How Bout a 'Color' thread?

Recommended Posts

realarch

We need a bit of color on the board. Post away!

I'll start with some Calyptrocalyx in the garden, all going off at the same time. Understory gems for any garden

if they will grow for you. 

C. leptostacyhs, C. pachystachys, and C. pachystachys 'mottled.'

Gosh those Calyptrocalyx and the Heterospathe look awesome! Coconut looks good too!

Here's a new leaf on Dypsis sp. "Maroantsetra":

Oh what a beautiful thread!  My kind of thread, for sure!

Tim, we saw these all over in the forest on Sainte Marie, wonder who they are?  :)  Plenty of color in these little understory palms.  Was this D. forticifolia?

20151112_160354.jpg[20151112_160354.jpg.htmlI am visiting my parents in PA for a few days and we made a stop to Longwood Botanical Gardens in SE Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia.  It has to be among the nicest botanical gardens out there.  I have a large number of photos to share, but I will leave you this one photo, taken in the conservatory for now.URL]

Conservatory palms always look so perfect not being bothered from wind- love it. Here's one from the Missouri Botanical Gardens Conservatory (called the "Climatron"): they have a gorgeous to-die-for royal palm in there with a brown looking crownshaft.

Okay, I was out of town on my smart phone, so the pic unloading was obviously unsuccessful.  Here is some impressive (!) color I saw at Longwood Gardens.
