Got Time Lapse Photos of Whashingtonia?

Recommended Posts


Does anyone have before and after pics of their Washingtonia growing? It is interesting to see their growth after years.

I posted yearly photos in a thread this summer. From one gallon to 14' of trunk.

I do not have a before picture, but this is three years growth (~6' of trunk) from a volunteer seed.   Do not plant palms, especially Washingtonia near a septic tank!  Roots got down through the clean-out lid and had unlimited water and fertilizer (and clogged the inlet).

      A few from Weymouth on the south coast of England...

      So I am currently on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. You can cross over from Portsmouth on the ferry, which takes about 30 minutes. The island is a palm paradise in general, but the southeastern portion is almost like a mini Califronia. I will let the photos do the talking. All these CIDP and Washingtonia were planted tiny about 10-15 years ago now.

      I'll start with the Trachycarpus Fortunei...

      Phoenix Canariensis...

      Brahea Edulus...

      Brahea Armata...

      Going in heavy with the Washingtonia now. Excuse the sun in my eyes...

      There were several Jubaea Chilensis planted out...

      Butia Odorata...

      Chamaerops Humilis...

      Musa Basjoo...

      Cycas Revoluta...

      About a mile down the road we sat down to have lunch, as dolphin pods jumped out of the water while we ate...

      Off the coast of Niton, right next to the spot we ate at, I spotted a Washingtonia in a back yard. Unfortunately the garden was not really accessible to get photos, so I unlawfully hopped the fence to get some shots. Not really being one to follow rules, I am certainly glad I went over, since it turns out there were two Washies in that back yard...

      Massive palm updates from the Isle of Wight coming. I have barely scratched the surface here...

      Good afternoon! 
      Today I saw a Variegated Washingtonia in Tempe Arizona, in front of someone’s business. First one I’ve seen in person randomly around. Enjoy.

      Have a few Washingtonia robusta/filibusta started from seed and currently in 5 gallon pots. All of them were potted straight up or very nearly so. They now all lean a little or a lot to the south (towards the sun.)
      None of my other palms seem to be doing this. Is this normal? Should I try to fix it by turning the pots or will it matter when they go in the ground later this year? Probably not enough time to make much of a difference is what I think.
      When they go in the ground I'm guessing it is best to try to get them 'straight' again. Are they small enough to where it does not matter? They will be about 24" tall, smallish compared to big box store palms because they have been in the full AZ sun from Day One with no shade...
