Minster-On-Sea in Kent, England (51N)

Minster is a small town on the north coast of Kent, located within the Thames estuary. It is about 25-30 miles east of London. I only had an hour or so there, but I tried to visit as many exotics as I could. Starting with the CIDP in the middle of the town.

The most impressive palms/exotics are the Washingtonia and it isn’t even close. The next 3 are all within 5 minutes walk of each other.

This Filibusta has been featured on here before. It is becoming a bit of a celebrity and a ‘skyduster’ there nowadays.

Tucked away in a nearby backyard is another Washingtonia, which is bigger then the house and has about 6 inflorescence / flower bracts coming off it.

Some more CIDP’s around Minster. All 3 of the biggest ones have been cut down quite recently. The two biggest were cut down sometime last month I think.

This is one of the bigger ones that must have been cut down quite recently.

If I had more time, I would have gone to see the big Washingtonia in Sheerness and the 2 decent sized CIDP’s there. I probably visited all this stuff within about 45 minutes.
