Oraniopsis

A couple of Hyophorbe lagencaulis a bit battered by the Sydney winter, although it looks ;like they are going a little bit better now than a couple of years ago comparing to Mohsen's photo earlier in the thread.

Archontophoenix purpurea towering above. There are a couple of large Pritchardia maidenianas you can just see to the right, with Chamaerops to the left.20171027_111036_resized.thumb.jpg.ec59eb

Sabal mauritiformis

20171027_111235_resized.thumb.jpg.17ca7c

There's a Copernicia hiding in here. Couldn't see a label and I can't ID at that size but potentially could be baileyana.20171027_112123_resized.thumb.jpg.161e88

Labelled as Ceroxylon parvifrons but clearly another species with the plumose leaflet arrangement. Possibly C. vogelianum?20171027_112247_resized.thumb.jpg.102bd0

Kentiopsis magnifica

20171027_120208_resized.thumb.jpg.abedfc

Couldn't find a label but this big climber might be a Plectocomiopsis himalayana?

20171027_115750_resized.thumb.jpg.44e88b

That's all from me.  There were many more amazing palms I didn't get a shot of.  A couple of huge Ceroxylon alpinums and Parajubaea cocoides were too tall to capture properly, and I didn't get the chance to go through the whole gardens but the palm sections alone are more than worth the visit.

Hi Tim

Sydney does have the best  chamaedorea collection in a Botanic Gardens in Australia by a lot.. Wollongong Botanic Gardens are nor far behind but their

PALMETUM is 4 years old and is still young.....more plantings in both gardens this summer.

Regards

Colin

In addition to his generosity, Colin is too modest.  Who do we credit for the superb Chamaedorea collection ?  Why....it is Colin Wilson !  :greenthumb:

Hi Tim, 

The seed  for Ceroxylon parvifrons came from rarepalmseed label as above.

Many palms collectors have looked at those Ceroxylon including those from overseas, hopefully someone can identify them so the label can be updated

regards

Hi Colin. Yes I think this batch of seed from RPS got spread around the globe as parvifrons and are now all turning plumose.
