Nothing’s quite as pretty as Maxie in the morning

Below is a recent picture of my big Archontophoenix maxima right outside my front door aglow in the light of morning 

Maybe share nice morning pictures of your plants?

Ask Dave and you shall receive. This is my favorite morning view of my garden.

Our summers due to the Santa Ana winds hurt our palms more than our winter does.

Morning fog down here in Loo-K-D-a which has made it hard to distinguish the time of day, other than daylight.  That said, I'll share a couple of early morning sites up.  First photo is a solitary Dypsis onilahensis weeping form planted between my house and the garage.  Second has one of my favorites up front, but also includes some other palms in the edges and background.

Here’s a new frond on one of my Alfredii opening up and enjoying the morning sun after a few foggy days here in Leucadia. Great to see new fronds pushing during the off season. I’ve been giving this palm tons of water plus a bit of compost tea brewed with earthworm castings, alfalfa meal, bat guano, fish emulsion, etc. It seems to be responding well

Nothing impressive here, all but the coconut are only about a year in ground.  Yeah, I snuck in a bamboo photo but sheesh, in the AM light this guy...

This Alex is a bit chopped up by the recent winds and storms we've had, but the sunrise silhouetted it nicely

My yard was thrashed pretty bad a couple weeks ago by Santa Anna’s. Everything is going to look rough until summer.

Veitchia vitiensis on a cloudy morning. The crown shaft on this thing always gets a double take.

The striping on the crownshaft reminded me of the striping on many New Caledonia genera/species such as some of the Burretiokentia and Cyphophoenix.  Very attractive with that almost black color Tim.  Thanks for sharing that one.

Thanks Tracy! I acquired four of these palms as bare root seedlings, two died, one was and still is wimpy, and the other has always been robust. It does look rather New Cal-ish and the crown shaft gun metal grey.

If you put them side by side they look different but think they both come from Fiji … I think

Due to my south facing side yard being along a street, the morning sun this time of year creates a full exposure when the sun isn't hiding behind morning marine layer.  Dypsis pembana on the outside, and several other palms peaking up over the wall from the inside.  Fortunately those are not power lines the D pembana is running through, only phone lines.... we all remember those right?  That was from the days before everyone had wireless phones.

Thanks! I've learned that year-round color makes me happy... thus lots of bromeliads, crotons, bloodleaf, etc.  I might cut back on the color a bit when the palms get bigger. Other than the one "cheater" flamethrower I bought large from Rancho Soledad most are pretty tiny... but going to be cool someday (esp the Bentinckia condapanna,
Dypsis lafamazanga, Brahea decumbens, and my beloved Tribear). I'm moving onto the next area of the garden now. This is the first area I've completed... but much more to come!

Good Morning!

I just got up, opened the curtains and went out...

Archontophoenix alexandrae

Veitchia joannis

Enjoying the morning sun, too - a very common but nice looking Dypsis lutescens.

ms05.thumb.jpg.7b97b6abc4b0fe756833a8702c3a1f90.jpg

This one has probably the shortest period of direct sunlight during the day - 

so it seems to take in as much as it can - Hyophorbe lagenicaulis.

ms06.thumb.jpg.5f85216f3ced8219877b2e9ff751d407.jpg

I love looking at this one every time - Dictyosperma album var. aureum.

ms07.thumb.jpg.d64a394fb21b5d1057d317ef76449503.jpg

Looking forward to another warm day - Elaeis guineensis.

All right then - time for breakfast!

No Maxie in the AM mind you, but young Pritchardia in the PM looked nice.

Which species of Pritchardia if you know?  I have something that looks similar that had a label that I think is wrong from when I got it as a little 1 gallon seedling in 2013.

I'm not sure what that is, I bought it with no label at a non-palm nursery so I've been assuming it is a common form and maybe the Fiji Fan Palm?

In my yard, there is alot of shade, lots of dappled light, except out front.  Bismarckia is white along with blue greens from sabal uresana, copernicia alba and serenoa repens silver.  On the other side is the bright spot, most intense early morning sun.  Copernicias need space to view in morning sun at this size so I shoot across the driveway sun at my back.  This view of bailey and fallaense against the sky is only possible since my neighbors grow so little in live landscaping, just grass nearby.

Can you give a picture of your purty lil’ fan palm’s base? Maybe it’s something other than a Pritchardtia?

Brad, one more photo would be helpful and that is the underside of a  fully opened leaf to see how much or if any lepidia or fuzz is on the inside of the folds.  This one clearly is showing plenty of fuzz on the fold as shown in your second photo of the new leaf blade opening, but that doesn't always also occur inside the creases.  That information will be just another diagnostic tool.  It is a beautiful palm!

Dave, sorry for the diversion and minor highjack of the thread, but you seem as interested as I do in this one and it's your thread.

Hijacking was popular in the 1970’s but has a different connotation these days…

 

Rainy and muted light so not sure if these convey the fuzz or lack thereof…EDIT, I see how blurry now, so I need to redo this first one when the light improves!

A clear cold morning as the sun rose here with a little Santa Ana wind.  This creates our coldest mornings resulting a little frost on the northwest facing rooftops in the neighborhood.  So the sun rising was a much appreciated sign of warming for the garden.  Long shadows still dominated the views, but they also create some interesting contrast for photos.  I loved the grid pattern shadow on the palm trunk in the first photo as light came through a decorative screen; it's main subject is a No Id Coccothrinax species.  Laelia gouldiana "Greta Garbo" opening it's first flower of the season in second photo.  Third photo is Dypsis bef with only it's tips in the full sunlight.  Final photo is a Cycad that was below an inflorescence that I just removed off the adjacent palm.  Seeds can be seen at it's base, but I think it will appreciate the additional sunlight now that the inflo above has been removed.

Here are a few of my palms catching some meager, early winter light this morning. Coconut struggling to make a comeback after getting some sort of crown fungus at the end of last winter, some Dypsis lutescens babies growing from seed thrown on the ground in the ditch behind my house enjoying probably the only scraps of sunlight they will see today, foxtails etc. from different angles. Got down to about 47F last night, it has been awhile since it has been that cool. At least the days are getting a little longer now ;)
