Got my lady to take a picture w/me to show size of the Pseudophoenix vinifer.  For sure my favorite at this time.

Not any where near that old.  Here is a 2005 picture.  It went in the ground around  2001 when I built the lily pond.  My theory is that the rubber liner in the pond has some holes in it from my  60 lb part bull dog walking in the pond at least 10 years ago.  We have to top off the pond at least once a week and I'm sure that palm is sucking as much water from the leaks as it can.  Other than the leaks and over flow when filling that's the only irritation it gets.

Huh, so I guess Pseudophoenix has an extremely slow juvenile period until it starts trunking. Sounds like Coccothrinax or some Acrocomia’s. Lucky there with the pond fuel!

I will have to run with Kim and the quote from the late Pauleen Sullivan; my favorite is always changing, and likely the one I'm looking at.  So I will follow up with the other portion of the initial question regarding what is doing well in my garden.  It is also the palm that non-palm people who visit are most likely to ask about.  It is the Dypsis prestoniana.  20161024-104A4473.thumb.jpg.d5defa7fc554

While not always my favorite, that Dypsis prestoniana definitely is on some days, like this morning.  There is always something in competition for that top spot though.

Lately this Dypsis has been a favorite for me. This is a hybrid and while I’m not 100% on the ID, I believe it is Dypsis Hankona x Sp. Bef.

Right now,I'm loving me a Coccothrinax borhidiana hybrid. Fast desert grower, withstands upper 20's to 120F without any damage,and even fruits at a young age!
