Coccothrinax species id

Recommended Posts

Tracy

I was hoping someone might recognize the species of this still small Coccothrinax.  When I purchased it the label just read "Coccothrinax sp.".  I planted it at least a year ago if not longer and it seems to grow fine here.  Leaf tips appear to be arching downward and they are relatively rigid for the size of the plant.  A little bit of white on the backside of the leaf, but not extensive as you can see.  The leaf achieves a full 360 circumference.  What are your thoughts on a possible species?

Another one a little larger.I started these from seed about 15 years ago...

Pretty slow but steady growers under Arizona desert conditions.

Thank you!  It's been a pretty good grower here for me as well.  I looked up and this must have been pretty close to when I planted it, taken on 2/10/2018, so just 25 months ago.  I guess there are several forms of C miraguama, any idea which form yours are (e.g. var havanensis, roseocarpa, etc.)?

Seed was bought as 'miraguama'. That's good enough for me. :)

All sub species pretty much look the same.Differences are in flowers/seeds.

      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)
