Free Dypsis Decipiens, Beccariophoenix and more

Recommended Posts


Hello All,

After just having my second winter in a row of falling into the teens, I am having a zone denial giveaway of some of the palms I have been keeping in my greenhouse, but will never be safe in the ground here in the 8B/9A border region.   I am located just northwest of Houston (Magnolia, TX) and am giving away the following to anybody that wishes to give them a better home (preferably closer to the coast, inside the loop or as a patio plant).     There will be no shipping of these palms, so PM me if you wish to pick any up.

4 Beccariophoenix Alfredii  (~3 gallon pots)

2 Beccariophoenix  ???? (labels wore off, thinking madagascariensis) 3 Gallon Pots

3 Dypsis Decipiens (one already dividing into two) 3 Gallon Pots

2 Syagrus Botryophora(I think, again labels are gone) 3 Gallon Pots

4 Coconuts (in 10 gallon containers, look a little rough now from being stuck in cramped greenhouse, but come back strong outside in the summer heat here)

Here are some pics of a few of the plants I am offering.

Makes me wish I was in Texas. I messaged a friend here at palmtalk that lives by in San Antonio, hoping he sees it and this before they are spoken for. Think he would enjoy them very much.

Man, those all look great, especially the Dypsis decipiens and the B. alfredii. I am extremely interested. I live in SW Houston. Check your PMs.

      I would like to try some marginal palms in S.E. Houston. The climate for the past 25 years (post 1989) has been mostly cool 9b with a few 9a and 10a winters. High temperatures can be cool for a week or more with highs of 50 but average in the 60s with a few 70s. The soil is clay with 50 inches or rain per year. Here are some that I am considering. The absolute winter low minimums are probably similar to about midway between Ocala and Orlando but with average lower winter maximums. New Orleans is about as close to my climate as any city.
