After all these years I finally made a visit to Dave’s Jardin de Palmas.  WoW!  Beautiful specimens.  I picked up 6 palms While there (3 C Radicalis tree form, Spindle, A. Maxima, Dypsis Lafamanzanga).

A few pictures.  Thank you Dave!

Behind that Licuala is one of my favorites on the property. It’s a super happy Kentiopsis Oliviformis. It’s perfect 

….that and the massive Dypsis Baronii on the other side of the house. Killer trees among what seems like 100’s of epics. :yay:

 

@el-blanco nice pickup :greenthumb:

The weepy onilihensis is just awesome. I've bought a number of "weepy" forms in the past, but none turn out like that. Beautiful garden!

Lots of people don't know this, but La Habra is Spanish for The Habra.

Spectacular!  I am reminded of a PSSC visit to a private garden in Oceanside in around 2010 that was impressive in a similar way, good memories.

When you say "Chamies" though my first thought is "Chamaerops" and I couldn't see them!  Cold climate bias :lol:
