I repeat... this is just the London region only. I've probably missed a fair few, especially ones lurking in back yards. I know of quite a few more that are out there.

Am I right when I say that I see a lot of filifera's in these pictures? And what a fantastic garden with the Jub chilensis.

Most of London's washies are Filibusta hybrids, but yes, a lot of them are also pure Filifera, or Filifera dominant hybrids. There are some pure Robusta's, but not many. There is certainly more Filifera looking washies about than Robusta looking washies, as you mention. It's surprising how well Filifera seems to do in London, given its reputation as a cool, wet, gloomy city. In reality, London is relatively dry (20 inches annually) and Filifera can obviously take more wet-cold than first realised, given that large specimens don't take any damage during a London winter. 

I need to get an update from the guy with the big Filifera and the Jubaea as the picture isn't very recent. He has some decent sized Syagrus Romanzoffiana planted out as well. There are quite a few washies that I need to get further updates on. There are a number of back yard specimens that I haven't even been able to get pictures of. There is probably another 100 or so like these that are hidden away in back yards, which aren't visible on street view. For every front yard washie, there is going to be a back yard one somewhere. I am waiting for street view to update for a number of London washies and CIDP's, so 2022 is probably going to be a crazy year for London palms.

      This Washingtonia hybrid seedling is about 9.5 months old and I noticed about a month ago how the trunk was starting to curve. This morning I was removing the oldest frond noticed that the boot ripped right off revealing what looks to be like the trunk rotting on bottom of one side, it’s all black.
       
      not sure if this is from bugs, or if that spot just kept getting wet. Other than this the palm looks fine. Newest frond is steadily growing

      Apparently this has developed into a thing now in the UK. Well southern England anyway... just crazy...
      Ashley Road, Ryde





       
      New Esplanade Court, Paignton



       
      The White House / Cary Court, Torquay





       
      The Earls Court pool CIDP is about 15-20 foot now, but it is dwarfed by the 30 foot Robusta. That CIDP will start putting on 3 foot of growth per year now though at that size, like the others. 



       
      Splashdown Quaywest waterpark in Paignton has a lot of CIDP's growing there, which will be as big as some of the others I have posted in another decade or so...




       
      North Ford Road, Dartmouth

       
      Anyone got any photos of big CIDP's towering over pools? These UK ones are a work in progress still obviously. I know a lot of people are against the idea of growing CIDP's next to pools and having them tower over eventually like the ones in the first picture I posted. I know some people feel the same with Washies and many other big/tall palms. Personally, I love the look of it.

      Trying to grow a triple trunked robusta trip and wondering if anyone has any tips or advice. I’ve germinated 3 seeds and placed them close together in a pot, are they too close together?
