Spectacular garden, which provides a little relaxation for those of us just looking at the photos.  I'm sure it provides an even more intense sense of awe in person with the size of the specimens and diversity you have.  So Bill, a couple of questions on id's, the one in the center in the first photo, and the one in the back left of the triangle of palms in the second photo.  Both are extremely vertical with no trunks yet, like volcanoes erupting from the ground.... probably not the analogy you guys on the big island like.

I was wondering the same thing!  I think the second photo is a Rhopalostylis on the left, but I'm not sure what type.  The first photo you quoted looks like a young Attalea of some type.

My guess was a Ravenea for the first one as it reminds me of my julietiae although looks like it will be a bigger species.  The second one I'm with you and was also guessing it is an Attalea.  We will find out how well we did soon I'm sure.

Thanks for the clarification Bill!  I'm curious if yours looked like this when it was younger and smaller?  Mine was labeled as Ravenea julietiae as were others sold here in the Southern California market, but in another string there was some speculation that what we are growing is actually a different species of Ravenea.  Hence my question if what we are growing will develop into what you have or perhaps something different.  I will be more confident in the id of mine if yours looked like this when it was at this stage of development.  Thanks and I'm already looking forward to your next "walk about"!

Thank You for sharing Bill. 

I think we all have a lot of free time right now. 

Living in California and seeing the pictures of your garden is truly awe inspiring.

Post as many and as often as you can....

Well if you do determine what the one like mine is, we will be looking forward to learning.  Meanwhile your specimen pictured is spectacular.  Now I'll be bugging you for periodic photo updates on both Ravenea species in the coming years.

Wow Bill... hard to say which was more impressive the first walk or this one as they both are A-plus!  Which species of Encephalartos?  Perhaps ituriensis in the foreground and laurentianus back right or are they both same species?

Fantastic Bill! As many times as I've been to your garden, I don't remember those cycads, even as large as they are. Will stop on by one of these days.
