Not really any info here, my garden has suffered several disheartening losses lately, plus Covid-19 and wildfire blues,  just some encouraging images,   :winkie:

Agree that we all can use some encouraging news and images, so thanks for sharing this beautiful palm.  Our air quality has been no where near as bad as you have had or other parts of the state, but I know I could feel it in my lungs when out surfing yesterday morning.  We are truly fortunate to have our gardens to enjoy in these times!

Thanks for posting this Darold. It brightened the start to my day. Thats a stunningly beautiful palm youve got there.

I hope things start to go better for all of you guys in the US with covid19 and the fires on the west coast.

Thanks to all for the kind remarks.  Both the air quality and my mood are improving,... blue skies and actual, direct sunshine make a big difference ! :greenthumb:

Hi Darold, may I ask, how well does Hedyscepe canterburyana enjoy northern California full sun, compared to Archontophoenix cunninghamiana and Rhopalostylis sapida?  I realize your neighborhood is not in full sun for much of the summer.  The air also is much improved down here in Burlingame.

Hedyscepe is more tender to hot sun.  Foliage that has grown in my 'direct sun' will be damaged during the once/year event when the hot, dry interior air moves toward the ocean, similar to Santa Ana wind in SoCal.

  Archontophoenix, I can't tell, I have only one plant and the foliage is too tall to observe the top side.

Rhopalostylis seems to be the toughest of these three.

Andrei, you should come by, I would feel OK if we both wear masks.  :)

Oh my eyes! Blindingly beautiful photos of Hedyscepe!

I saw one this morning on my extended walk through Point Loma, San Diego. The climate here is hospitable, but the palm is rare, though older specimens are found. But I did not encounter the fireworks yours is displaying! Special!
