I already bought a bunch of each of these and it's still painful to see!  One man's (or woman's!) trash is a another man's treasure

      What time of year does W. Filifera or Robusta flower and produce seed?
    • PalmatierMeg
      By PalmatierMeg
      I got Archonotophoenix maxima seeds by the 1,000s that need a new home. This afternoon I was picking ripe seeds off the ground for a buyer when my husband, against my wishes and at great risk to life and limb, climbed a ladder way up to the monstrous infructescenses loaded with ripe seeds and started cutting them down. Down they came while seeds flew all over the ground and seawall and rained into the canal. The ground turned blood red. Sprinklers go off tonight so we grabbed a crate and spent the next hour picking up all the seeds we could find. Now our gain can be your gain.
      Archo max may be the rarest of the king palms in the US. That's unfortunate because it is reputedly the cold hardiest of the king palms, according to Palmpedia, surviving mid-20s with 60% leaf burn. It is also the largest king palm and boasts the largest inflorescenses - I vouch for that. It is also quite fast growing. Check out the link below:
      http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Archontophoenix_maxima
      If you have ever dreamed of filling your front yard with Archo maximas, this is your chance to do so in only a few years at minimal cost. Seeds are uncleaned because I haven't the time or energy to do so. But they are so ripe they practically clean themselves. Seeds are easy and fast to germinate given plenty of warmth.
      Archonotophoenix maxima fresh uncleaned seeds: First 50 @ $10.00    Additional quantities @ $5.00 per 50 seeds
      Shipping for up to 100 seeds = $5.00   Higher quantities by quote
      I cannot ship seeds outside the US. No shipping to HI

      http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Archontophoenix_maxima
      Archonotophoenix maxima Seedlings: $2.00 each. Minimum order = $20.00   NOTE: I am listing other palm seedlings and you are welcome to mix & match species

      Mother Palm

      As an avid Washie fan who has been following their growth over here in the UK for several years, I thought I better compel a photo journal showing the biggest specimens over here and their growth rates. It appears that Filifera does perform better than Robusta here, in regards to cold hardiness. There are many more mature Filifera's around than Robusta's for instance, although Washingtonia in general does good in London and the south coast of England. As you move inland however, you will only see Filifera or hybrids.
      I'll start with what I believe is a pure Robusta at Peter Cavendish's home in Earl's Court, London. The first photo was taken in 2014...

      And again in 2020...


       
      Next we move onto another very impressive specimen. A Filibusta hybrid in Wimbledon, London. This was grown from seed in I think 1997 and it looked like this 10 years ago...

      And this is what it looks like now...


       
      Next up is what is probably one of the biggest Washie's in the UK, certainly on the mainland at least. It is located at Minster-On-Sea, which is about 20 miles east of London. This one is almost certainly a Filibusta hybrid too. I think the trunk is a little bit too fat to be a Robusta...?
      Here it is in 2009...

      And here it is now...


       
      Many of you have also probably seen Dave Brown's Filibusta hybrid in Kent, which looked like this back in 2007. He did a few videos on it surviving snow and cold winters...

      Well this is what Dave's washie looks like nowadays... 


       
      Robusta's or Filibusta hybrids in Richmond, London near to Kew Gardens. First picture from 2012...

      And then 7 years later in 2019...

       
      Another Filibusta hybrid in Little Venice, London... shown back in 2013...

      And then 7 years later, now...

       
      I think the one in Chelsea Physic Garden, London is also a Filibusta hybrid. Here it is roughly a decade ago...

      And again in 2019...


       
      Probable Filibusta hybrid in a front garden in Southsea, Portsmouth. Here it is back in 2011 looking tiny...

      And more recently in 2020...


       
      Now onto the Filifera's, starting with Barry's one in Edmonton, North London, which is possibly the biggest Filifera in the UK now at 30 foot tall. Here is his Filifera about 15 years ago...

      And this is how Barry's Filifera looks today!



       
      The other contender for the UK's biggest Filifera is the monster at Canvey Island, just east of London. It looked like this back in 2009...

      But now it looks like this...




       
      Here's what looks like another big Filifera growing in Chingford, Essex. First shown in 2011...

      And then fast forward 9 years to now...

       
      There's another decent sized Filifera in Dulwich, London as well, which looked like this in 2008...

      And looks like this now...

       
      There appears to be a Filifera growing in a front garden in Thorpe Bay, Essex. You can just about see it's fronds back in 2009...

      But it looked like this a decade later in 2019...

       
      Another big Filifera on the Isle of Dogs in East London...


       
      A Filibusta hybrid, or possibly a Filifera, in a Wimbledon back garden...



       
      Another Filifera at Battersea Park, London...


       
      Filibusta hybrids at Sandsfoot Gardens, Weymouth


       
      Growth on a London street Washie from 2014...

      And then fast forward to 2020...

       
      There were a number of 5-6 foot washies planted at Ventnor Botanic gardens, which looked like this after the bad winter of 2010...

      And this is them in recent years, a decade or so later...






      The Abbey Gardens at Tresco has by far the tallest Washie in the UK with a 45 foot tall Robusta... however I don't have any 'before' pictures unfortunately...

       
      Tresco's Filibusta hybrid however has gone from this in 2011...

      To this now...

       
      Lastly, some big Robusta's at a private facility in the Docklands in east London. This place is supposedly used for hosting business magnates. Quite a weird location to place them. Here they are shortly after planting in late 2017...

      And then about 6 months later...

      9 months later they're looking nice and healthy. The tallest Robusta's must be about 30-35 feet tall.

      I have a 10" pot of 60+ seedlings of Ptychosperma robusta from my mother palm. About 10 years ago I bought a young clustering Ptychosperma at a sale. The seller called it "Ptychosperma robusta", which was not then and is not now a valid binomial, to my knowledge. He knew nothing else about it. When it was smaller I posted photos in hope someone on the forum would recognize it but got no response. Anyway it has grown quite large and so tall I can't easily photograph its crown. I remove its offsets to keep it at two stems that are 4-5" diameter each, quite chunky by Ptychosperma standards. It grows quickly, flowers and seeds easily and ripe fruit is vibrant red. The infructescences are so high up we can no longer reach them with ladders or pole saws. As a result seedlings pop up all around it in the jungle. The other day I dug up over 80 seedlings and rather than compost them, will find them a new home. I can say this unknown species is completely hardy here and took down to 38F last winter. I hope some enterprising palm lover can offer these seedlings a home. And I hope someone can give it a valid name if one exists. Seedlings will be sent via Priority Mail with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil. Take  a leap into the unknown. See summary below
      Ptychosperma sp "Robusta": 60+ rooted seedlings @ $18.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail.   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
