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.
Syagrus ID #1
Here's a new drone video I made of the Royal Palms in Hollywood, Florida:
I need this Syagrus species identified please. I tried under the "Cold Hardy" heading, but got no replies. All inputs will be welcomed.
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?
