A little side yard clean up

Recommended Posts

MattyB

The rats were living in a huge overgrown mess of Ti plants and they were eating all of my bananas, so I decided to clean it all up today.  Here's some pics of the results.

Satakentia single, Archontophoenix purpurea triple, and an Allagoptera that's splitting into two.

In case anyone is interested, I planted the Archontophoenix from three separate 5 gallon palms.  I did this on purpose in order to get the gentle lean away from each other.  I find that if you plant a triple that's been grown in the same pot you get a big curve in the lower trunks and I don't particularly like that look.  I grew these from seed from Steve Huston's very purple king that was in his front yard.

How about more of your garden?

Take us out of captivity vicariously . . . .

Sure is a fine day for some yard cleaning! That sky looks like it would go "clink" if you shot a bullet up into it . . . .

Interesting as you read my mind cause I have a Triple Purpurea I am thinking about planting in front yard.  Maybe I should do it your way.

Here’s 3 different Pseudophoenix to wet Dave’s whistle.

BrianK, yours will look roughly like this. If you separate them and plant them 12” apart they’ll look like mine. Just a matter of personal taste.

It’s great. I put some fertilizer on it this summer so it’s growing well

      You may recall that my Carpoxylon had a severe case of pink rot last winter.  I thought I was gonna lose it, but it's actually pulled through.  There is a hollow spot in the woody trunk that I assume will eventually open up and be unsightly, but the growing point is up and away from any of that funkiness.  Since I cut down a foxtail that was above it (foxtail was riddled with pink rot) the Carpoxylon has thrown a few leaves that are much more compact and recurved due to the extra sunlight.  It's looking pretty darn good and doing a visible swelling of the base.  Here's the visuals....
