soaking it in. So that up-shot with the dark coloration and fuzz is E. precatoria also? I've never seen that.

Here is what it looks like almost every morning... it is sunny!! You can see the clouds building up in the fourth pic. By noon it is overcast because we are below the cloud forest. (Norm and Voltaire live in the cloud forest) We usually get to see sunsets and by 9pm like clockwork, you always see stars, lots and lots of stars because the clouds clear out.... unless there is a storm. Some advice for visitors to the Big Island, don't go to the beach or snorkeling without sunscreen if you want to see some gardens the next day :lol:

Just for you I took some more pics just now. It's not fuzz, it's a left over old frond. In the other post, the one peering above the other plants is different than the one in the trunk picture. It's so thick in there that I didn't realize it at the time.

These are pics of the small one. The first pic is of the trunk with all the old left over frond stuff. You can see the variegation in the others pics. The difference in the overall color is just the lighting.

I think I have a new favorite palm!!!

Bentinckia condapanna :drool: there's three of them. We think it was three years ago that they were planted and they weren't trunking yet.

On your Dictyocaryum lamarckianum post I said that they were one of 2 stops that I had to make on every visit to you and Dean. Now you know the other compulsory stop.

Here is one of your condapanna babies from Fall 2009 - compare to your post above and see how much growth you have had in just 2 years.
