T wagnerianus as Bonsai

Recommended Posts

Pal Meir

Trachycarpus wagnerianus seems to be another ideal bonsai palm.

Here an 8 years old palm which got transplanted into ground in 2014:

And onother one 12 years old in a Ø12cm x H10cm plastic pot:

How does it tolerate root pruning? Do you bare-root it when pruning or just trim back the roots and potting mix? Any suggestions to keep one healthy long-term in a pot?

Normally I just trim back some roots and change parts of the potting mix. —

Below the first palm when it was planted into ground in 2014 still as a small bonsai. The next photo shows how it looks at present almost 5 years later, no more a little bonsai.

      The 2019 Holiday meet-up started at Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Ft. Pierce, Florida.  The gardens are roughly 5 acres and have a densely planted palm and cycad walk as well as a reflection garden full of Bonsai plants.  Our tour guide for the day was none other than @Dave-Vero.  Currently, the gardens are set up with Christmas lights and a train set under a tree as part of their Garden of Lights event.  For more information on the gardens, please visit: https://www.heathcotebotanicalgardens.org/
      On with the show:
      Next 3 photos: The parking lot has pretty standard views for coastal central Florida; with Livistona and Roystonea in fruit, and some yuccas to stop you from parking in the mulch.



      Next 4 photos: The entrance has some more old favorites.  From there you can see some of the canopy palms in the gardens.




      Once inside, a Satakentia liukiuensis all decked out with lights.

      A look down the path shows that all of the palms are under canopy for protection.  A Dypsis decaryi is present on the right fork.

      There are bromeliads and other plants mixed in with the palms as you would expect.  What's that on the left?

      Next 2 photos: If you guessed Howea forsteriana, you are correct.  This palm seemed to attract most of the attention at the start of the tour.  There is a close-up in the second photo.


      The famed 3-headed Sabal makes an appearance in an open spot off the main path.

      Well with frosts and freezes finally in the forecast, it’s time to mulch and wrap these palms up. But before I do, a little update on their growth this year.

      Hi everyone,
        I'm sorry for the lack of pictures.  I hope to put a close up on here later.  I planted a 15 gal T. fortunei this spring and it has been doing well.  The past 2 weeks the days have been in the 50-60s and the nights 38-50degrees.  I have been noticing that the frond tips are starting to turn yellow.  Should this be a concern?  The new spears are still emerging and look great.  We have had a couple of light frosts but I was going to hold off on my winter protection until the nights are consistently below freezing.   Thanks!

      Hi.
      In spring 2016 I planted my hardy palmtrees om open land. They had been in potts before due to the fact that we were moving and my old garden wasn't perfect for palms.
      When they were planted I took a photo. And this is how small they were.
      Since its dark and raining now I will take a new pic tomorrow to be able to show you how they have grown.

      New York City is a high end zone 7b, cold hardy palms are very rare, but they’re there if you know where to look. Tropical palms, however, are all over the place during the warmer months.
      Sabal minor growing out in the open in Tompkins Square Park in Manhattan:


      It’s flowering, hopefully it seeds so I can grab them all lol, anyone want a Manhattan Minor?
