"FAKE" palms ? (Caryota)

Recommended Posts

The Silent Seed

What the heck ?

Was looking for Pisonia umbellifera variegata - and came across this gem…. (Copy and paste) from "piece of eden" - a blog about legoland? I guess we should start calling palms bananas. We've been hoodwinked!

There were several Caryotas (Fishtail Palms), which are not true palms--they are more like bananas--blooming once and dying, but leaving offsets behind to carry on.

Notwithstanding the incorrect information, there are some really nice pictures on that blog.

It's always best to keep an open mind until all the facts are in.

Palmaceae

When I was at the palm sale at Fairchild a couple weeks ago, we took a ride on the tram to take a rest from walking all day. The lady that was the guide was good until we came across some Serenoa repens, she said here are some Saw Palmetto, they are not true palms. I thought, really!! I think you should be a bit more knowledgeable about palms if you work as a guide in Fairchild.

Heh…. gotta give her credit though - they are NOT palms. They are PALMETTOS! ;)
