Bismarckia nobilis (Post Yours)

Recommended Posts

Here are mine. Perfect palms for my area except susceptible to lethal bronzing and palm weevils.

I took these pictures minutes ago. The conditions in my backyard may be pushing the climate tolerances for my Bismarckia nobilis.  Lots of spotting on the older fronds this past winter. It grows steadily but I can't say it's thriving compared to others in NorCal I've seen posted here.  To its right is a Nannorrhops ritchiana which is thriving!

Same palm from a couple of angles as the lighting was too high in contrast to get a good photo.

Wow, that'll stop traffic.

Hate to say this, but it's way too close to the fence, though I don't think it'll knock it over.

I am planting one this week if the shipment is fast enough. (Will post IT) IT is currently on average 30 celcius here and 10-15 in the night. I know IT is very rough estimate, but how much growth can i expect? Palm is 80 cm with leafs. Summer starts soon and 35-40 is not rare then it gradually drops down to like 25ish and 5 degrees in the night in late november.

I think it will take a year to set down roots, maybe even 2 full growing seasons.   Water deeply in the heat 3x a week, 2x a week when temps drop.  By deeply I means hose on a slow trickle for 2-3 hrs.  Ensure the wet spot is round shape about the trunk 2+ feet out from the trunk.  Fertilize in 2 months after planting.  In 5 years it will be 10-12' tall or so and in 10 years it will be over 20'.  On hot, dry days you might spritz with fine water spray for 10 seconds at the end of the day to cool the palm off when it is still adapting(first 4-6 months).  Just a few suggestions fro growing a bizzie in the desert.  I grew 4 bizmarckias in the Arizona desert.  (3) survived the 21F winter 30 year cold event.  today they must be pretty big.

Dear Tom,

Can we have some visuals of your Bizzy palms...I remember that they have massive trunks and retains lots of silvery leaves.

Love,

Kris.

First chris, good to hear from you!  Here is an update: I lost a bizzie to the dreaded palm weevil last fall.  On the positive side, the surviving female palm is among the whitest I have seen.  I took some pics mid day for you chris.  Here is the palm in bright sun showing its high wax leaves.   First looking up at the massive spears preparing to open and second the overall pic in bright sun.

best,

Tom

I try not to get too attached to this palm, as I know it is caviar to gophers, but it’s one of my favorites.

To the left is a Dypsis sainte lucie, a clumping Dypsis mahajanga in the back, and a Dypsis pembana to the extreme left.

@redant Those are beautiful. 

I see you are in Jupiter, how long have you lived there? I stayed there (Juno Beach) for a couple of weeks on vacation a few years ago and absolutely loved it there.

Not mine, but a big green variety I saw in Punta Gorda.  Ive never seen a green one before this. 20191223_120358.thumb.jpg.f460ea52b748f035adccd3eff5be8105.jpg

Been in Jupiter about 34 years, longer then any other place. Love Jupiter but it was way better a long time ago.

His house/palms are about the same age as mine, that guy is about 17 or 18 yrs old.

Do these palms (roots) establish well for everyone without wobbling issues?

My guess is it was planted as a decent sized palm.
