Allagoptera arenaria Germinated Seeds - One Lot

Recommended Posts


In late October I baggied up all the seeds produced by my mother palm to see if they were viable. Today, I checked on them and can report: YES! They are. A. arenaria is a trunkless, unarmed palm that hails from the seashore of Brazil. Its elegant, plumose leaves are dark green above and strikingly silver beneath. In a breeze they are mesmerizing. The seashore palm is coldhardy to zone 9, is salt- and sand-tolerant. A line or group of them would make a great hedge. It is uncommon and hard to find in any quantity.

I am selling these sprouting seeds in one lot in their 1 qt. freezer bag. I did not make an exact count of the seeds in this baggie but I'm sure there are dozens and most of them appear to be germinating. I won't disturb them to find out. See below

Allagoptera arenaria - One Lot of germinating seeds in 1 qt. bag w/orchid moss = $20.00

Shipping = $6.00     No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

Total = $26.00

Payment via Paypal

      Allagoptera arenaria, the seashore palm, is native to the dunes of the southeast coast of Brazil where it is highly endangered by development. It has a subterranean trunk and plumose dark green leaves back with silver. My mother palm has been seeding for several years but as none would germinate for me I stopped working with them. Imagine my surprise last fall when I found tiny grasslike seedlings coming up beneath her. I dug up and potted them and 6-7 months later 12+ of them are growing happily. I don't have room for them and want to find them a new home. I am selling them in one lot.
      Cost: Lot of 12 seedlings = $25.00
      Shipping Cost Included in price. Plants will be sent via Priority Mail. I will remove from pot, wrap roots in damp orchid most, clear wrap and foil.
      Payment via Paypal
      No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI.

      About 10 years ago I planted quite a few 3 gallon palms in my back yard. I recently moved two of them - both Thrinax radiatas. I discussed that move in this post.
      I'm now considering moving two more palms (and a tree) and was looking for some feedback from the Palm Talk community.
      The first palm I am considering moving is an Allagoptera arenaria. I really like this palm and have enjoyed watching it grow over the years. Unfortunately, I did not properly anticipate its growth habit. It has developed four trunks which are at a 45 degree angle to my screen patio. Here is a close up of the trunks:

      This isn't a very good photo because it was taken early morning, but here is the view of the palm from my screen patio (looking west):

      I would like to move the Allagoptera arenaria to the south side of my yard for three reasons:
      The palm will provide a nice focal point in the new position, as well as contrast to the Copernicia macroglossa I can properly align the four trunks of the palm along the fence which borders the south end of my yard I can move my Pseudophoenix sargentii to the spot where the Allagoptera arenaria was previously located, which will allow me to more easily plant a uniform shrub under the palms along the west end of my screen patio  
      Here is the approximate spot I would like to move the Allagoptera arenaria from two perspectives. The first perspective is looking south from my screen patio:

      Here is the second perspective, looking west from the south end of my yard:

      I apologize for the rough mock-ups which were prepared using Microsoft Paint.
      My questions:
      Do you have any tips for moving an Allagoptera arenaria? Will the palm do well in the new position?
