Dypsis Dypsis Dypsis!

Hilo Jason

It’s a beautiful sunny morning here in Hilo (a nice change from an extremely wet month of March).  

This section of the garden was begging to be photographed in the morning sun.

The three tall palms in the photo above (from left to right) are: Dypsis sp. Mayotte, Dypsis Pembana hybrid (probably w/ madagascariensis) and Dypsis Prestoniana Hybrid (also most likely crossed with Madagascariensis).

In the foreground toward the left is what we are hoping is the true Dypsis Tokoravina.

The Dypsis Prestoniana Hybrid is one of my favorite plants in the garden. It is at the perfect height to really enjoy it right now. The downside to how fast it grows is that soon it will be too high up to really appreciate it.

this was planted from a 2 gallon pot, less than 3 years ago!

Dypsis Prestoniana are fast here, but this hybrid is a rocket. 

Heres a Prestoniana planted out from a 1 gallon pot about the same time. Hard to tell scale but probably 10’ tall to the tallest point.

I’ll try to update this thread with some more Dypsis pictures from the garden. As time and lighting allows.

We will be looking forward to it.  Seeing how fast palms grow there, it begs the question of why bother getting anything other than little 1, 2, 3 gallon plants?  Even though we see it in your garden and others, it is still mind boggling how fast some of these same palms are that we try to grow in our gardens.  Most of the time, I'm able to tamp down the voice of envy perched on my left shoulder and appreciate seeing the potential of plants in my garden and just enjoy seeing yours.  Key word in that last sentence is "Most".  Gorgeous, and looking forward as usual to your updates.

I see Jason you have taken very well to the island life.  Those pics are amazing.  That prestoniana hybrid is a true beauty!!  I love the leaflet arrangement.  It seems somewhat more relaxed than the standard prestoniana.  At least compared to mine in the high desert.  Please continue to update so we can get our Hawaiian palm fix.  ;)
