My place will look like that in 20 more years.....NOT  There ain't enough water in Wai`anae for anyplace to look like that.  Now if I lived on the Windward Coast maybe.  LOL

My place will eventually look like that too, about 15 years after I croak.

Peachy

I came. I saw. I purchased

Warm subtropical, with occasional frosts.

My place will never look like Bo's garden, I have to be happy with what Ive got.  Bo's skills and knowledge plus wet side of hawaii weather makes for a spectacular garden few will ever be able to grow.  Keep the pics coming, must be so much more to see!

Blew my mind the first time I saw the pics here when I was 12, still one of the GOAT palm gardens! The Clinostigma forest and mass planting of Dypsis sp. 'Orange Crush' (or whatever it's called now) are ICONIC

Wow!  Wont have that here but maybe if I built a conservatory with 50 foot ceilings I could.  The prehistoric style of palm tree feels like another planet.

The palms are indeed stunning, but how about the architectural elements like this staircase! The entire garden is incredibly well thought out, perfectly grown and pretty close to Nirvana. Kudos to Bo, Bob and Andy.

If you open the album at the link the photos are there. It's the photo of the Satranala.

They're all at the link I shared. According to the owners, they mostly defoliated during the volcanic eruption so have been making a very slow recovery.

Thank you for putting both this post and flickr album together... Incredible to see these palms' genetic potential  Had to chuckle at the Ravenea hildebrandtii height, as it's a small understory palm in CA.

I didn't see a label on the photo below... Is this a  C. sp. "orange crush" or a C. mananjarensis "mealy bug"?
I'm currently thinking it's an "orange crush" but thought I'd double-check.

Thanks - I'm great at identifying YOUNG mealy bug palms, but have only seen a few examples of the larger ones.

I envy the flawless Pelagodoxa henryana in the crack below the footbridge. Fantasy palm garden for most of us for sure.

Great photos of an inspirational garden! 

For some reason the picture that struck me the most was this one. You can really see how similar the B. madagascariensis on the left looks to the nearby coconuts!
