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
Trunk & fiber detail
I have a 10" pot of 60+ seedlings of Ptychosperma robusta from my mother palm. About 10 years ago I bought a young clustering Ptychosperma at a sale. The seller called it "Ptychosperma robusta", which was not then and is not now a valid binomial, to my knowledge. He knew nothing else about it. When it was smaller I posted photos in hope someone on the forum would recognize it but got no response. Anyway it has grown quite large and so tall I can't easily photograph its crown. I remove its offsets to keep it at two stems that are 4-5" diameter each, quite chunky by Ptychosperma standards. It grows quickly, flowers and seeds easily and ripe fruit is vibrant red. The infructescences are so high up we can no longer reach them with ladders or pole saws. As a result seedlings pop up all around it in the jungle. The other day I dug up over 80 seedlings and rather than compost them, will find them a new home. I can say this unknown species is completely hardy here and took down to 38F last winter. I hope some enterprising palm lover can offer these seedlings a home. And I hope someone can give it a valid name if one exists. Seedlings will be sent via Priority Mail with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil. Take a leap into the unknown. See summary below
