Pinanga Coronata - 1 year of growth!

Recommended Posts

Hilo Jason

I posted this update in my Hilo Garden thread but it's getting a bit long over there, so not sure many people saw it.  

It's incredible how fast Pinanga Coronata grow here on the Big Island.  These have been in the ground for one year, planted as 1 gallon plants, in full sun.

One year later...

Feel free to post pictures of your Pinangas as well.  Such elegant palms!  Thanks for looking.

And they look perfect. They love the islands as much as we do!

Thanks Steve although I can't take much credit. Fertilizer every 3 months and Hawaii takes care of the rest.

Same for my Fallbrook garden,  had to grow them in shade there and pretty slow. I was told they were fast here but didn't really believe it til I saw these things go crazy in the past 6 months.

What growth rate!

As noted above, in So Cal they need shade and grow on the slower side for me.

Looks like the "blunt leaf" variant;  one of my palm faves.  Always looks perfect.  I think it makes a good lower level windbreak component as well.  Interestingly, the standard P. coronata never looks that good IMHO here in east Hawaii.  Usually they look sunburned and wind shredded unless protected.  Nice going with these guys, Jason.

This one was a really small 1 gallon about 6 month ago. Starting to pick up speed

Pretty steady for me, worry-free and just so dang gorgeous in shade here in SoCal. As they've grown into some sun, they've seemed to tolerate it moderately well.

Not only is this a beautiful palm, it's versatile as well. I've got some as visual screens, light clumping individuals, and medium to heavy clumping specimen plants. 

Selectively pruning the stems makes another totally different looking palm, especially exposing the colorful inflorescence. Nothing short of spectacular.

Thanks Dave.  And honestly I have heard the name 'blunt leaf' but never really paid much attention to there being different forms of Coronata.  I have seen some Coronata's around East Hawaii that look like you describe - sunburned and wind shredded, but I always just assumed they were lacking fertilizer or some sort of nutrient.  I never connected the facts that it was a different form.  So I'm glad that I happened to get the right one for where we are located, and I'm thankful that's what Floribunda is selling!

Right around the 6 month mark is where I really started noticing the growth increase on mine.  Seems like that's about all the time they need to root themselves in to get going.  

That new colored leaf is nice!  I don't think I've seen that on any of mine.

That's the money shot right there!  Tim's garden is around the corner from mine and seeing this one in person was part of my inspiration for planting a row of them.  Just perfect looking in so many ways!  Thanks for posting this Tim!

Thanks Jason, it's great sharing the garden with other enthusiastic palm growers. It's stimulating, exciting, and provides fuel for the passion. 

Matt, nice vignette looking out that window. That Pinanga and Licuala will only get better.

Here’s the 2 year update on these Pinanga Coronata.  In just 2 years these have gone from 1 gallon plants to seed producing adults!  And I’m happy to announce that they are fully blocking the road now which was the goal!

5 gallon paint bucket for scale:

Removed the grass that was in between these clumps and made a planter which is filling in nicely.

thanks for looking!

P.S.  I’ll probably be offering some seed from these in the future if there’s any interest.

Looks great and seems like it’s in quite a bit of sun?  These are great palms. I wish I planted more out when I was in Fallbrook. I only had one there, tucked away in a corner.

Yours look great, love these palms. I can grow both the narrow leaf and broad variety. The broad leaf being the less cold tolerant pictured close to the house (best looking) the narrow leaf one out in the garden and though growing well not so good looking. They both produce seed and will self germinate in the garden. Several years growth this far south of the tropics.

I have both types and have noticed that the the fine leave is more tolerant of sun and grows way faster. The blunt leaf was planted 7 months earlier and both from 1 gallons
