Many Multi-Headed Ptychosperma Downtown West Palm Beach, FL

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any background on these?  There is an entire block of Okeechobee Blvd in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida, USA full of multi-headed Ptychosperma.  One block over of Ptychosperma are all regular "solitary" Solitaire Palms...so it has to have been done intentionally.  Wondering if the growing points were intentionally damaged or if these were selected collected out of fields of thousands that had random multi-headed ones.

Don't stand around there too long, you may grow another head.  Good pics!

      I am currently in Florida (West Palm Beach area). I am making this thread to share a lot of the palms that I see. Most of these palms are pretty common (especially to people who live in Florida). So here they are. I will post new pictures on this thread over time.

      Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of my indoor gems, generally palms that either wouldn't survive or would look terrible outdoors in my climate...

      Ptychosperma Gracile

      Licuala Ramsayi

      Chambeyronia Macrocarpa... my favourite... survives in my garden too, but hates the dry winds... and a little Pinanga Kuhli, bottom right.

      Adonidia Merrilli (not a chance outdoors), with the Chambeyronia on the right

      Pritchardia Thurstoni

      Ptychosperma Bleeseri, Caryota Mitis, and Ptychosperma Elegans (at the back)
      Hope you like them
