Few braheas

Recommended Posts

akaranus

Among the best palms for cooler climate gardens.   They all saw 3 nights down to -8C in 2017 at my place.  Brahea armata, edulis, nitida, super silver, dulcis blue and acuelata.  Armata is the fastest, and acuelata slowest.

Dont know your climate but -10C with some protection while young shouldnt be a bigger problem

I am in zone 8b pnw.  We could grow them but they won't be very happy due to lack of heat and too much rain. The ones, we can grow are Brahea armata, Brahea clara, and possibly Brahea edulis.  Here is the pic of my Clara.

@Trustandi thank you for posting that pic. I was unaware of any B clara in the PNW. I can say edulis may be the best one for us as I have seen photos of that huge one in Seattle and have heard of success in other areas as well. 
 

@akaranus your colllection is very impressive. If I’m not mistaken you have some really great videos on YouTube of your garden. Definitely one of my favorites.

@akaranusthey are so beautiful. I love Claras. It will grow big much faster in your climate.

@Chester BI am trying the Edulis. It is still small 5g size from Phil - junglemusic. Let's hope it is happy in my garden
