Pinanga phillipinensis

Hey all,

I had a fellow Palmtalker ask about growing this in Southern California, and if I could share a picture. This was planted in 2015 from a one gallon plant; the main stem is about 6 feet tall overall. It’s quite pretty and dainty, although I have sometimes cleaned away some of the suckers. It’s a clumper through and through. It’s planted against the north side of the house, so it’s always bright but never has direct sun on it. Other than that, I’m amazed that a palm from such a tropical place would do so (relatively) well here. Thanks for looking!

Great looking Bret! These are really great candidates here in California. Even up here in my SF Bay Area garden, mine’s grown well for three years since planted as a one gallon plant in mostly shade. It’s three feet tall now and suckering. It sails through our cool wet winters with no setback.

That looks fantastic, Bret.  Who knew Pinanga’s from the Philippines could do so well here (maybe better for you!).  How’s your neighbors V. Filifera?

Thanks all for the comments! Jim, that’s really good to know. It’s incredible the degree of cool tolerance these have. The stem on these is a real knockout. Steve, the filifera next door looks fantastic (still) and is flowering for the first time. I’ll grab a picture in the next day or so.

Great info, thanks. I have a bunch of seedlings so hopefully will get some nice plants out of them.

Planted one out 2 years ago that I got from Floribunda and like above, it has done extremely well for me. 

It was placed under a pritchardia for protection.

Can never have too much Pinanga in the garden.  Need to look into this palm.

This one’s my little guy planted three years ago from a one gallon container. Slow but steady growth describes this species in my climate. 51682098-9403-4C0F-A522-6CC4F1ACD75C.thumb.jpeg.7c2e6b776e96b8297d378a55a66b6857.jpeg

I just got one of these for my new garden. How mush sun can these tolerate ?

Very nice, Jim!  Almost looks like a cycad, at that stage.

It can handle full sun here on the Big Island but also looks great in shade.
