You can totally tell the general zone of said gardens just by what’s planted. :P

Is losing track of how many palms you own one of the "symptoms" of being a palm nut? If so, I've officially joined the club! Oh, and I haven't even placed my floribunda order yet (lol). I'll be making my own "thread" soon, but here are trunks of three of my favorites...

That’s a very impressive amount of sabals! What’s your thoughts on the nannorrhops arabica?

Thanks. I still have a few more Minors to add, Emerald Island Giant,  Etonia I have in pots & I'm germinating McCurtain seeds now. I also have Sabal Maritima & Lisa in pots but I think I won't plant those & keep them as back ups. 

Nannorrhops Arabica is definitely more cold sensitive. It's leaves burn a tad with temperatures in the low 20's. It's extremely drought tolerate once established but I suspect it won't appreciate constant moisture all winter as well as in summer. I planted 1 at my sisters house 9 years ago & its still there despite no supplemental water & fertilizer. She's even weedwhacked it a few times lol! On average we get about 6-7 inches of rain, all of it mostly in winter. Really tough palm. Mines been in the ground since spring 2019.

This forum can easily be called "Palm-aholics Anonymous", but instead of curing you, it enables you to buy more palms.

Same here, I’ve got a lot in pots right now. I’m really interested in the emerald island giant. I’ve got seeds germinating of nannorrhops ritchiana, I think they’re worth giving a shot in a super protected raised bed here. Still pretty rare in the states, but if I lived anywhere hot and dry I would be experimenting with ritchiana and arabica for sure.

I missed a couple in my list, though nothing too exotic...Adonidia merillii,  Acoelorrhaphe wrightii, Sabal domengensis and some what I'll call native Sabal species in the yard as well.

Should be adding more after this weekends CFPACS meeting and trip to MB Palms on Orlando.  Shhhhh, don't tell wife! :drool:

Joe, skip the count inventory and come to the confessional on the species you have represented.

My garden is a mix of Palms, Aloes, Aloidendron, Cycads and a few trees, so the Palm count isn't that high and neither the home I live in nor my previous garden which is now a rental are that big of properties (about 1/4 acre each).  I was looking at the species diversity between the two, and the newer planted garden here in Leucadia is more diverse on Palms, Cycads, Aloes and Aloidendron than my older garden.  I will skip pots in plants which may or may not stay and just list species that are in the ground in the respective properties.

Love your garden @Jim in Los Altos!  

Having been to @waykoolplantz garden, the description and photos just can't do it justice.  It's something you have to see for yourself.

Don't worry, Scott.  The CFPACS has a code of silence that would make the KGB jealous. B)

I’m in zone 6b Ohio so I’m pretty limited in what I can pull off here. Here’s what I have planted in the ground.

1 Rhapidophyllum Hystrix

4 Sabal Minor 

1 Sabal Causiarum

2 Trachycarpus Fortunei (supposed to be the variant Winsan)

10+ Chamaedorea Radicalis

1 Washingtonia Robusta

1 Syagrus Romanzoffiana

The Washingtonia and Syagrus hasn’t been through a winter here and I doubt they’ll make it but I’m still giving it a shot.

Also not palms but I have 2 Cycas Revoluta that have been in the ground for 4 years.

Yes, you do need more palms. The Sabal louisiana are only in pint containers right now. I purchased 100 seeds last year and 27 germinated, so I collected the seeds that didn't germinate and replanted them this spring. So far, a bunch more are popping up. The chamaedorea species will be used in mass plantings for privacy and noise control in my forest.

Never toss out palm seeds that haven't rotted.

3 Beccariophoenix alfredii (2 seedlings still in pots)

2 Chamaedorea cataractarum

1 Chambeyronia macrocarpa

5 Syagrus romanzoffiana

2 Syagrus weddeliana 

21 palms and 7 species officially but I get a lot of windmill palm seedlings that come up as weeds because they have naturalized in the wooded areas nearby…

One of the best threads I’ve seen!!

I’m in zone 6b Ohio so I’m pretty limited in what I can pull off here. Here’s what I have planted in the ground.

1 Rhapidophyllum Hystrix

4 Sabal Minor 

1 Sabal Causiarum

2 Trachycarpus Fortunei (supposed to be the variant Winsan)

10+ Chamaedorea Radicalis

1 Washingtonia Robusta

1 Syagrus Romanzoffiana

The Washingtonia and Syagrus hasn’t been through a winter here and I doubt they’ll make it but I’m still giving it a shot.

Also not palms but I have 2 Cycas Revoluta that have been in the ground for 4 years.

I grew up in that neck of the woods, incredibly impressive to be growing any of that stuff, great work. 

 

Here on my 1/4 acre in FL -

Dypsis lutescens

Dypsis decaryi 

Phoenix roebelenii

(These first three were the only palms on the property when I moved in. The triangle is a great specimen that I'm proud of, can't say the same for the others.)

Here's what I've added over the past two years, along with several hundred non-palm species: 

Serenoa repens

Chamaedorea elegans

Chamaedorea metallica

Chamaedorea seifrizii

Chamaedorea cataractarum

Licuala peltata var. sumawongii

Chambeyronia macrocarpa

Veitchia arecina

Saribus rotundifolius

Pinanga 'Thai Mottled'

Roystonea regia (I potted up some volunteer seedlings, and there's a big one overhanging the property line.)

 

Looking through this thread I'd say my list is way too short!

That’s impressive for Ohio, heavy protection on some of those?

Yeah, the only palms I’m growing unprotected is Sabal Minor and Rhapidophyllum Hystrix. I actually left some Chamaedorea Radicalis seedlings unprotected this past winter they defoliated after a low of 7F but all of them are growing back.

I guess I can ask for forgiveness now...

See Joe, it wasn't so painful.  Now you can go out and plant some more knowing that you have confessed for your past transgressions, compulsive purchases and acquisitions of species you already had.  Perhaps a future thread will be what have you purchased or planted since you last confessed.

Wow!

Are those rads from any of my seeds?

Yes! They came from you, all 5 seedlings I left unprotected are still alive. Here they are today.

That would be tropical/sub-tropical fruit trees!

Pretty standard 1/4 acre. Lots of palm density. I left a few genus out of my list like Jubaeopsis and Polyandrococcos. Here are a few garden shots...

James you never cease to amaze with your beautiful garden!

I love your garden Jim. It seems to be an endless jungle. Apart from all the absolutely healthy fruiting palms I especially love your pond and bridge surrounded by lush jungle. Inspirational stuff.

BTW, what the 70's car in the driveway? It looks like a Ford of some sort. Real cool.

Thanks! The car is a 1973 Mercury Cougar. It’s color goes well with the landscape.
