Syagrus species/hybrids x3 for ID

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

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

Syagrus ID #3: Is this S. picrophylla? It is shorter and has a denser, more upright crown than the first two palms

      I've had this Zamia for a few years and never been able to id it.   It coned in 2018 and 2017 and never pushes more than 2 leaves at a time.  It has a smooth rachis, flushes with the brown leaves which get a bluish tint underneath as they begin to harden off, finally turning a deep green.  Any identification thoughts?

      I have a dwarfish Coccothrinax seeding in my 16x16' box on my Garden Lot. I'm pretty sure I grew it from seed and planted it ~2013 but its tag disappeared over the past 6 years. The palm is ~3' tall by 3' wide with 12-14" of trunk. Leaves are 3' diameter, fairly rigid (i.e., not "droopy") and quite silver on the back. Hastulas are pale yellow. The other day I noticed it has produced a small crop of 1/2" purple fruit. It is one of the smallest Coccothrinax sp in the box and, other than my 8' tall C. cupularis, is the only one that has flowered and produced seeds. I'm interested in dwarf palms and wonder if this plant might qualify.
      I took a passel of photos to illustrate all parts of this plant, including its woven trunk fibers. I understand this genus can be difficult to differentiate but could somebody give me an idea what this little guy might be? I plan to sell the seeds in one lot if another Coccothrinax lover wants them.

      I purchased this a few years ago as a Brazoria from a nursery that had many kinds of Sabal (ecotypes of palmetto & minor, green uresana, and brazoria) all mostly strap leaf in 3 gallon, not labeled but separated into groups.  I was directed to the Brazoria, picked one up and was on my way.
      Now a few years later and my plant has palmate leaves, I'm thinking maybe I grabbed one of the minors that got accidentally placed with the Brazoria?
      I think they maybe had Louisiana and some eastern nc giant type?  I don't remember exactly  but here is my palm.

      It usually holds 6ish leaves (most were shredded or crushed in hurricane last year), they are not very costapalmate, and is deeply split into a "v" shape
      Looks mostly like the rest of my minors at this point, except maybe the petioles are slightly thinner?
      Just curious because the last palm I purchased as an "x texensis" (I assumed meant brazoria) turned out to grow like a weed and has 8 feet of trunk now.  I'm guessing it's a mexicana or palmetto, but is not a Brazoria for sure.

      Was at my grandparent’s house today and their front neighbors have a curious triple Veitchia specimen.. my guess would be V. winin
      some closeups of the fruit which look different from my V. arecina/joannis at home
      any ideas!!

      When I got the aloe which is flowering in the photo below, the name was on the outside of the 1 gallon black container.  I have since lost the container after planting it up once, and then finally putting it in the ground a couple of years ago.  I'm hoping that someone will quickly recognize the species between the leaf structure and the inflorescence.
