Ptychosperma ID

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

I've had a skinny, solitary Ptychosperma growing up in my back yard for a number of years. It is perhaps 7-8' tall with a trunk about 1-1/2" in diameter and is easy to miss except that earlier this year it flowered for the first time and produced a dazzling, reddish-purple infructescense. Now I want to know what species it is. Can anyone please tell me? It's a dandy little palm.

Ptychosperma sp ????

If so, that would be great. As for the new leaf, I hadn't noticed but I will keep an eye open. Anybody else have an idea?

      Hello everyone, recently joined new member. Very nice to meet you all!!
      Could you help me with an ID for this palm? My first guess was Adonidia merrillii but somehow just looks different to me. What do you think? I can add details of trunk, fruits, inflorescences and leaves if required. Thanks.

      I saw this palm on my walk today. I'm thinking it's a butia? Let me know what you guys think. I appreciate the help!

      I don't even remember now, at which So Cal Palm Society meeting auction I bought this Dypsis.  I do recall it was solitary and probably no more than a 1 gallon when purchased.  I dropped it in a shaded spot under a Burretiokentia hapala, probably anticipating it would be a smaller gauge trunk and continue taking advantage of the Burretiokentia's shade.  It has since produced one new subterranean offset from the main trunk.  Any thoughts on which fine leafed Dypsis this is?  Markings on the trunk should be a clue.

      Hey everyone,  I am kinda new, but love different type of palms.
      I'm in Greenville SC (zone7b).Seen this palm down town. This tree is absolutely gorgeous.  Could someone tell what it is.
      I'm guessing some type of washingtonia?
      Please let me know, I want to purchase one. (By the way this one looks like it will have be moved, hitting the ceiling)

      This Coccothrinax in my front garden is producing 100s of purple seeds. Could someone tell me which species it might be from the following photos? Thanks
