Help in ID of Palm

Recommended Posts

Hombre de Palmas

Hello Everyone

I need some help in identifying this palm. I have tried to ID it by looking around the neighborhood, or checking images on the net, but have come up with an exact match. The frond stems are not thorny.

Many Thanks

Could it be Ravenea rivularis?

I'm thinking you are correct. For some reason that did not cross my mind.

 

Thank you very much for your responses. Now I have to go break the news to my wife who hates Majesties in the landscape.

I agree, but I need to be strategic in my approach, since happy wife, happy life is my guiding principle!

Funny thing, she loves Beaucarnia recurvata and her main objection to the Ravenea is the swollen base. The other issue is, that they tend to be kind of ratty if not fertilized and watered (which is not a problem in our landscape). She sees a lot of them in the area that are not cared for properly, and that has somewhat colored her feelings. Anyway, she was not happy when I told her, but she hates killing things, so she came up with the idea of planting Thunbergia laurifolia to adorn the trunk as it matures. I was thinking the same thing, but I did not want to push the idea on her.:D

There seems to be a big variability in height on some of the landscape specimens around here, even in groupings in the same yard, and that poses a challenge.  At this point, I expect we will pay our quarter and take our ride.
