The Syagrus which wanted to be a Roystonea

Recommended Posts

Alicante

This Syagrus from Brazil thought that he/she was tired already of being just a simple Syagrus and evolved into a Roystonea. :lol:

I also found this pic which I posted few years ago here in Palmtalk, within a field of the east coast of Spain. Those Syagrus look pretty cool too:

Those ones also have a bit of a Roystonea feeling, isn't it? Not sure how they look nowadays. But that Brazilian one (1st pic) is just epic !

Another Roystonea looking Syagrus. Add some green at the top of the trunk and it can perfectly pass as one. :P

Sometimes I see here S.romanzoffiana with really massive trunks. I´ve seen some with even fatter trunks then this posted above.

Do you have any pic of them ? (I believe you, of course! but it would be splendid to see them ^_^)

Going along with this thread, I saw this pair in front of a club/bar just south of Clermont, FL on U.S. 27. It seems very obvious in the close up picture, but from the highway, they kind of look the same and I had had to do a double take to realize they were a queen and a royal.

      Yesterday was a windy day in Guada La Habra. So windy that a big gust broke a leaf off Butch, my biggest Roystonea regia long, long before it was ready.

      I planted the following three Syagrus species and/or hybrids on my garden lot way back around 2013. I grew most if not all of them from seeds. At one time they were tagged but no longer. I believe one of them (#3) may be S. picrophylla but need confirmation. Nos. 1 & 2 are true unknowns. All of them are smaller and much slower growing than common queens. Nor have they been affected by the fursiarum wilt that killed off all my queens and mules in 2014/15. None of them has flowered yet. They are easy-growing palms that take my climate and soil in stride.

      Hi Everyone
      I need this Syagrus species identified please.  I tried under the "Cold Hardy" heading, but got no replies.  All inputs will be welcomed.
      Thank you

      Hi, Just moved to Cathedral City and have been walking the neighborhood and came upon two beautiful examples of  Roystonea regia.  Here are pictures.  Does anyone in the area know where these can be purchased or ordered online.  I've called several nurseries in the area with no success.  I have been told I could get them closer to the coast.  Anyone else in Coachella Valley have success with these beautiful palms?
      Thanks!
