Orange "big boy" palm

This thing never stops to amaze me. Dypsis carlsmithii. Three leaves just fell off, due to rotting infloresence.

Too me a perfect coconut replacement here. Does need good, salt free soil, away from ocean. Have planted a few 

to close to the beach, with sad results.

Just Gorgeous Colin!  Love the color of that crownshaft and the ringed trunk both.

Never seen a Carlsmithii with that much red on the crownshaft. Very cool. Thanks for sharing that!

thanks everyone,  I have posted this quite a few times, but I am really amazed it still has great color as a older palm.

Here is the last post 6/19.

That's a gorgeous palm!  I wonder why I didn't have that one on my "to buy list."  KinzyJR's hardiness list has it surviving Leu Gardens' 2009 extended 29F freeze with no damage, and similar or even worse freezes in Vero Beach down to 26F with apparently no damage.  It's definitely on my buy list now!  :D

Is that palm a slow grow?

Don, here in Honolulu it is fast. once it gets into the ground, with regular nutricote, and it

is planted in very deep black volcanic clay.  I have tried them, two houses up from the ocean

and they perished quickly.  Not sure if other peoples planted out have the same coloration or not.
