"Coco Queen" Super Parrot gets planted

Recommended Posts

nachocarl

I had the chance over the extended weekend to get a couple of projects done such as planting this little Coco Queen I dug up before our move. It had been in the ground for just over a year at our other place planted from a five gal. It decided to stall for a couple of months when I dug it up and put back in a pot, but it has since recovered and I wanted to get this in the ground. I finally picked a spot which of course was occupied by a Washy, regular birds and a few nandenias. Here is a before pic of the area along with the little Coco Queen in its pot. Also notice the small Chamaerops that was dug up from a very tight spot. I didn't get much of a root ball with the Chamaerops but it is in a pot and will hopefully survive.

I think it's a S. romanzoffianum (Queen) crossed with S. schizophylla.

Absolutely! It was just starting to crank at the old place when I pulled it out of the ground but she's permanent now. Josh, I do believe I got my Jub x butia from you a couple of years ago. I brought that one with me too. :) I like your inventory and would like to pick up a few things from you in the future, dypsis and such.
