Floribunda Palms Nursery - visit 28 January 2021

Recommended Posts

bgl

Kim and I were fortunate to visit Floribunda Palms Nursery this morning and walked around for a while, looking at unusual palms with Jeff and Sujin and taking photos, before getting down to our actual reason for the visit - buying palms! :lol: I'll be posting a number of photos but I may need to doublecheck the name for some of them so may not be able to post everything right now. I will only add a photo (or two) of a single species in each post. Here's Pelagodoxa henryana with impressive seeds, with Jeff of course. :)

Two Dypsis prestoniana side-by-side and quite different looking when you take a closer look at arrangement of the leaflets.

Dypsis bentjesii - somewhat uncertain about the spelling of the species name and have to correct it later. Can't find any reference to it, but I'm certain this is the name Jeff used.

Areca goreta and another palm where I am somewhat uncertain about the spelling of the species name. But this is definitely a cute and colorful little palm.

Raphia australis sending up a terminal inflorescence (not that easy to see, or take a good photo of, but it's going straight up from the center of the palm).

This is what Jeff calls the Blue Dypsis decipiens and he is convinced this should be described as a different species, considering the fact that the inflorescence is very different (and much larger) compared to the "regular" D. decipiens.

Hyophorbe vaughanii. That's it for right now. I may have a few more and I believe Kim may have some as well but it will probably be tomorrow before we have time to post additional photos.

Wow, I had no idea Jeff had this in his collection; that's the first one I've ever seen anywhere outside of habitat. And it's flowering. ;)

Well Bo, for not have posted anything in awhile you certainly made the wait worthwhile. So many striking specimens, but the Sommeria gave me an OMG moment. Oy vey!

Look forward to seeing you and Kim again soon.

Here you can see what we bought -- several large palms, the most obvious are Licuala peltata v. peltata -- and many small palms on the pallet on the skip loader.

Bill Langer and John Hovancsek helping load, Jeff and Sujin supervising, as Bo prepares the truck bed. We left with the truck fully loaded, fronds tickling our ears on the ride home.

I will add more photos later today.
