A)38yr old queen palm

B)23 yr old maxima king palm

C)45 yr old jubea chilensis

D)60 yr old kentia

E)20 yr old dypsis decaryii

F)15 yr old copernicia baily

G)50 yr old acoelorrhaphe wrightii

H)20 yr old tri-bear

I)50 yr old "blue" med. fan palm

J)25 yr old brahea armada

K)55 yr old canary island date

 

 

Len & Zaric, you can play since you were here today and know what is coming:P

Jubaea is the only palm on that list that would need a hole that size other than maybe a huge CIDP.  However a CIDP that size isn't worth the trouble to transplant in your garden so it has to be a Jubaea.

Hmm. For plant?

I'd say (G) or (I) Acelleraphe or Med fan; both clumpers might need hole like that.

How about (z) a nice, juicy J-opsis caffra? Another rad clumper, too! :lol:B):drool:

Jubaea. It's only competition would be a 25-yr-old Copernicia fallaensis but I don't see that on the list.

Josh, did you also install those nifty walkways and curbing? Holy cow, your garden will be - wait for it - "epic" in PT speak.

Hi Meg,

It took a crew working full time for a month to complete the pathway project. It was a major undertaking to say the least.

This whole "Vista garden" project has been super fun but very tiring as well.

I already had a big seeding Jubaeopsis caffra craned in 2 yrs ago.:wub:

I think these are the only possible candidates that Josh would be interested in growing there. The others aren't rare enough. :mrlooney:

C)45 yr old jubea chilensis
F)15 yr old copernicia baily
G)50 yr old acoelorrhaphe wrightii
H)20 yr old tri-bear

Looking at the shape of that hole, and the location of it in relation to the pathways, I'd still vote for G.

That said, I have the A)38yr old queen palm available for you if you want to dig that thing up and crane it over there Josh.  :P

I think it will be,

B)23 yr old maxima king palm

My reasoning is this palm and the queen palm are the only palms you listed that have an age other than 0 or 5 in its age, so the ages of the queen and king are more specific!

How do you feel ? Josh? do you still have only ten fingers ? or some extra?
Did you dig the grave by anticipation because: "lots of round-up"? We'll miss you but we'll never forget you. :)
