That’s a great looking palm. These are such great palms for Southern California.

Matt - How long has that been in the ground?  Mine has really tall fronds (12') on it, but not ready to trunk yet.  I believe now that mine would have grown faster if it had gotten more sun.

Yeah Joe. Mine was really fast when it was in full sun but has slowed down as the canopy has filled in. It’s probably about 10 years old

Sadly, one I planted a few years back next to my driveway (Stupidly, WITHOUT gopher protection).. was putting out about 4-5 leaves and looking great....dead, chewed off :rant:

      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....
