Another Aussie Palm Garden

Recommended Posts

Daryl

It's been a long time since I put up a garden post on PT. Our group (BPACS) recently visited the garden (and nursery) of Phil Redhead on the Sunshine Coast in southern Queensland. The garden is now 8 years old, and is starting to really take shape. Lots of nice species have been planted and it was a great morning to wander around and see some of Phil's treasures. For years Phil was a palm trader, sourcing palms from all over Australia for clients. He understandably has a great network of palm contacts and with the closure of several great palm nurseries, has embarked on the journey to create an awesome nursery and source of palms for Australia. Phil loves to spread the palm love and he deserves a lot of credit for investing heavily into the game...

 

Here's a few from the other weekend...a cloudy, drizzly late winter's day didn't deter us whatsoever...:D

Some awesome examples of species you got there. Pretty epic :greenthumb:

@Frond-friend42 It does look like one. if that is indeed an Vershaffeltia, it’s the nicest one I’ve ever seen without question.

Thank you. Lovely garden.

Not to be painful, but to some of us that are not experts the names of palms with the photos makes a world of difference :)

Well, it seems like winter to us, but it isn't too bad I guess! :D

That is Dypsis 'orange crush'...IPS director David Tanswell providing the love :D

Scott, I usually name them, but uploaded the photos and remembered later that you can't edit the posts after 30 mins (I think?) So I decided to keep everyone guessing and then post the names...:D

As you are in Brisbane you should come along to our next outing/meeting...

 

Anyway, for the benefit of all, the photos in order are:

 

Chambeyronia sp. houailou
Bismarckia/Latania lontaroides cross
Beccariophoenix fenestralis
Cocos nucifera
Areca catechu dwarf
Dypsis sp. Orange Crush
Cyrtostachys elegans/renda hybrid
Chambeyronia 'Watermelon'
Dypsis lastelliana and D.rivularis
Dypsis pembana
Euterpe edulis
Hyophorbe verschaffeltia/lagenicaulis hybrid
Tahina spectabilis
Dypsis sp
Dypsis baronii?
Caryota gigas/obtusa flowering way too early
Dypsis sp. 'bef'
Pinanga coronata
Dictyosperma album
Dypsis hybrid
Areca vestiaria intermediate form
Archontophoenix purpurea
Latania lontaroides
Pigafetta elata

 

 

regards,

Daryl

Thank you for adding names... I guessed many of them correctly (which I'm super proud of), but was surprised by some of the others.

- Loved seeing multiple houailou together (great look)
- So sad to see the Caryota flowering too soon (I have two and am dreading the day they flower)
- Considering adding a Tahina in one of the Caryota spots if seedlings are available by then. If not, then a Bismarckia... but Tahina is pure awesomeness.
- That Bismarckia/Latania cross is going to be amazing! Color is great... very curious how big it's going to get since the sizes are very different on these two.
- Your Chambeyronia 'watermelon' is one of the prettiest I've seen.
- Your pembana are very different than the ones I've seen photos of. Mine are clumping, so will probably be bushier.
- Wish I could grow B. fenestralis where I am... I'm coaxing a B. madagascarensis along (and will for many years), but still think the fenestralis is the prettiest. Wish my area supported it.
- I have two Dypsis 'orange crush' that are super-tiny. I'll go give them a big HUG to see if it helps (maybe hugs are the true "secret").

Thanks for sharing!

@Daryl, the Dypsis sp. bef is unbelievable. I have a D. Heteromorpha and I’ve read they can be hard to tell the difference. If mine looks even half as good as this example…I’m going to be ecstatic. 
 

ive always been a fan of the Dictosperma Album. The one pictured looks great. 
 

the D. Hybrid is another beauty. I love how there is so many hybrids with the Dypsis species. Of course the purists disagree but it makes for beautiful looking trees.

Thank you,

Yes, would be nice to visit some gardens. The names helped me a lot.

Wouldn’t mind some Caryota gigas/obtusa seeds :)

Cheers

Wow!!

Great tour and very nice looking specimen! 

The image of that Bismarckia/Latania cross is spectacular - red and silver - it must 

be looking awesome in a couple of years! 

Thank you very much for sharing!
