Variegated Washingtonia

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon! 
Today I saw a Variegated Washingtonia in Tempe Arizona, in front of someone’s business. First one I’ve seen in person randomly around. Enjoy.

Looks like the variegated leaves have some burn while the green do not.  Quite a striking palm!

I like the racing stripes on the petioles!

That is probably the best looking variegated palm I’ve seen. I’m usually not a “fan”of variegation but this one is great!

Thats awesome...I like the stripped petioles and the coloration is

great in that palm,to bad the light part burns but they probably grow fastest enough to 

always be putting out some nice leaves :greenthumb:

Looks to be a filibusta so at least a couple of years before it flowers.  I've seen them flower and set seed here with as little as 6' of trunk.

Aye

Would seeds from this palm produce variegated seedlings? Or would it just be completely random.

Very good chance that SOME of the seeds will produce varigation. Varigated plants generally don't look good in Arizona blazing summer sun though.

Beautiful, in the streetview link you can see that the palm only developed the variegation AFTER 2019. Before, it was a regular green filibusta.

      So I am currently on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. You can cross over from Portsmouth on the ferry, which takes about 30 minutes. The island is a palm paradise in general, but the southeastern portion is almost like a mini Califronia. I will let the photos do the talking. All these CIDP and Washingtonia were planted tiny about 10-15 years ago now.

      I'll start with the Trachycarpus Fortunei...



       
      Phoenix Canariensis...






       
      Brahea Edulus...


       
      Brahea Armata...


       
      Going in heavy with the Washingtonia now. Excuse the sun in my eyes...



















       
      There were several Jubaea Chilensis planted out...



       
      Butia Odorata...

       
      Chamaerops Humilis...

       
      Musa Basjoo...



       
      Cycas Revoluta...



       
      About a mile down the road we sat down to have lunch, as dolphin pods jumped out of the water while we ate...

       
      Off the coast of Niton, right next to the spot we ate at, I spotted a Washingtonia in a back yard. Unfortunately the garden was not really accessible to get photos, so I unlawfully hopped the fence to get some shots. Not really being one to follow rules, I am certainly glad I went over, since it turns out there were two Washies in that back yard...




       
      Massive palm updates from the Isle of Wight coming. I have barely scratched the surface here...

      Have a few Washingtonia robusta/filibusta started from seed and currently in 5 gallon pots. All of them were potted straight up or very nearly so. They now all lean a little or a lot to the south (towards the sun.)
      None of my other palms seem to be doing this. Is this normal? Should I try to fix it by turning the pots or will it matter when they go in the ground later this year? Probably not enough time to make much of a difference is what I think.
      When they go in the ground I'm guessing it is best to try to get them 'straight' again. Are they small enough to where it does not matter? They will be about 24" tall, smallish compared to big box store palms because they have been in the full AZ sun from Day One with no shade...

      What time of year does W. Filifera or Robusta flower and produce seed?

      Took a trip out to a Washingtonia filifera oasis this month.  I highly recommend it.  Easily accessible with some monster specimens.
