San Diego Spindle palm

Recommended Posts

This is a palm that usually grows pretty well for us in our area, unlike its cousin H. laugenicalis. Mine can hold 2 or 3 good leaves any any given time, but then winter sets in and beats it up and it then takes a full growing season to look reasonable again. So, this is about as good as it gets for me. Nothing like the tropics, but still draws a lot of comments. The crownshaft after a leaf drops off is awesome looking, purple with white wax streaks. Thanks for looking!

Looks great. I’ve never done great with them. For me they burn during winter just to get burned in the summer. Shame too cuz they are really colorful and attractive. Yours looks awesome

Very nice spindle! I plan to pick a small one up in san diego and bring it back to Arizona. Did you get it at jungle music?

Thanks for the replies all.. Coasta, I think this came from a botanical garden sale years ago, but Jungle Music usually has them!
