Nice pics Dave!  I think the 3 that you asked for the I.D. on are Ravenea rivularis.

Great 'hood!

 

I'm with Matt, the 3 look like "nicole ritchie Rivularis".... (compared to the monster Matt is creating..!!)  :D

Zone 10a at best after 2007 AND 2013, on SW facing hill, 1 1/2 miles from coast in Oceanside, CA. 30-98 degrees, and 45-80deg. about 95% of the time.

I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

I `m currently in the early stages of creating a devise to beam these palms to other neighborhoods. What I plan to do, is beam them up to my ship that is now in orbit around this planet. Then beam them down to your yard or hood. Like I said before I`m still in the early stages of completing this devise, little more medication and I think I`ll have it complete :P

Very nice!  The bizzies are beauties, and they're esp. good with the yellow-green foliage beneath for a good contrast.

I agree with BS - the 3 you asked for an ID look like Raveneas.

Oy, Dave, such a hood!

Hmm.  Attalea won't even grow for me, though I guess it will survive.

Oh, someone tell me I'm wrong, and where it is here in Cali . . . .

There's at least one in the jungle at the Huntington that's starting to get big (maybe 3m tall leaves)...

Ravenea rivularis = Majestic, Majesty. It's the one you find at just about every bigbox place that sells palms in their indoor section.

Clearly your picture illustrates how they should look, not how they always do look.

Nice photos.  Definitely don't have that interesting of street plantings around here.

Dave there is also an Attelea in Palm Canyon (Balboa Park) that has leaves pushing 3m.  I've been checking it every few months for the last few years and it is definitely growing, probably doubled in size since I first saw it.  When I was in Puerto Vallarta last October I stuffed a bunch of Attelea seeds into the door pocket of our rental car....wonder if they're still there doh!!!  They grow like weeds down there, mature palms and seedlings everywhere.

And shouldn't, for indoors.  These palms don't like the drier air in most homes - but outside, they shine.

The big-boxes picked the wrong Ravenea - there's another, which is much better for indoor-growing.

Clearly your picture illustrates how they should look, not how they always do look.

Very true, and they have quite a stately look, when planted in a row like that.

Just kidding Dave, I would need a serious biosphere to keep any of that alive here!

Great shots!

Also, which camera did you buy? We're looking for a new one with better optics, maybe a digital SLR but they seem a bit pricey!
