As silly as it may seam, that is not a "true" super DD. A red spear is found throughout DD as are green. So that is not the identifying characteristic. Mardy Darian coined super DD based off an adult's appearance. It had much more color in the crownshaft, red spear, some had opening reddish leaves, but the hardened off leaves on Super DD are glaucous. One thing I have noticed from smaller super DD is that the leaflets are regular where other DD are irregular like yours shows. I said "silly" because obviously people are going to provide their own labels and in the end it is still just a DD. Just a different looking forum someone added a title to. But if people are looking for a DD like the Super DD Mardy coined and found in his garden, this ain't it. Plus only a few people had this plant available for sale here, one being Mardy.

Does anyone have any problems with their dypsis decipiens??  I've killed 6  really big 25 gal's in the last 2 years. They are very fussy and root sensitive and hate to be over watered. your in put would be greatly appreciated :greenthumb::greenthumb:

 

I just planted out two 25 gals today and I hope I don't have any more problems in the future.

I lost a 24" boxed DD a few years ago at the old place.  I left in the open lawn for a month and when I went to plant it, it was already sending roots through box and into the ground.  There was some root damage and it only went backwards from there and died.....I cried.  I can't image loosing 6, that should require some sort of special memorial.:crying:

Josh, looks nice, sorry about your DDs...

What amendments do you add to your soil around the rootballs? There are piles of blue bags of something on your pictures, and is the formula different for each species?

Hi Ando, those are actually bags of mortar for the stone work that is being done in the garden. :) 

As far as amending the soil......I  dont. The soil where my garden is absolutely phenomenal. I really lucked out.

I Just planted  a really nice Sea shore palm (allagoptera arenaria) Wednesday morning at  the VISTA garden.This palm was strategically planted under the J. Caffra so they would not compete for space. I never liked this palm until I saw them in habitat in Brazil. You can say I had a change of heart...lol

enjoy the pic's :)

That's awesome, Josh!

 

Thanks Ando!!

This project has been over whelming to say the least. It's fun to see a blank canvas transform into a tropical oasis. 

Call or PM me if you would like to have a personal tour?

OMG

I haven't caught up with this thread since my last post on the first page..... :o CRAZY CRAZY stuff Josh. Never have I seen a D. managerensis planted at such a size :o!

Too many great specimens to name but the all the Coccothrinax, Copernicia and most of the Dypsis (Not including Plumosa ;)) are bloody rippers!!!! Great stuff!! I'm sure there is more to come, I remember a thread about a large Ravenea xerophila that you dug a while ago...... I'm expecting to see that palm in the ground soon?

I keep laughing watching this thread... (in a good way Josh)... I wonder which one of us will finally make it to the others place to see their gems.. (although I did get to your Carlsbad pad)

 

Looking great my friend!

You have a great memory. I'm planning on putting the Ravenea X erophila in the ground in about 2-3 weeks. Its almost rooted into the 30" i put it in over a year ago.

Thanks for the kind comments :)

Here is a not so common and a very hard to find palm that was planted at the VISTA garden last Wednesday. Its a brahea Moorei that was in a 24" box. No doubt this is a specimen size plant and I was very lucky to get one this size. My helper and I took great care in planting this in its final resting place. It took a long time to plant it since they are very root sensitive as most braheas are.

 

Please enjoy the pictures :)

I love this palm!  I remember checking it out thinking it was something other than a Brahea.  I need to get one of those on the hill so I can look up it from the patio.

They are extremely hard to find. It took me years to find this one and I had to dig it out of a garden.

Just planted this monster (for California standards) dypsis madagascariensis lucubensis thingy on Thursday. It's no doubt a cool and colorful palm. The new emergent spear is orange and the leaf arrangement is very plumose. 

 

please enjoy :)

In a word... WOW! Incredible soil,mature material;instant garden.I also like how you plant a little below grade.When covered with mulch,those trunks will be sprouting new roots leading to faster growth and healthier palms.VERY WELL DONE!!!!!

Thanks Scott. You nailed exactly what I'm trying to achieve..

It's not easy to get big mature specimens to start with here in California or anywhere in the west coast.

Nobody has big mature dypsis for sale here in california. I'm trying to change the Norm here so to speak of..

I have lots of big dypsis for sale currently.

Thanks for the kind note.

most of the palm talkers who have visited the garden are calling the "dypsis ankaizinensis" or "dypsis type B" what ever it is is bad ass!! :D

It's a fun to look at palm for sure..

 

Thanks for looking :)   I hope you have enjoyed the pictures so far. I'm always open to feedbag and you comments...

 

Cheers,

Congratulations! Wonderfull work, palms and project!

Does Vista get some frost? What about your microclimate (totaly frost free)?

Do you plan to plan some Encephalartos and other cycad?

All the best.

HOLY CRAP!!!!! That's an instant mature garden. You put some work in that's for sure. Looks crazy good. Can't wait to see it. When are you going to crane in the 40foot washies?

Hi Jean-Michel,

The lower parts of my property can get a light frost on those rare cold events that California can occasionally get. Where the garden is planted is on top of the hill (405'), south facing and really good micro climate. I'm planting lots of canopy trees to give it that rain forest feel.

 

I'm not certain about cycads yet. I still have not been bitten by that bog yet.

Thanks for you awesome feedback.:)
