Commercial Building Cycad n Palm Collection

Recommended Posts

Briank

I have a customer I’ve been going to for maybe the past 4-5 yrs.  The commercial lot is filled with Cycads and Great Palms.  
 

Maybe someone on here knows the owner as the person who owns these building Lots in El Cajon is a Cycad n Palm Nutt.  Have seen several spots in El Cajon I have customers in.  Finally took some pics to share.   Not a Cycad guy but these are stunning.  Please post what they are if you notice for me.  
 

Enjoy.   Oh, and the reason I took a pic of the One Bismarkia is because it’s actually a Double.  Never seen one before.  The second it much smaller but interesting to see what happens down the road lol.

Pretty good.  There’s also several Jubaeas, Jubea X Butia Hybrid.   Small Beccariophoenixs.   Think Livi Decora is the tall one.   There’s more than I posted but wanted to see if people could tell me what all the cycads where.   Some macrozamia, Cycas.   I think the tall upright ones have to be Laurentianus or Whitelockii maybe.  I don’t know.   But they awesome

One of my shops is around the corner from there. If i remember right thats Gregg Hamanns property. He also has an awesome garden that he opened up to us a while ago. He has some other palms there that are inside the property too. When I go to my El Cajon shop I always make a visit there. Phil from Jungle Music did a post on it years ago.

I don't know the Macrozamia species very well so won't try to id species on those but on the large Encephalartos it would be helpful to see the detail (closups) of the leaflets to identify species.

Steve it sure looks like the same property.  Great link to Phil's old post on it too.  The Palm Society meeting held at Gregg's was a not to miss event.  Definitely a garden worth traveling to see if it ever gets back on the agenda for another meeting.

I was on Oahu when they had it. I’m still bummed I missed it. Doubt the opportunity will come up again.

Yes it is.   He has several around the area.  I do not know him but I have several customers inside his Comm buildings. Cool to see him develop these properties.  Great stuff to see.

BS Man about Palms

Yep, Gregg Hamanns place. Inside the "Atrium" is even more spectacular. His office basically has the best view of the palms inside. If he is there, not busy atm, he may pop out to see you if you show an interest. Great guy!

Great looking M. Moorei, communis and possible a Johnson or two based of the photos.

Greg's atrium is awesome I had the privilege of touring it about 10 yrs ago with some fellow palmtalkers. There was a c renda and many other jewels in there that will not grow outside here. There are offices on either side of the atrium with koi ponds. And lots of rare and unusual palms and exotics. Truly a great work environment
