New Leaf Studies

Recommended Posts

Kim

It's been raining off and on this morning, so I've been looking through my recent photos and decided to do a New Leaf thread. Please add your own new leaf photos when you can.

First up, Licuala peltata v. sumawongii. The huge round pleated leaves are stupefying.

Dypsis coursii

Dypsis 'Orange Crownshaft', 2 views

Next, Dypsis "Dark Mealybug" backside view of new frond

We all love the smell of a new Chambeyronia frond in the morning, especially v. Hookeri.

Two shots of Calyptrocalyx pachystachys showing off their new leaves.

I am especially thrilled to see this new Lemurophoenix frond opening to full size after some severe damage from the volcanic eruption down the street.

Yesterday:

Geeze Kim, those were nice. Especially the L. 'Sumawongii', that is as close to perfect as it gets. 

I'll post a few too, can't pass up sone nice leaf photos.

Since we had a very strong typhoon two weeks ago the garden still looks a bit shaken,

but two or three hopefulls should always be found here or there... :) 

004.thumb.jpg.70aa0927f868ca962b3a423a8895b7a7.jpg

Transplanted a month ago and kept going pushing its newest leaf, opened a few days ago right 

after the typhoon hit us - Dictyosperma album. 

005.thumb.jpg.60241c7e8785c71c8fbe8dd5eb758317.jpg

Looking almost perfect - planted out a month ago - the new leaf of my Dypsis robusta. (grown from seed)

006.thumb.jpg.e22e1760488bbe768f475a63f1497a6d.jpg

Just opened up and still unfolding - a new leaf of one of my Veitchia joannis...

best regards from Okinawa -

Lars

Some Dypsis: a pair of the D. saintelucei, one of a D. heteromorpha and one shot of the D. crinita showing a little color.  It is easier getting these of the smaller plants that are at eye level or if you can get above them in some cases.

I am enjoying seeing new fronds on a lot of palms I do not grow -- not only beautiful, but also educational. Some palms change so much from seedling to juvenile to adult. 

Keep 'em coming!

First, Hydriastele rheophytica, a slender, delicate clustering palm.  The two palms, then the new fronds.

The fine leaflets of Beccariophoenix madagascariensis are difficult to capture with all the other greenery around.

Gotta love those variegated Rhapis excelsa!  I have a potted one in my San Diego garden, maybe a tad more white in the variegation, it's a favorite.  Had not heard of this form of Archontophoenix --  the reins are the distinguishing feature? Or other features as well?

Kim: The variegation in my Rhapis fronds isn't very white, more like a lime green, but still attractive. The reins on that A. 'teracarpa' frond aren't anything unusual, I just wanted to show a new leaf on mine today and that's how it looked. It's from Phil at Jungle Music who describes it this way: "ARCHONTOPHOENIX 'TERACARPA' THE BEST KING PALM EVER! This is a type of King Palm that comes from a large specimen in my personal garden.  We named it 'teracarpa' - meaning 'big body'.  No one has been able to identify it.  It has a much thicker trunk, gets taller than the normal King Palm, is a more vigorous grower and does not brown tip in sun.  In my garden it towers over regular Kings nearby and is much greener and prettier.  There's a hint of silver on the back of the leaves and seeds are larger than normal King Palm seeds.  All who have bought it say it's one of the best palms in their garden.  Cold tolerant to about 25 degrees F. by estimation."

I'm not thinking that these are impressive at all but they are new leaves.

Here's the newest leaf on my Hyophorbe lagenicaulis.  It's enjoying its summer outdoors, but in order to keep it alive it spends half the year in my sunroom. Got it originally from a local big box store, though this species is not really well suited to our local climate.

Steve, I actually find the Kentiopsis oliviformis new leaves which turn a bluish color after completely opening very attractive.  I can look out the window from my home office and see one even as I type.  I know that Rhopalostylis sapida already has the common name "shave brush palm" cornered, but in reality my KO's look far more like the shaving brush my grandfather and father used than sapidas do.  Great palm to fill the right spot in my opinion.

More new fronds!  Another of my 3 Lemurophoenix cracked a frond yesterday morning. As seen from kitchen window, then outside:

Another young plant, this time something I acquired as Dypsis sp Jurassic Park which has been classified as Dypsis pilulifera.  I put this in the ground as a little 1 gallon and it pushes out a couple of leaves per year at this size in my climate.  I like the progression in leaf size!
