Creation of my Hawaiian Garden - Horizon View Hilo

That's really amazing progress, and beautiful palms!  Oddly enough, the one that I like the most is the row of Pinanga Coronata.  Maybe because I could (possibly) grow that here in a cold 9b.  I may try this with Dypsis Pembana, which is apparently a few degrees hardier.  Thanks for the pictures!

Jason- that D ambanja looks great.  Does the black peppering go away?

Jason,

the most of your palms are still young but they are already looking so beautiful!

This thread is really a great pleasure and inspiration!

Best regards -

Lars

I agree that Pinanga Coronata is one of my favorites and after seeing how fast they grow here I’m an even bigger fan of them now. I regret not planting that entire row with P. Coronata. On one end I have 2 Dypsis Lanceolata and on the other end are 2 Areca Vestiaria. I wanted to mix up the hedge but the Coronata have out-performed the others and have grown much thicker as well, which is what I wanted with the hedge.

Here’s a picture I just took that shows the Dypsis Lanceolata on the left of the Pinanga Coronata. Still nice looking palms, but just not filling in like the Coronata did. Although in another year or two I’m sure they will. These were also 1 gallon plants and are now over 10 feet tall.

For now, it’s keeping that black peppering. Here are a couple pictures from the newest leaf which is about 7 feet tall.

That's become such a winner.

Every day you walk outside of your house and take a look at your yard you must have to pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming.

Seeing that we will be building our house very soon, this thread gives me hope of what our lot could look like if plans change. Also, being so close, I'm sure our soils are the same. How long did it take you to dig and break through that one hole with straight rock? So not looking forward to using the o`o bar to break through all that rock we have...

I have a good amount of soil in my front yard, so that has been very nice.  The backyard has less and is where I encounter more rock.  The most I will spend is about 30 minutes or so, chipping away at rock and trying to get something to budge.  If it's blue rock, then there's no chance and you just find another spot or plant right on top of it and mound as much soil up as possible to give the palm something to root into.  Thankfully I haven't dealt with that much.

Thanks! I've been lucky that the 1 acre area that the plants will go have been graded so most of the big slabs of blue rock have been eaten up by the dozer's ripper. I know for sure that it still won't be as easy as I'm hoping. Thanks, Jason!
