This week we move to a new building and in its garden there is only one type of palm ( I think "Livistona australis ???")  ...they seem very happy :)

Yes, look at the underside of the leaf, if it is the same color as the top of the leaf it is the common Bangalow.

If the underside is silvery it is the much less common Alex.

PS: Is it a real W. filifera?

Bunnings can provide a few surprises my pockets are never deep enough to take advantage.

You are right Pip, they are expensive there...$180.00 for  D. Decari ones...Aldi had good prices...

Pal, already bought small one of D. Decaryi and planted at front yard...no room for more and prefer small ones so my wife will get use to them and their ultimate sizes  in time ;) 

maybe that one is W.robusta?

I was in Campbelltown , 60 km in south west Sydney...

While I was driving I notice this palm...I think it is a  Roystonea regia?

I couldn't believe that because this area is very cold compare to Sydney and even had record low temperature as -6C...

If its is Roystonea regia then there should be much more hope for my area which I am sure is not colder than Campbelltown ,

so is this a Roystonea regia if not what is it then?

or maybe Royal palm is more cold Hardy than I think it is?

Thanks Stelios

I thought it might be a foxtail but the fronds were different ( see attached pic) and also the narrower crownshaft compare to the trunk made me think of Royal...

but if it is foxtail even more amazing and good news for me as there should be colder than where we are :)

Is this Howea forsteriana or Howea belmoreana?

The drooping leaflets are forsteriana, the habit looks like belmoreana, are there any hybrids forstmoreana or belsteriana? :indifferent:

There are hybrids, at least in habitat, but they are extremely rare.

If it indeed is a hybrid, the rate of success with those seeds would be pretty low. A study lead by Babik found that practically all hybrids found on the Lord Howe Island were first generation hybrids. Across the entire island they found only three F2's - all backcrossed to the original species (Babik W, et al. 2009).

I would wonder if it is hybrid how did it grow there? my guess is it should be normal Kentia not even  belmoreana ...but I will take seeds next time I will be there...

The issue is even with normal  forsteriana  seeds it would take for ever ( 11 months so far and no sign of germination for me) also I would never know when the seeds are riped, sometimes they are green and still riped!

I was in a friends home in Gordon for a birthday party and I was drunk in the bathroom...but that didn't stop me for searching for palms and I just saw this 3head beauty which I believe should be a Hedyscepe canterburyana ?...Fibally I saw this somewhere rather than Sydney Botanic Garden...should be more than 50 years or more ?

Thanks Steve and Pal,

I didn't know H.Belmoreana could be in multi headed?

It's not very common, just a freak of nature. There was a double headed one at Darling Harbour.

There's a multi headed H belmoreana at the Geelong Botanic Gardens. From what I understand it is created due to a response from some kind of trauma to the growing point.

Yes, that certainly is a foxtail. I have seen quite a few foxtails and royal palms growing well in Sydney, yet almost no nurseries seem to stock them! 

Anyone from Sydney know if any other nursery besides Palmland stock foxtails?
