Garden looks great but I really liked the architectural woodwork on the front of the house. I hope it will be visible again as the garden matures, it's a nice feature.

Yeah, once the Phoenix hybrids grow up the front of the house will be visible. At the rate they're growing, i give them 3 years to get above the roofline. We do like the privacy on the porch though, as we're on a rather busy street.

Yes... and no. Also everywhere in the garden, as squirrels had their way with a batch of them.

Do what you can to get them into individual pots.

If you want more, ask!

YOU'RE WEESH' ISS MY COMMAND SIRE!

Lookin’ good. That is a J. caffra I see correct? I’m envious. I want one. I had a seedling but I killed it. I’m really good at killing tiny seedlings. I think I over water. I digress, again, great work.

Yeah! that's a jubaeopsis which was seed grown by the late George Sparkman. It's one of my favorite palms.

Josue: Awesome views of your personal palmetum! Hope your water bills weren't too high during our most recent heatwave; mine certainly went up! I've still not decided exactly where to plant my pot-bound Jubaeopsis yet. If I could expect it to do as well as yours I'd not hesitate to put it in the ground! ;)

Yes! In fact I was inspired by your yard and I am going for a similar look.
I've only lived in my house for two years now, but one day I hope it will look like yours :)

Your garden is wonderful, but it lacks some bananas! They can be combined perfectly with palms.

Have you considered adding like Rainbow Euc or Schizolobium parahyba? They are Rockets and will get above everything fast.  Add some Tropical Trees to go with everything.   I also have a Pink Cedar that grew fast to add height and Color.    

 

The foxtails where the first thing I planted, to go with King Palms and Royals.   Have 2 bizzys in there you can’t see. Lol.   A lot of big stuff for small yard.   I over planted and just adjust as you go.  Get canopy going then can start planted slower growing stuff.    But I have mix of cool big leaf things.  

 

You should definitely add my fav Palm Brahea Decumbens.  They love heat and are awesome small Palm with great color.  I planted along my walk ways.    Keep up the good work.

There is a Butia partially showing, a Texas Sabal on the right side, a few robustas and some other ones out of the frame. I am limited to 8b/9a palms and I pretty much have most if not all that will survive here.

I have a couple of bananas, but i prefer Strelitzia because the leaves don't tear as easily as bananas.

I've stayed away from large trees, but i did add handroanthus impetigunosa & handroanthus umbellata. Both planted as seedlings, so they take a while to have any impact. They're kinda hidden - you can see the umbellata in the top picture alllll the way on the left side next to the bismarkia. It's ties to a wooden stake so you can make it out fairly easily. And yeah! i love decumbens! i have a young one up front, somewhat hidden by the big Aloe striata

I found a couple True Wash Filifera seedlings I’m gonna try.  I don’t have the Heat you do, but I live the Fat trunk Fan Look.   As much as I hate Robusta, I love Filifera.   Wish I had your heat I’m coastal SD.    Gonna try it anyways lol.   I’m out of Room in Front yard working in the back now.
