In Dronten at 52°32’N ??? That’s further north than my location! Unbelievable … :huh: And my (still juvenile, 12 years young) Waggies produce only two or three new leaves per year, and this at 49°23’N … :blush:

Wow!   Those waggies look awesome…I planted four 3 gallon size this season. I hope in my hot and humid climate they will grow to look as nice.

Hi Pal, I protect my palms in winter maybe that explains the difference in growth rate. ;) I planted my tallest Waggy in March 2004 with trunk size 10 cm. Its trunk is now 1.90 m. I planted 2 actually, one of them died unfortunately in the big freeze of 2011, when we had 2 nights of -17 and one night of -22˚C.

Hello Peter, when I first saw your photos I thought they were taken in Lugano or so, it’s really incredible :greenthumb::greenthumb::greenthumb: – Yes, the winter 2011/12 (esp. the long snow-free freeze of February 2012) killed also in Heidelberg almost all Trachys.

Nice garden Peter, the lawn is so green… just getting green grass here since it’s so dry this summer. 

They have a knack for grass in NL. 

Stunning Palms. I grow several wagnerianus from seed at the moment. They are to young to plant them. I can only hope they will look like that.

Alcibiades, so does Washington state, LOL!  

I have just one wagnerianus and its not as slow growing as one would think. Planted a one gallon three years ago, its done very good, yours will too.

Awesome display. 
Big waggie here in the garden doing perfect as well... growing speeds has been picked up the last few years. 
This spring I replanted a smaller one next to the bigger one to make a nice group. It is has a bit yellow because a very dry first 6 months this year, should be better next year.

      I see some people say Dypsis Lucentes usda zone 10 and up.I disasagree with that at least here in Florida.
      In St Augustine by Aligator farm entrance you can see many of them.I talked to the zoo and they told me they planted them maybe 15 yrs ago as 5-7 gallons by now they are tall maybe 12 feet or more.You can see them from A1A. But also you see some in downtown around the belive or not.This is usda zone 9a .But if this is not enough,I live in Jacksonville at oceanway which is east of 95 ,we have on Pulaski rd zip code 32218 by church for minimum 10 yrs  about 10 -12 feet tall. planted right by entrance the wall.  And if this is still not enough at Jacksonville Airport at Hilton has at pool backside of the building w/o any protection beside it planted right by the building.So I think if you place it on sunny side and close to building it can tolarete all the way to Jacksonville. I don’t have any idea about 8b zone like west of Nort Florida or Ga …Also I know a person listed close to Jacksonville airport she planted a Dypsis decaying “ triangle palm “ back in 1990 right by her house.It’s made it eversince and it’s way taller than her house.She protected at beginning heat pad etc .She has some photo at palmtalk . I have 2 of them I never heated them ,but covered however I can’t cover anymore they are out of reach .Over 12 feet or so.I got them from Home Depot 3 or 4 years ago.Even leaves get touched they come back nicely.Mine not planted by house but by fence and it get early sun till late afternoon sun…

      Are there distinguishing characteristics for this Trachy? I’ve read they have thicker trunks and bright yellow tips on their more rigid leaf segments?

      Don’t talk much about my Needle palm but it’s really grown into a nice three larger, two smaller clump of trunks...three trunks are about 12” and the other two are smaller but it’s gone from about a 3’ high by 2’ wide in-ground experiment in 2014 to a 5x 5 picture of health today...what a fantastic cold hardy palm. Aside from a bit of protection its first winter, it’s faced every winter on its own. Surprisingly, the main trunk died a couple years after planting but the suckers prospered...
      First winter:


      Somewhere in the middle:


      To present:




      Anyway, sitting at the base of a slight slope, it gets a fair share of runoff and I dug some depressions around it to collect even more water...it’s good for the basjoo, too...I highly recommend Needles but keep the needles in mind where pets and children are concerned...they’re vicious...but in the right zone and situated in the right place, a reliable and dependable choice for cold hardy palm growers.

      This past Sunday my husband and I visited Naples Botanical Garden for our anniversary. Among the many palms we saw was this (these?) apparent twin Sabals that are joined at an extra wide trunk ~5' tall, then separated into two separate crowns. I saw no plaque identifying what species of Sabal it (they?) are or anything about them. I am not sure of the species but the sight was so unusual I took the following photos. I have seen photos of solitary Sabals that split into two crowns due to damage but they have normal solitary trunks up to the split. This palm has an extra wide trunk with a "valley" between two halves all the way up to where the crowns separate, as if two palms grew together to form one. Very odd. Anyone else seen this?
