Unusual Rhapidophyllum hystrix

Recommended Posts

I saw this needle palm clump yesterday at the San Antonio Botanical Garden.  Anyone see something unusual?

I thought these 2 to be very unusual. The trunk was 4 feet tall and had to be 10 feet overall. A263E62F-657A-48AC-B73D-0C2BE8FD9856.thumb.jpeg.fc08fe02a3c9dc015e4187e3a039187a.jpeg4FF63DF8-5E79-48CE-968A-DE45D3C65A88.thumb.jpeg.f7361f530476cd4f14a71f35d649ae0d.jpegVarigated needle “moonshine”87BBE0E5-47F0-4564-B0EC-71512665B607.thumb.jpeg.30dec9b841ea9fb462ab0c7da5b930f2.jpeg

It’s hard to tell from my phone, but are a couple of the leaves variegated?

You're close.  Actually there are two different leaves from two different palms.  I didn't realize that the lighting of the original pic made it so hard to see the volunteer seedling growing in the clump.  I took another photo today from another angle.
