Now these are some ancient filifera... would be curious to know when they were planted. Just look at those trunks

Multi trunked Phoenix roebelleni next to the house. Probably bought at Home Depot. Would be surprised if it doesn’t die this week. Top fronds got pretty burned during the freeze a few weeks ago

I have been seeing a lot of these in East Austin. I believe they are Sabal Louisiana. They have all doubled in size in past 3 years basically

North central Filifera trios. 2/3 in each pic look great, and the others are behind a bit. Pretty much sums up Filifera recovery in Austin

March 2011 (took out second queen)

May 2018 (defoliated)

June 2019 (looking incredible)

February 2020 (looking good as well)

This is the most fronds I have ever seen on a Washingtonia. Would like to know what they were feeding this one

Dead now but impressive former Robusta in north Austin. If you look towards top of trunk you'll see the trunk constriction from 2011 freeze that took out its brother
