Any tips on avoiding yellowing in winter? It’s been so cold and wet this winter that a lot of palms are getting that unattractive yellow hue. What do you do to mitigate this and when do you apply it?
After many years, i am selling and would like to know if I can dig these up to move to my new house. I'm pretty sure the buyer wont appreciate my palms.
I also have a pair of purple heart kings around 8 ft.
Watermelon flamethrower 6-7 ft

I'm looking for 1 to 5 gallon sized Foxy Lady AKA Wodyetia X Veitchia palms for sale in Southern California.
I'm hoping for a local pickup between Santa Barbara and San Diego.
Thanks in Advance,
I was reading up on Southern California's history with Palms and how they grow so tall and I came upon this article. It states that LA isn't replacing their Washingtonia Robusta and Canary Island Date Palm trees! They state only certain tourist-oriented areas will retain palms. Instead they aim to replace these with lousy Oak and other species. I hate this, Southern California is notorious for its skyscraper Washingtonia Robusta! Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard are prime examples.
They suit the SoCal climate perfectly since they require little water and take up next to no space to plant. W. Robusta are from Northern Mexico/Sonora Dessert, so I don't know how they can call them non-indigenous! Maybe not indigenous to Los Angeles, but I think they're just nitpicking. Its the same climate and borders are just man-made anyhow.
I actually don't believe that the palms will ever fully disappear since they rapidly self-propagate, grow everywhere, and are grown by private landowners. There will always be seeds around that birds carry, only to propagate. And the city of LA can't afford to drive around 24/7 to find seeds and remove palms. Not to mention, they can't stop private landowners from planting and or businesses. In turn these will propagate with the wind and regenerate palms everywhere. People like to see them when they go to SoCal/California. Heck, I like to see them anywhere for that matter.
Whats California without palms?
Just a topic to see if anyone else has Bismarck palms in socal especially in the inland empire . I'm wanting to document my first Bismarck i just bought also !
