In Dronten at 52°32’N ??? That’s further north than my location! Unbelievable … :huh: And my (still juvenile, 12 years young) Waggies produce only two or three new leaves per year, and this at 49°23’N … :blush:

Wow!   Those waggies look awesome…I planted four 3 gallon size this season. I hope in my hot and humid climate they will grow to look as nice.

Hi Pal, I protect my palms in winter maybe that explains the difference in growth rate. ;) I planted my tallest Waggy in March 2004 with trunk size 10 cm. Its trunk is now 1.90 m. I planted 2 actually, one of them died unfortunately in the big freeze of 2011, when we had 2 nights of -17 and one night of -22˚C.

Hello Peter, when I first saw your photos I thought they were taken in Lugano or so, it’s really incredible :greenthumb::greenthumb::greenthumb: – Yes, the winter 2011/12 (esp. the long snow-free freeze of February 2012) killed also in Heidelberg almost all Trachys.

Nice garden Peter, the lawn is so green… just getting green grass here since it’s so dry this summer. 

They have a knack for grass in NL. 

Stunning Palms. I grow several wagnerianus from seed at the moment. They are to young to plant them. I can only hope they will look like that.

Alcibiades, so does Washington state, LOL!  

I have just one wagnerianus and its not as slow growing as one would think. Planted a one gallon three years ago, its done very good, yours will too.

Awesome display. 
Big waggie here in the garden doing perfect as well... growing speeds has been picked up the last few years. 
This spring I replanted a smaller one next to the bigger one to make a nice group. It is has a bit yellow because a very dry first 6 months this year, should be better next year.
