About 9 feet tall.  The soil should be pretty soft.  I'll be moving the deck railing at the same time.

Just to be clear, this is not one of the typical date palms that you see around San Diego.  It grows to a smaller size, and has faster growth.  This is a beautiful palm, that grows well here.  It has a nice yellow knobbed trunk as you prune it, and will retain more silver than most other date palms.

 I got eager, and dug it out.

Sitting in a 15 gallon and ready to roll.  These are worry free growers.

Thanks Dan!

 

Yeah, it's a good sized plant.  It has been a fast grower.  It was 2.5 feet tall when I planted it around 2 years.  Maybe the healthiest plant in the yard.

Carl, I had a great time, and thank you for showing me around.

I'd love to see some updates on your Rhopalostylis "Nacho-cheesemanii" over the years (as well as your other new editions)!

Yeah, I put in a Hillebrandii that I got from Bill at Multiflora a few weeks ago.  Just happened to be a little better fit for the area.

I do not (believe it) either; it dismissed all its previous leaves! That's a BIG transplant shock even for a Phoenix...

This was simply poor planning on my part.  I didn't get it into the ground and was called out of town for a week and it didn't get watered :indifferent:.  Not to mention the extremely warm temps around that time and small root ball.  There is a green spear and it is getting solid in the ground, there is hope!
