So What Caught Your Eye Today?

Billy, @Hilo Jason and I discussed the possibilities of this before. As you know, there’s another thread about these plants I have updated with mine. I think it’s a possibility they are similar. The issue is my largest one is from Josh and not sourced from FB. And I’m not 100% sure the ones we got from Ron are sourced from FB either. I’ll ask him tomorrow. 
 

Anyway, it’s one of my favorites in the garden. Trouble free, fast growing, sun tolerant and unique. What’s not to like? Hard to picture right now as the lower fronds need to be cleaned up to appreciate the ringed trunk.

Mine came from Bill Austin here on the Big Island. Right down the road from Floribunda. I’ll be curious to see if my seed germinates.

Leaf base came off of this Chrysalidocarpus Tokoravina and almost showing its first ring of trunk, size 10 shoe for scale

Hi,

had the time to stroll through the garden after some busy weeks - 

a couple things (palms "+") caught my eye...

Here we go:

cf0001.thumb.jpg.6d1a6123affb47e043a37e9e75a8cecb.jpg

C. fallaensis is flexing its muscles for the first time. When I had the honor to welcome Bo Göran @bgl over here in 2018, it was 

nothing more than a very vulnerable looking two strap seedling...

ch0001.thumb.jpg.61a24b17d4e1bea2e9a53c0c6b90a526.jpg

At the same time (today) outside behind the wall  - C. hospita starts to get into shape. Seed grown as its C. fallaensis buddy,

enjoying full sun through the day.

Lurking "around" in deep shade and wind protection - 

ln0001.thumb.jpg.8b7b0a46486586762289f708638993df.jpg

L. ramsayi (as always... - seed grown) 

A "side project" - just for the fun of it, I kept a chopped off head of a pine, put in water and then in a pot, planted it out and here 

we are...

pine0011.thumb.jpg.0b5049bec96fd39415ff9cb48df38fa9.jpg

Amazing! Looking forward to enjoy you with some delicious food or beverages... :) 

Al right, back to the topic -

cb0001.thumb.jpg.47a64471913fff4158b9ef3e4e10ce3e.jpg

Atfer having it kept in larger pots for years - I gave myself a push and put it in the ground couple months ago (only survivor of a 

probabaly 10seeds batch from rps) and it seems to enjoy its new environment. It looks strong and promising -

C. borhidiana. 

Finally an eye candy for me -

bn0001.thumb.jpg.7f16a784d23611d4062544f699b019a6.jpg

B. nicobarica lost a boot recently and shows again his amazing gloom...

 

Lars

 

 

 

Lars, really great to see the progress of your C. fallaensis! A spectacular palm for sure!

Greetings from Muscat in Oman! :)

No highjacking!

Bo-Göran,

Thank you very much!

Btw., I recently read an article about Oman - the nature seems to be very interesting.

From desert like areas to places with a humid and therefore very lush flora - I guess and hope

that you have good time there.

 

best regards

Lars

A few palms around Lisbon, Portugal...the queens were potted.  Saw numerous Washingtonia around the airport and few other Phoenix palms as well.

Queen seedling enjoying life. What caught my eye is how much bigger it is compared to just a few months ago. I collected the seeds and germinated them myself, and this is one of the two only surviving seedlings.

IMG_20221125_080743752.jpg

This seedling caught my eye again today when one of the leaves was waving at me in the wind. Comparing it to late 2022, it has grown quite a lot! Might be finding it a home in the ground soon, who knows.

I'm guessing this to be a very rare hybrid. I believe it to be a teddy, teddy triangle, I have a teddy (don't really know which one) who is about 10ft away from a tri-bear. Most of the teddy seeds that fall and germinate are very slow like most teddy bears for me, this one is a rocket and definitely has some triangle going on. Very sweet palm.

Nice purple color on this Syagrus romanzoffiana!  First time seeing this coloring on a common queen.  Might be a more cold hardy type.IMG_20240403_113856.thumb.jpg.f3632734cb89b8ed7a1c260a44ea95a5.jpg

Hi,

I posted these images two months ago...

dava001.thumb.jpg.656e670a01f646fa2a99660e891ea908.jpg

dava002.thumb.jpg.eeafbe75271b9fb36282a84044b6aa50.jpg

...when my one and only D. album var. aureum (as almost always: seed grown) pushed a new and this time promising

looking torpedo out.

Two days ago another boot came off... 

dva001.thumb.jpg.61da61c785c81d7f97ae686caa737995.jpg

It was too bright at that time but I think you get the idea.

dva003.thumb.jpg.0e6b2ceab8a623627a1fa4dbf8b47d52.jpg

This is torpedo number two within two months - I guess, we are up to something over here.

Let's see how this will turn out - 

 regards

Lars

I had bought 2 of these a long time ago, both slow but easy growers. For some reason I had them in my mind as Saribus rotundifolius but now that I google that I'm pretty sure they are not. Ideas. Heavily armed but great looking palm.

A few of these monsters in Lagos, Portugal.  I believe they are possibly Brahea armata...

Not my photos but someone uploaded yet another UK Washie at 51N latitude in Essex that I have not seen before. It has clearly taken a bit of winter damage, but that whole area of Kent and Essex seems to be a right hotspot for Washingtonia with some of the biggest specimens, especially in terms of hybrids and Filifera specifically. Although this particular specimen doesn’t even make it in to the top 20 for Essex and Kent.

Also Echium Webbii going absolutely spastic in Cornwall with prolific flowering to the point that it is almost unmatched in the world. The native specimens on La Palma in the Canary Islands certainly cannot compete with the scale of this. Perhaps it is bolstered by the 6 months of autumn and all the excessive rainfall that we have had since October!

Looking at those, the spines are really close together and much smaller, will have to go with probably not.

Love pulling an old front and exposing the beautiful crownshaft of this palm. Was sold as a "spottle" bottle x spindle cross. Anyway it's a winner.

Nice palm.  With its trunk shape I would have guessed spindle × Hyophorbe indica.  It looks like a vigorous grower based on the ring spaces too.

I totally agree, that has been my thought ever since it got some size. I'm guessing my thought as a spottle when i bought it was bottle x spindle but think it's champagne bottle x spindle.  Been a great grower and a handsome palm.

Could it be livistona saribus? I was at Marie selby botanical garden over the weekend and they had a livistona saribus there that looked a lot like your picture. I was shocked by how heavily armed it was... Thorns everywhere! And it also had the divided leaves like yours too.

Here's a couple pictures I was looking at from palmpedia, looks a lot like yours, but I am definitely not an ID pro by any means,.so take what I'm saying with a grain of salt 😂

Chelyocarpus ulei, a young one. I was surprised how similar the leaves looked to RainforestCafe’s post above except this palm is unarmed.
