Floribunda Palms August 2023 Price List Update


Floribunda Palms

Recommended Posts

We hope this message finds you enjoying a happy, healthy, and fun-filled summer! We're grateful for the continued support you've shown us through your orders, which encourages us to stay around for another year or two.

We're thrilled to announce our updated August price list, which includes some wonderful additions and returns. Please note that we have an assortment of palms that may not have made it to the list for various reasons. Should you be interested in these unique and "Holy Grail" palms, we invite you to reach out to Jeff, either via email or phone, for more details.

Making a comeback to our price list, available in two sizes, is the unique Basselinia glabrata (seen above), a palm distinguished by its stacked inflorescences, formerly known as Alloschmidia.

Another interesting addition is the cutie Dypsis heterophylla fine leaf (pictured above), which has made it to our price list for the first time. Areca catechu alba (pictured below), an albino betel nut variety with a yellow crown shaft, has returned in seedling form. Known for its fast-growing nature, it's definitely worth a look.

Hydriastele rheophytica (above), a water-loving clustering palm, is another intriguing species. This plant is known for its slender stems, which dramatically bend toward the ground when they are laden with seed. Asterogyne spicatus (below), with its salmon to red new leaf, makes a fantastic understory palm and has returned to our listing.

New to our list is Areca novohibernica (as seen above), a relative of Areca guppyana, which is being offered in 4-inch pots and is notable for its prominent stilt roots. Pritchardia perlmanii (below), a splendid dwarf variety native to Kauai, also graces our updated list.

We're also excited to introduce Chrysalidocarpus mijoroanus (pictured below) to our price list for the first time. Available as a seedling, this palm resembles a plumose form of C. lastellianus and we are hoping it has potential to be more cold tolerant.

Pinanga disticha (stained glass form, pictured below), one of our most sought-after palms with its psychedelic leaf markings that persist into adulthood, has also returned.

Chrysalidocarpus hankona (below), recently described in Palms by Dransfield and Marcus, a medium grower with brilliant chalky white crown shafts, is another gem we're pleased to offer.

So many species, so little palm time, we wish you a wonderful journey of discovery and inspiration.

Here's to a beautiful summer and a thriving palm collection!

Best wishes,

Jeff & Su Marcus

You are lucky to be around these palms year round.

I'm finally able to start putting up the arrival photos almost a week later🙄.  Here are most of the 4 inch. Peroxide spray is a must, they are tucked away and that causes some fuzzy surface mold.  I'm hoping the long weekend is productive and they will all be potted as needed for the winter.  Storm was a dodged bullet for me but the rest of the area is still up in the air in terms of flooding so no leaving yet.  More photos to come the tags should all be visible for names.  Only a few with older fronds dying back so far.

NICE! Just a suggestion, but you might want to move (or copy) these photos/comments to your main post so you can track all of your plants' progress in one place. I'm so happy for you and your awesome score! Thanks so much for posting updates for the rest of us. 😎

Oops wrong thread! Some are great indoor and small ones so anyone can have something from there!

Just wanted to say again how great the plants are and how fun the experience is!  And to clarify my issues are on me and the hurricane, not from shipping.  Just make sure you don't go overboard and order as much as me when you can't just go plant them right away.  For what I have had to (unintentionally) put them through they have done amazing!  Thanks again Jeff!

Is Floribunda closing down? The "stay around for another year or two" seems to suggest that? Very sad if that's the case.

Hi PT

Let me add my two cents.  I just placed a very large order, over thousand total palms, about 100 different palms, split between two deliveries. Floribunda had 100% of everything I order. Jeff and Sulin have been awesome with all communication and updates before the order is shipping. Happy to share pics when orders arrives. 
 

I don’t think Floribunda is closing anytime. thank god!! 
 

Best Chris

Last time I placed an order a few months ago,  Jeff had mentioned it so I know it’s been thought about. There’s going to be a time when he needs to let go of selling palms and retire. When that is…..only he knows but it’s gotta be coming. Selfishly speaking for all of us, I hope it’s not too soon. The hole it will leave in the community will be massive.
