Scott, those maroon vestiarias are always worth a second and third look. Nice.

Archontophoenix purpurea - photo doesn’t really do it justice.

Agree and this leaf is a lot darker than usual. Plus this is one of my fav threads :)

I planted it about 15 years ago. At the time it had just developed its first ring of trunk from memory. If you look closely, it has just put out its first aborted inflorescence now. Everything is slow in Melbourne but this one is in fairly poor soil with no supplemental irrigation anymore over the last 6-8 years, so it really moves very slowly these days. Not such a problem when the nice features stay at eye level for a long time.

Tim, looking at your post, I feel like I'm living in a monochrome palm world at home!  Beautiful specimens.  I assume the first palm with the beautiful tiger striping on the crownshaft is one of the New Caledonia genera, but am not able to nail it down.  Our color palette isn't as wide because our species palette isn't as wide here, so I'll use that as my excuse for not being able to id it.

I could be wrong but I think it is bassilinia

Hi,

bullpen is filling up but still not respresentable, so we go with a classic (again)...

Hey Tracy, I will admit the color pallet here is probably more varied and vibrant, but looking at photos of your garden and others in SoCal,

(and everywhere else), I’ve always thought the color variety was quite impressive. Companion non-palm planting adds so much as well.

Here are the ID’s for the photos:

Basselinia eriostachys, Pinanga speciosa, Clinostigma samoense, Pinanga maculata, and Bentinckia condapanna.

Scott, I got lazy.
