Man. My wife parks in front to swap out the kids and Ando just happens to catch it on camera :)

Pete, it's a 68 and I have never drove or ridden in it. No joke. My wife is the car girl and I'm the plant guy. She use to build old Ford Mustangs with her dad growing up. This GTO was her uncles car. 

Ok, back to palms. What a great tour. So glad Jeff opened up his garden and Ando was able photograph it. Jeffs garden is one of my all time favorites -regardless of climate.

Concur about the garden, and thanks for your tourguiding, along with Bill.

Oh, file this one in the Good-Ass-Times file . . .

The garden, of course, is simply one of the most amazing, interesting and beautiful collections of palms, succulents, cycads and other ornamental plants that can be grown in California (along with many that I was sure could NOT be grown here, either).  But the photography should be applauded as well... not easy to photograph so many plants with such contrasting lighting, colors, shapes and sizes... makes my photos of the place seem rather dull in comparison, though the subject material was hard to beat.  Kudos to both Jeff and Pando.  And thanks again to Jeff and Christine for inviting all of us to see this extraordinary collection.

I really enjoyed all the photos of the garden showing what is possible in a climate similar to mine.

Crazy nice, thanks for sharing the photos. Very nice balance of dryer land plants and palms. One question, how wet is Jeff's area. Does it require lots of water?? Some of the

rainforest area looks like Hawaii.

The rainforest area was WET. But the unpaved trails were not muddy at all, no clay, and it looks like a good well-draining black soil back there full of organics.

One of the downsides in living in an excellent microclimate here is that lots of water is still needed to maintain this, otherwise it will revert back to barren native California landscape rather quickly.

Thank you both, Mr. Brusseau and Pando for this great thread! 

The garden is simply unbelievable! When I was watching the pictures of the rainforest section,

I couldn't believe that it is IN California - no offense! The arrangement of anything is just breathtaking,

the photos themselves are masterpieces, too!

Thank you very much!

best regards

It was our pleasure to open the garden to the Palm Society of Southern California and we thank all those members that attended.

It had been ten years since our last tour with this group and the garden has changed dramatically in that time.

I believe Ando has done an exceptional job of capturing the garden and he has some very exceptional photography skills!

This garden like most is a work in progress and we find great joy designing, installing , studying and maintaining the extensive plant palette.

We are blessed with an exceptional microclimate and soil strata and have done our best to choose complimentary plants that will excel in our garden.

Thanks to all that have visited either in person or by way of the photos  and shared in the experience of Cuesta Linda!

Jeff, great garden.  One thing that really jumped out to me was the health of each individual plant.  Little if any brown tips. Bromiliads weren't burned nor showing dead leaves.  Remarkable attention to detail. 

Curious about 2 Beccariophoenix madagascariensis I saw in your garden. How old are they? How large at planting?  One of my favorite species. 

Thanks again for opening up the place to us all.

And this concludes the gallery for now, but there may be more coming later as I go through the photos I took.

Again, these pictures were posted WITH PERMISSION. A very special thanks to Jeff for allowing me to post the pictures here.

 

Great photos! Spectacular garden! I wonder how they water that thing (and whose water they use--local, Colorado, or NorCal?)

Josh, the rules were quite clear. We all heard them prior to the tour. "Stay on the paths". Not sure why you felt the need to get your photo next to this Jubaea.

I have been privileged to be able to tour Jeff's garden twice the first time in 210 and the second time in 2013 ! both times i have been blown away by the amazing palm collection and the landscaping and color co ordination is amazing ! Great pictures Pando !

The garden certainly has grown since 2013 and i see that the Ceroxylon Q is trunking at last !

Thanks everyone for the comments, I'm glad you liked the pictures. Jeff's garden quite incredible.

The images I posted earlier was a fraction of the total number of shots I took over there. I'll be posting some more of them here for your enjoyment over the next few days/weeks.

      JANUARY 17, 2019 BANQUET, MEETING AND AUCTION


       
      The PSSC’s annual banquet, meeting and auction will be held on January 17, 2019, at the Sherman Library and Gardens, located at 2647 Pacific Coast Highway, in Corona del Mar, Orange County. http://www.slgardens.org/home (949) 673-2261

       
      We held our banquet last year here and loved it so much we came back again this year. Wonder why we loved it so much? Oh, count the ways! A great and growing palm collection, which includes palms that PSSC members have donated. A great and growing collection of other plants, as the garden management scours the globe for great material.

       
      And, plenty of free parking, handicapped access, an elegant dining room, and relatively easy access by pretty much everyone in southern California. What’s not to love?

       
      This year’s speaker will be Dr. Larry Noblick, from Montgomery Botanical Center in Miami, Florida. Dr. Noblick is a noted palm biologist, taxonomist, plant surveyor, author and palm explorer. He’s also a PSSC member. Imagine Indiana Jones, with a Ph.D in biology from the University of Chicago. Aside from dozens of articles, monographs, etc., in publications ranging from our beloved Palm Journal to academic journals, Dr. Noblick has also been to all the fascinating places we dream of visiting, including, but not limited to: Madagascar (twice), Brazil (13 times), New Caledonia, Paraguay (3 times), the Seychelles, Belize and many more. He’s the guy who re-organized the genus Syagrus. He’s been there, done that, and seen more than most of us palm nuts can even imagine. Serious palm nuts are excited.

