Only cut brown! It's not a pineapple folks. Not gonna get into planting this palm outside of a Mediterranean climate...

Such a gorgeous, elegant palm. They're all over the place here in coastal Los Angeles. Love seeing them against a fiery sunset.

Do you mean you personally won't plant it outside of a Med climate yourself? Or do you mean that you don't want to discuss it being planted in tropical and temperate regions? I'm just curious. It's a fantastic photo and I love the curved trunk CIDP in the middle. Thanks for posting it. :greenthumb:

Phoenix (canariensis, dactylifera, sylvestris) are great looking palms but IMHO don't jive with the rest of the palms/landscape in Florida.  Sabals, Livistonas,  Adonidia, Syagrus, Wodyetia, Rhapis, etc, etc, all have a nice lush, wet, humid, jungle look to them.  Then you have these random, glaucous, stabby, desert palms that look like they should be planted out with cactus and ocotillo and yuccas.  Which is cool but doesn't really fit Floridascaping.

Not the best palm for my climate. Still they are overplanted and overpruned.
