I was also planted this medemia argun the other day.

It took me a couple years of searching high and low to find one. this palm is considered very rare and very hard to find and I' was excited to get this little guy in the ground. the previous seedlings I had a couple years ago all died :( I did not shift them into deep pots since they have such a long tap root and all declined and died. Lesson learned...!!!

enjoy the pictures :)

any one else growing this tree?

finally got around to planting this Dypsis carlsmithii in the ground. It was a long overdue project for sure. that Carlsmithii thread a few weeks ago gave me some motivation to move on mine.

here is my little guy.

enjoy the pic's

they are pretty rare sine they were discovered only several years ago in the Sudan desert. I have tried to get my hands on one for a very long time. I now have 200 seeds and they are sprouting like mad :)

Ok, I decided I need to come up with an official garden name for my " up and coming Vista garden". Since I have been planting this last 2 years it's becoming quite the botanical wonderland here in Vista California, USA.

 

I thought it wold be fun to see what names you palm friends can come up with. I'm wide open to suggestions.

 

since I'm up on a hill with a great view I thought of "Fair View garden"

any other suggestions?

whoa!

that sounds great :)

 

It seems like most folks have their gardens named after a region or a palm?? I'm still racking my brain on a good solid name.

there will be a 2 acre nursery attached to this garden as well.

To add to this due to the topography changes I may suggest "Fairview Valley Gardens" ?

 

Or maybe even "Secret Rock Gardens" .. ^_^ for the special area... and of course, everyone will want to know where the secret rock is..

besides racking my brain for a good garden nursery name I've been busy working on leveling and filling the planters with dirt. this mini project has turned into a major production.

I have slowed way down on planting stuff in the ground because of this head ache of a project.
