Type of Hybridized Phoenix Reclinata

Recommended Posts

Cool Ritchie

Greetings,

I need assistance in determining what type of hybridized Phoenix Reclinata palm this is on the photos. After doing some research, I see Reclinata and Sylvester. I'm fascinated with the branches/leaves that look like the Sylvester but multi stem like the Reclinata. Any comment or advise is much appreciated. Live in Central/West Florida.

I'd say that I see more Theophrastii especially in the first photo.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I'll look into the Theophrstii. Never heard of it,  Thanks again. Have a great day.

probably more likely its reclinata x sylvestris.  The leaflet arrangements appear to be intermediate.  It could have theophrastii in it.  What part of the country/world are you?

Are you in Palmetto, FL? We are next to each other then?

yep we are probably within 10 miles.  Theophrastii are uncommon here, as are pure phoenix species in general.  Hybrid reclinatas are quite common.  I can see some with dactylifera blood(bi planar leaflets) and some with planar leaflets that are quite green.  That one could be another hybrid entirely.  The chance of finding non hybrid phoenix species here is a lot less than out west.

Wow small world. Thank you for your feedback. The leaflets I'm fascinated with are biplanar(indented in the middle) but also grow in multiple direction like a star. For lack of a better description.

The trunks look pretty skinny maybe some robellini I don’t know but it’s pretty neat

The only advice I can offer on you Phoenix is to avoid removing so many green productive leaves. It leads to slower overall growth and often partially stunted new fronds. They look so much prettier with full canopies besides.

      I am unable to identify this Sabal. The seeds are super tiny even smaller than W. filifera.
      It is very cold hardy as the recent snow storm in Austin with temperatures down to the upper single digits did not have even the slightest hint of damage while most other sabal (except for minor) got significant foliar damage, the Mediterranean fan palms got defoliated and some were killed and even some Trachycarpus fortunei sustained damage.

       
      The pictures below were taken exactly one year apart, so you can see the growth rate.

      I'm trying to figure out what I have here, 2 young palms but maybe enough features now to narrow it down.  Any ideas?
       
      Seedling #1 - Very lush green, aggressive root system, fast grower, looking like a Phoenix (maybe Canary or long shot rupicola) or I could be way off.
       

       
      Seedling #2 - Green with blue hue, moderate grower that seems to be getting a little faster, originally thought blue minor but it's been growing an above grown trunk.

      Hi, hope everybody had a great weekend. Can anyone help me ID this palm, if I'm not mistaken it's a date palm but I don't know which one specifically. As you can see it sprouted a lot of seedlings of which I have luckily potted a few.

      Hello all, glad to have found this forum, already have learned a bunch. 
      I was looking for help identifying a set of palm trees on my property, one appears to be thriving and the other is struggling. 
      They were placed in the ground around the same time about 9 months ago.  The struggling one started out with virtually no visible fronds/leafs and after about 5 months some growth finally started, but in the 4 months after it has only reached the point you see in the attached picture.  I'm wondering if I can expect that the struggling palm will eventually recover from this state and start growing like the other one.   Any advice is welcome.

      G'day all, just wondering what people think about the little coconut I've got as against the big one. The big one is a golden Malay dwarf, they are quite common in northern Western Australia and mine started out about the same size as the small one I have, I planted it 8 years ago now. The small one I bought about 3 years ago, does anyone think it may be a different variety? The reason I ask is that it is much slower growing than the large one, it is also much greener, the large one has a yellow stem to each frond and always has done even when it was small whereas the small palm has a green stem. The small one has never really been looked after over winters as against the big one which has always been protected in some way, up until this winter, yet the small one always seems to sail through winter almost unscathed. The small one I bought from a backyard nursery in the next suburb across from mine, they have lots of tropical plants they sell regularly but I don't know where they get their stock from. Anyway, curious to know what anyone thinks, any opinions are appreciated, cheers.
       
      2 pics of the small palm and 1 pic of the large palm for comparison.
