Little bit of seasonal C. hookeri red, adorning the mailbox.  Starting to fade a bit after a few days. Valley shot with Pritchardia bakeri habitat in back left.

Great to see the habitat!  I'm going to give my little seedling of P bakeri a try here in Leucadia (thank you Matt & Colin).  My color contribution is my Dypsis heteromorpha captured right at the golden hour of light in sunset; a closeup to show off the fuzzy color against the green leaves.

Archontophoenix Alexandrae var. Chocolate?

20180107_133730-774x1032.thumb.jpg.a885c

I've had these palms for a few years, but I'm sure it's the first time the crownshaft has gone this weird intense chocolate brown colour (not its usual decayed leaf base colour), the other side of the crownshaft (which doesn't get any sun on it) is the usual green... nothing to worry about, I imagine/hope?

This is a little Dypsis decaryi that I rescued from a footpath where it had self sown in full sun.

It was stunted but has recovered very well.

The old photo bombing cat does not add scale but distorts it and makes the plant look much bigger than it actually is.

I'm a bit reluctant to add my humble offering after the previous fare but not it won't last I expect it to all go green soon.

I just stripped off all of the old dead boots from our Cyphoenix nucele.

It is much better, there is never anything good under there just bad bugs.

Couple more, Iguanura wallichiana var. major and a Calyptrocalyx sp. I think it has some 'kainlas' in it, but not definitive.

Here's a little Bizzy in a pot,

P4050045.thumb.JPG.5be0528876975567e9715

and if brown counts as a colour (I don't think so) a little Dypsis bought as 'pink crownshaft'. I was very disappointed , no pink there or the crownshaft.

My Chambeyronia macrocarpa var. 'hookeri' just moved outdoors... and soon to be in-ground... now that there's a break in the rainy weather. I intend to use the shade from a Brachychiton discolor to protect it from the worst of the summer sun here.

Yeah, I got a chuckle out of of that too, although I would have no problems ‘expiring’ in that part of the garden.

Great photos everyone, keep em coming.

Couldn't help myself.......a couple more.

#1 is a Heterospathe, which one is still a mystery.

#2, the ole C. macrocarpa 'hookeri' which is still just as spectacular as ever. Photo from the second floor lanai.

Just got my Chambeyronia macrocarpa var. 'hookeri' into the ground before the rains expected later today. Since this is likely one of the few of this genus/species planted outdoors in inland NorCal, it's an experiment both in terms of summer sun and winter cold. It does get some overhead, tree canopy protection, so that may help both issues.:unsure: In the background are Sagos and a small Caesalpinia mexicana.

I personally like the color contrast of the leaves on my golden malayan dwarf coconut.

Is that normal for your palm? Mine doesn't seem to show that feature.

I have read some B. alfredii have purple petiole and rachis. But the color , at least on the rachis, fades back to green after a certain time/age. 

The petiole on my alfredii (planted, shown in the pic) have a purple haze. Here again, from what I have read, it's normal. And some alfredii present thus coloration. I have 20 others in pots and only 2 of them have the purple. The rest are coconut green.

ETA:

As a curious bit of info: all the alfies I received from floribunda, are all green. Beautiful, exquisite specimens to be sure.

The ones I have with the purple coloration are from Joe Palma.

Hi!

My two outdoor Chambeyronias seemed to agree to open their new leaves on the same morning, I couldn't resist taking a couple of photos, hope you like them ;)

A very slow growing Dypsis onilahensis solitary.  I'm guessing I've had it about 8 years, and while it has rings, they are tightly spaced.  Like the contrast of the white trunk and that chocolate colored lower rachis.

Little bit of Dypsis ovobontsira color. Starting to put out larger leaves. Hope this is keyed out correctly, but got it from Floribunda, so 

gona go with Jeff's Id. Didn't know D. ovo had a reddish new leaf.
