This is my fathers Breahea, I think its one of the best looking ones I've seen. What do you guys think? About 15 years old, in Yuma Arizona.

I always wonder why they arent planted more in AZ, I guess they take a long time to get to 30' tall "landscaping" size for new home install.

Beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen one so robust, even in Mexico.

The leaf shape looks like what I see on my Brahea Clara.

      Hi.
      I'm new to palm trees and this Forum and could use some advice.
      Two months ago we planted a mature Mexican Blue palm in a raised bed in the corner of the yard.
      It gets 8 hours full sun. Light watering 3 times a week from our irrigation system .
      I have deep watered it on weekends since it was planted.  Soil seems to hold the moisture, sand/clay mix,  its damp but not sludge. 
      Daytime temperatures here in LA are from 80's to 100 over the past month.  I've fertilized it once with Miracle Gro for Palms (slow release).
      Issues:
      1) Middle row of fronds turning brown (see picture) while new growth is fine.
      2) what have been very nice flat branches(?) now seem to wilt in the center (picture)  
      3) blue color has faded to light green
       So am I under watering it with this heat?  Or overwatering ?
      Does it need more fertilizer    or a different type ?
      Any help is appreciated
       
      .

      Visited Licing Desert in Palm Springs and saw sign saying there is a place in Baja with three palm species growing together. Is this true? Has anyone been there?

      Any anecdotal evidence that Brahea armata once ranged into SoCal? If not, how close to the border is the nearest stand?
