Great pictures Kris, you obviously have no shortage of plants.  The "pink sisters" plant in post 123, I assume is a Cordyline cultivar, it doesn't look dissimilar to one of the plants I purchased recently, although somewhat larger than mine.

Dear Friends Thanks for those sweet & encouraging words. :)

And thanks for those I.D's.

Thanks to Colin & Jacob.

Mike_we use neem oil for spraying on our trees.i will tell you about it later.in seperate thread on organic ferts & pestesides.

Sunny thanks for the I.D's

Micheal_thanks for the I.D's on that edible leaves.

Derek Batke_I thought my variety of phoenix is Ph.Loureiri_

mountain date palm.but if its the sylvestres Sp.then iam the

happiest man on earth.since all the phoenix are in that area itself_date palms 2 verities,local dwarf phoenix and in future

the red fruticas_CIDP will also inhabit this very same region.

so i was told about hybridisation.think 3 to 4 varities crossing

to give rise to a dream palm.certainly those seeds will be

sent to all our folks for research growing.i love new forms of

species in this variety.

Jake K thanks for your comments.

Hai Carlo_thanks for those kind words & the plant I.D's

Al in kona_thanks for the plant I.D and for your beautiful stills.

Brain_Bamboo species I.D not known,since we collect plants

that pleases to our eyes.ANd we do not have any flowering problems yet.

Mike.M thanks for the info on photoshop elements,i do have a

software that was given with the camera.but time is a constrain for uploading it & go about shooting images.

You are a good man, Kris.

What does your Mom think of all your palms?

How about some photos of her standing next to your favorites?

Dear Jeff  :)

Hey i have exhausted almost all the grown up specimens of

palms.and some of the palms are preety small either in

small barrels or in mineral water bottle.it will certainly take

a while for those to put up minium few leaves.

and i have even asked the local nurseries to inform me if

any new & nice grown up specimens arrive at there place_

the stocks usually come from Kerala,Banglore & hydrabad.

I want some time to fullfill your wish_my friend !  :)

Dear Kathy  :)

She is bit fussy to pose for the camera ? reason she cannot

digest the truth that she is growing old.i think women folks

should understand her psycology !

but as and when i get an oppurtunity,i will certainly ask her

to stand near the palm.as for her taste she likes,lilly,jasmine,

all the flowering_except huge trees that would include even

massive palms.

but does not interfear with my taste & desires in palm collection.for that matter she insists to come along with me

whenever i go to priviate nurseries.since she could see all the

flowering plants there.and hibiscus also happens to be here

favouriate.

her most favouriate palm will be Areca palms,dypsies & the

livistonia under which iam standing all were planted by her

when i was say14 or 15 years kid.

And iam posting in this thread even other plants because i get

an oppurtunity to get plant I.D,so that it will help me do some

tagging on them.

And Jeff,Clayton and other nursery guys i really miss you guys

if you are my neighbour all i have to do is give you my list of

palms to you and just pay the bill & carry the palms to my

home_how simple is that ?  :D

Thanks & Love to all,

Kris.

The leaves change shape as they get older developing 'ears' as they mature.

Wow wow wowy wow wow!  I finally got time to look at this whole thread!  Kris, my friend, you are truly sick.  :D   Anyone who can fit that many beautiful plants into a small urban garden deserves to win the container garden of the year award.  Your prize will be a work force of ranch hands to help with the gardening. :laugh:   Thanks for all you time in posting these pictures.  And now that we know what you look like we'll spot you if you're ever in California.  Thanks again for a great thread! :)

Dear Matty  :)

its really great to hear from you.and thanks for those kind

words of encouragement.

But only Bill ranch hands from the playboy_plamate group

will save me from the boredrum.and iam not joking,that is the

reason i have not placed any smilly icon in this statement.they

are very beautiful and have a bowling over effect on me.

And bill what happened to your ranch hands.i suppose there

is no blanket ban on beautiful women posing with palms

decently attired..

My special thanks to larry & Zac  :) you guys have made my day.since i was struggling to get those I.D's fixed.since me &

my mom buy plants that pleases our eyes.we are not concerned by their generic or botanical name as such.

but when anybody ask me i simply grin saying i dont know !

which they do not believe..

Dear Ray_thanks for visiting our small house garden  :)

And matty i will visit California(Beverly hills in perticular)

and floridia(Maimami)because its Hot.. :D

and certainly to your place & your friends and see wheather

you can really recognise me !  :P

Love,

Kris.

Dear Edwards  :)

thanks for your comments.

Dear Bo Goran  :)

Sir, you are all ways welcome.and i must say my mom is

a fan of tennis star_Beon Borg(Sweden) & she loves

swedish women who used to win miss universe in her

youth..And hawaii_Hona lulu has been my dream destination from childhood days.and iam fasinated by

those beautiful native women dancers with pulmeria

flowers lined up in there head & in their garland..

and the mandolin gituar they play in beach resorts is

simply fascinating to me.

the local music is also worth listning.

as i said iam like a Dog never satisfied with little,i will

be there may be 5 to 6 years from now.right now iam

held up with my commitments of earning to make my

old age a peaceful one.iam sacred of old age plans !

and in my youth i used to think that iam 007 like

sean conery.but as neared by 35 birthday and with

grey hairs coming in  my chest,head & mustache,i realised that reality is far from the silver screen.and

now iam thinking of setteling down in life & also do

some finiancial planning for my retirement age  :)

And Dear Bo Goran_even i wish that you visit India..

Dear Don Kittelson  :)

thanks for your comments and it really ment a lot to me,

since your thread & post is very intresting since i love

brazil,amazon river,amazon gever green forest and

last but not the least its jolly good & happy people.

i consider them a people living life fully every single day.

thanks & love,

Kris  :)

That's oleander, which is widely planted in Southern California.  The leaves, flowers, etc. are poisonous.

I had five very large ones along my driveway.  Last spring I had them removed (they had to grind the stumps) so I could plant palms!

Kris,

35!!! You're still a young man, with many years ahead of you! But nothing wrong with planning ahead. And I look forward to seeing you here in Hawaii, and hopefully it won't be as long as 6 or 7 years from now! ???
