Sorry for the false start and self portrait.  The other Old Man, a Coccothrinax crinita I just planted yesterday.  It was an impulse purchase when I was getting a couple of other plants, but I couldn't resist it with its hairy trunk.  Not as common to see here in Southern California as perhaps Florida.  I decided to mix it in based on a contrasting texture rather than trying to coordinate it with other Cuban species.  In reality it would be difficult for me to plant anything in groups by place of origin, my garden is already a jumble of places.  So in it went near a Dypsis, a Ravenea, a Copernicia and several Encephalartos.  I'm happy with the end result that it will created with varying leaf forms and colors!

Funny intro Tracy!

As for the palm, they really become something as they put on some size with that hairy trunk.