       
      The cost of the banquet is $58 per person. We recommend you sign up soon, as we expect this event to sell out, like last year.

       
      You can sign up with PayPal via the PSSC’s website http://palmssc.org/2019-pssc-banquet-sherman-library-and-garden-1/. You can also mail checks, payable to the PSSC  to @DoomsDavecommunicate via PM for address.

      The PSSC’s much ballyhooed meeting at the home and garden of Patrick and Jolynn  Mahoney was attended by more than 100 - some say up to about 150 - palm nuts, spouses children and friends on Saturday November 17, 2018.

      Space. The final frontier, even (especially!) if you have a palm garden. Your palmy artistic ambition often exceeds the physical dimensions at your disposal. Most of us find ourselves, sooner or later, measuring in feet to avoid being too close to a property line, or encroaching on something else, or, heaven forbid, interfering with utility wires. We find, fall in love, then try to shoe-horn it in. If we can.

      Now imagine a garden that seems divorced from such piddling concerns, with two acres of reasonably level land. A garden where its owner falls in love with, say, 60-plus foot tall Royals, and acquires them, and has the trucks, trailers and a trained, experienced crew to properly remove, haul and plant such magnificent monsters. A garden with an owner who bought a palm tree nursery to supply it. A garden that makes you forget that you just drove along teeming freeways in one of the world's largest conurbations to get there. A garden that makes first-time visitors stare in open-mouthed wonder, like I did when I first saw it about 10 years ago. A garden that lives up to its owners' sobriquet, "Lost World" and you happily lose yourself in its engulfing tropical greenery.

      The garden of Pat and Jolynn Mahoney at 191 South Cobblestone Lane, Anaheim, California, in Orange County, is such a place. They own and operate West Coast Arborists, which, among much else, digs and moves large palms, and trims, trains and maintains trees all over Southern California. Mr. Mahoney grew up in Tustin, started trimming trees right out of high school and never stopped. 
        Come and give your wearily over-stimulated senses some fresh exercise. Crane your neck to see the tops of the tall palms. Gaze below at koi ponds with koi like swimming Chinese lanterns. Check out the terra-cotta paths and eight waterfalls. And see, everywhere you look, plants, plants and more plants. Palms, bromeliads, philodendrons and much more. Cycads include Encephalartos altensteinii, Encephalartos ferox, Encephalartos gratus, Encephalartos horridus, Dioon mejia and Ceratozamia robusta. Palms include Roystoneas (big), Caryota and many more. Take a deep breath and smell the air that smells the way only a tropical forest can. Listen to birds chirping, co-visitors laughing and the soughing of the wind through the palm leaves. The Mahoney garden was established in 1995 and the passage of 23 years makes it better and better.    This garden also includes a grand house, featured in an OC house and garden magazine, with, among much else, three exterior bathrooms. And lots of seating areas, all over.    So, come and join us on November 17, 2018 at the Mahoney's Lost World, and lose yourself in it for a while. Find old friends, and find new ones. Eat some potluck food, and maybe bid on some plants at the auction. Remember why you're in California in the first place.   POTLUCK. This will be a potluck meeting. Chicken will be provided; we greatly appreciate food donations from attendees. Salads, desserts, sandwiches (cut into pieces), appetizers, eggrolls, empanadas, etc. If you love it, so will we. If it's your grandma's favorite recipe, so much the better, and we'll love it whether your grandma came from Boston, Baden-Baden, Saigon or Guadalajara. If you make it, great; if you buy and bring, great too. What's better than great food, great company and a grand palm garden? Eat, look at the palms, and be merry.    AUCTION. There will be a plant auction at this meeting. Since the auction provides about half of the PSSC's funding we are grateful for the support of all donors. Donors can donate 100% to the PSSC (we sure love that) or 50/50. But, there are limits on time which require us - and everyone - to work together to make the most of this. Time is limited, so we try, if we can, to get a minimum of $20 per plant, or more. Accordingly: (a) the best plants are rare palms in 1 - 5 gallon pots; (b) we also accept other plants, especially cycads; and (c) we also accept palm-themed objects d'art. We will do larger palms, up to 15 gallons and larger, but they sometimes don't bring the prices donors want. Please, no common palms, such as Phoenix canariensis and robellenii, Trachycarpus fortunei, Sabals, etc. or other common plants. On the other hand, if you have something common you want to re-home, bring it, and we can use it as a raffle plant. Or, just give it to someone who will love it.   DIRECTIONS: From the west (LA, OC, etc): Exit 91 Freeway go right to Imperial Hwy (Rte 90) south. From the east (Riverside), exit 91 Freeway go left on Imperial Hwy (Rte 90) South. Everyone:  Go right on East Santa Ana Canyon Road; go left (south) on Royal Oak Road; go right (west) on E. Crescent Drive; go left (south) on South Peralta Hills Drive, which makes a right (west) elbow-bend; the garden is at Cobblestone Lane and South Peralta Hills Drive.   AGENDA   9:30 A.M. - PSSC Board meeting (all members welcome) 10:30 A.M. - Self-guided tours of the garden 12:00 noon - LUNCH! 1:00 P.M. - General meeting 2:00 P.M. - Auction 4:00 P.M. - Adjourn
