You Legend Bill!!! I was hoping I could count on you too... You have done a great job!!!

I was hoping you would go Dypsis but wasn't 100% sure of it? I know you have many pinanga and Areca, some of them are probably decent palms too!! You made the right choice!!

I voted Dypsis even though I love Areca and Pinanga. I can grow way more Dypsis than the other two and where I'm moving won't be able to grow any Areca or Pinanga. So Dypsis wins.

Wrong again Tyrone, you will very likely be able to grow a few Pinanga. Areca is more of a challenge though might have a chance with Areca triandra if you ship in a large one. Here's Pinanga javana grown to perfection in NZ...

RPS has Pinanga polymorpha at present....

Whaaaaaaaaa?????????

Pinanga javana in NZ?????????!!!!!!!!!!!

I just bought one when I was in Carnarvon and thought that it was marginal in Perth. That's it, it's coming with me, and maybe my coronata and dicksonii as well. :)

You NZ guys never cease to amaze me. :)

Tim,

Whats the story on that alleged adangensis? Did you get it from Jeff? Oh! And about how tall is that maculata? Thanks :)

Jon, I acquired the Pinanga from a grower who wasn't quite sure what it was. He was calling it 'Thai mottled.' It looked like adangensis to me.

The P. maculate has grown nicely and I'd say it's about 7-8' tall. I did see your collection in an earlier post and thought they looked great.

All good about the small palms Comic, Moose will probably bump the thread in a few years and you can update us on you Pinanga's.... That is if they are still alive and you haven't filled the empty spaces with Dypsis..... that could be a bit embarrassing for you???? Obviously I hope that is not the case!!

It seems that the mainland USA doesn't have any Dypsis, Pinanga or Areca that they wish to showcase here.... Pity because I thought Florida would have a few Pinanga / Areca and Socal might have some Dypsis????

Here is my lastest entry into the battle... Getting into some rare stuff with this one.... I have id'd this as Dypsis hovitrendrina ( I think it has been sold under the name "highland redneck" ?). This palm is the oldest by far that I have ever seen with my own eyes... I don't actually know of any that even come close?? This palm is growing in South East QLD and obviously loving it!!

Thanks Tim! I'm really enjoying my tiny collection. You and others on here really have some amazing gardens and I really love seeing mature photos of some of that stuff.

I dug up a few old pinanga photos from my collection:

Pinanga caesia and Pinanga sp. 'blue seed' showing tons of color and mottling even as seedlings:

Don't know about a Dypsis with a purple leaf but it probably exists... I will have a think about it???

Meanwhile here is some food for thought... yes some Dypsis might be slow to trunk ( some are super fast as well ), but who needs trunk when you have this..... Dypsis prestoniana young and "teenage".... note my foot in the last pic, size 10!

Hey Ben, great photos, here's a Dypsis with a purple leaf, Ed

Hard to tell....

In Doranakanda garden, Areca is at home, and Pinanga belong to the shady parts of the garden, under the canopy of Cocos, Areca, jackfruit, mangosteen and mango

But I 'll have to plant all Dypsis seedlings we have: pembana, pilulifera, carlsmithi, ambositrae, sainte-lucei.... in the evening garden which has no existing canopy for bringing shade.

Dypsis includes an enormous variety of palm species, including giants as well as dwarf palms. We have many of them in our garden. However, I voted for Pinanga/Areca because those two genera have an amazing array of colors.

This speciosa was given to use by Bill Austin in 2010. He had thrown a bunch of seeds into a large pot which then grew into eight trees. We planted it as an experiment and expected some of them to stay small or die. Here they are 4 years later all have survived and are of approximately the same size.

Thanks to both teams for posting such amazing photos!

I have a real strong bias for dypsis, for one because I love Madagascar, but also because they are obviously more adaptable to cooler Summer climates. But I've had success so far with one pinanga species, pinanga philipinensis, it's growing even in our Winter, and I will try javana once more now that I have a greenhouse where I can grow one to some size before planting out.

Lee,

Fantastic photos! To me, nothing beats the color and form of a P. caesia. Your first photo of Pinanga sp. looks like P. malaiana to me (at least I hope that's what it is, since I have a few!)

It looks like Dypsis is winning the vote but the Pinanga / Areca folk are much better at posting great pics.

Thank you, you're absolutely right, Kennybenjamin, it means that obviously Areca-Pinanga should win.

I know by experience that vote doesn't always tell the truth :)

Unfortunately I also agree with this, Dypsis currently have 21 votes and only 6 of those people have posted pics.

We were hoping for a thread with heaps of great pics here and in that respect Pinanga and Areca thus far are winning.....
