Here are pictures of some of my Brahea palms. Even though they are not at all widely grown in South Africa I’ve found them to be some of the best performers in my temperate dry inland climate garden.

Brahea Armata in Arizona. I don’t know why it’s posting sideways I even tried to rotate it and it still posts the same direction.

A long way to go before my Armata catches up with many other people’s on here.

My Brahea Moorei with twelve flower stalks.  Loves being kept moist, it came in same seed batch as Glenn’s growing in Modesto, CA, origin was Cistus Nursery, Portland, Oregon. It is very happy in filtered light.  Perry (SLO Palms) has small plants from my Big Boy, not sure if he is selling these yet.  Seed is for sale, get in touch with me

Mine just now in the early morning shade.  It's only little, been in the ground one year, but seems pretty happy.
