Nice Jason!

Thanks Jim. While these might be a “common” palm here in Hilo, it’s still a favorite of mine and I almost need to pinch myself when I consider that I now live in a place where I can grow these.  I have several planted around my yard here but this is my largest. Not a fast growing palm, even here.

Yes Jason, your color palette has increased exponentially in the new garden!  It has to be hard to decide what to allocate space to at times.  I'm sure that some of the things which you prized here are somewhat ho-hum plantings when considering for your Hawaii garden.  Since we are talking Hawaii, I'll share that I love the color on the rachis and underside of the leaves of this Pritchardia.

Allocating space is definitely a challenge since I am on a limited size lot (1/2 acre) and plants grow so fast here.  One trip to a mature garden showed me how big these "big dypsis" get here!  They grow to jurassic proportions here which is exciting, but also challenging in it's own way. 

That's a great looking Pritchardia!  Do you know what species it is?

Ironically I bought it after leaving your Fallbrook house when we had the Southern Cal Palm Society meeting there.  It was represented to be Pritchardia flynnii.  I've posted pics here and some say it resembles their P minor at a young stage.  I'll just have to wait and see, but I do like it whatever it turns out to be!

Rain and wind brought the oldest frond off one of my Dypsis prestoniana.  It revealed lots of color when I went outside this morning.  Fortunately nothing was crushed by the downed frond!  It was heavy when I went to remove it.

This is one of Merc's maroon Areca vestiaria's , I like the beautiful yellow on the older leaf.

Oh, and how long the purple lasts on the new one.

It is starting to cluster already.

Hello there,

since a strong green color and the simply beautiful shape of the palm species in general got me hooked into this great hobby,

I hope you don`t mind presenting this one...

An even through our winter constantly growing leave of my young C. samoense...

Best regards from Okinawa -

Lars

By the way, someone could tell me why these butias produce red and violet leaves.

Mauser: I can't answer your question, but I suspect you'll get requests for seeds from this Butia variety should any become available!! ;)

Here’s one of my Chambeyronia hookeri greeting my brother from Ohio.

new leaf on Burretiokentia dumasii, not super vibrant, but nice any way. Seems to be getting more colorful  as the palm matures. Or it could just

be a seasonal thing.

Hmmm Colin, I didn't know B. dumasii had a red emergent leaf. Still learning new stuff.

Chamby hookeri this morning., little more vibrant than the B. dumasai, I didnʻt even notice it until I looked up. Been raining all night.

Tim, not sure if any other Buretokentias have red new leaves or not. There are a couple of pictures in palmpedia encyclopedia of dumasii with reddish new leaves.

Another spectacular leaf Colin. 

I have B. vieillardii, hapala, and grandiflora, none of which have a red emergent leaf.

Tim, I think B. dumasii is the only one with a red emergent , got a few one gallons from Jeff a while back, a real easy grow here. I have a small grandiflora, which

is painfully slow. Maybe one leaf a year. 

Lots and lots of slow rain here for the past couple of weeks. lookin green
