PSEUDOPHOENIX SAGENTII
THE CHERRY PALM


INTERESTING TRUNK - MATURE 15 FEET
EXOTIC AND RARE - BUT SLOW GROWING
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1G SIZE

This sought after and very rare pinnate palm is native the Keys in Southern Florida.  It has a tidy silver trunk with very prominent rings as shown below.  Leaves are slightly plumose and not too long.  The prominent thing about this palm is that it has a very slow rate of growth here in California.  It may be quicker in south Florida, but not here.  The 1 gallons on special here are four years old!  Expect a mature height of no more than fifteen feet.  And, in this area, this height will take forty years to achieve.  It is a full sun palm in most areas.  Cold hardiness is into the mid to upper twenties F.

LIVISTONA LANGINOSA
THE WOOLY LIVISTONA


TALL, THINNER TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 G SIZE

This single trunk fan palm is native to northeastern Australia.  It has previously been referred to as the Cape River Livistona.  Formal description was first done by John Dowe in 1998 - followed by other revisions.  It gets to heights above thirty feet with a trunk diameter of 10 to 18 inches.  In habitat it tolerates hot and arid conditions.  It is a full sun species with cold hardiness to at least the low 20's F.

CHAMAEDOREA TEPEJILOTE
SINGLE TRUNK, TALL 
SHADE-LOVING PINNATE PALM


DARK GREEN RINGED TRUNK
OFTEN GROWN AS A "MULTIPLE"
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE

This single trunk pinnate palm is native to areas extending from southern Mexico down to Columbia.  They are often grown for food as the male blossoms are cooked and eaten as a delicacy.  This species doesn't take sun here - it'll burn.  But, in shade it thrives in temperatures down to the mid-twenties F.  It is quick growing and has a rather thick, prominently ringed dark green trunk.  Flowers are quite prominent and, if you have several plants closely situated, the chances are you'll obtain fruit without even trying.  The last photo shows a flower with green fruit.  This species can also be grown inside the home as long as the air is not too hot and dry.  I personally like the looks of a collection of several plants grown together.  Over time, as they age and get overhead, there will be some "stair-stepping" of the crowns and this is quite attractive.  Cold tolerance is into the mid-twenties F.  It needs filtered light, even when tall.  We have singles and some multiples of our 5g that are on sale.

PTYCHOSPERMA LINEARE
SUCKERING PALM, THIN TRUNKS


MEDIUM MATURE HEIGHT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON SIZE

Like many Ptychosperma species, this one is also from Papa New Guinea.  It is a medium sized clustering species with trunks that are one inch thick, premorse leaflets (jagged, chopped off at ends) and green leaves.  It gets to a height of about fifteen feet.  It is quite a rare species and we seldom have this species for sale.  Available now are nice one gallon plants that I'm putting on special.  This species would be considered a filtered light palm.  Cold hardiness is uncertain but I suspect most growers in my locality can succeed with this species.  Southern California growers manage well with most Ptychosperma species.  These can be easily mail ordered.

CAVENDISH BANANA
DWARF CULTIVAR


QUITE COLD HARDY
FRUITS WITH MATURE PLANTS UNDER SIX FEET
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON PLANTS


We are not tropical fruit growers.  But, we appreciate how popular growing bananas is.  So, we're offering a banana cultivar that offers two nice qualities:  Short stature and pretty good cold hardiness.  The Cavendish Dwarf cultivar hardly ever gets above six feet tall.  We have a few 20 gallon, older plants where the top of the leaves at most get to your face.   This banana wants full sun in most areas.  Cold hardiness is at least to the low 20's F.  If cold does kill the growth above the ground, it typically comes back when weather warms.  And, yes it does produce edible bananas.  In fact, this variety of banana is often sold in organic farmer's markets.

DASYLIRION LONGISSIMUM
THE MEXICAN GRASS PLANT


MEDIUM SIZED UNUSUAL SUN PLANT
DROUGHT TOLERANT
TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 15G

This interesting drought tolerant plant is native to Mexico and extremely drought tolerant.  In gardens, I've seen a few older plants with a few feet of trunk.  But, this species can actually get a trunk that is six or eight feet tall in fifty or a hundred years.  It loves hot sun.  The crown of needle like leaves is about eight feet across.  Each leaf is about the size of a knitting needle and four to six feet long.  They come to a point but are not very dangerous except perhaps to one's eye.  The plant looks like a "Pom Pom on a Trunk".  Leaf color is blue to blue green.  Cold tolerance is into the teens F.  They like hot sun.  I'm offering a nice discount on these good sized 15g specimen plants.

SABAL "RIVERSIDE" HYBRID
AN UNKNOWN BUT INTERESTING CROSS

FIRST TIME EVER OFFERED
SHOULD BE SUN LOVING & COLD HARDY
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE

The bands I'm putting on a Ten Day Special are a hybrid of the very popular Sabal riverside.  The seed bearer was the S. riverside.  Unfortunately, I do not know what the mother was pollinated with.  In any case, it'll give a different looking fan palm.  If you know the appearance of a young Sabal riverside, you'd agree these hybrids do not share the typical appearance of this species.  I'd anticipate it being good size, sun loving with green or blue green larger leaves.  It should get at least to a height of twenty feet and take cold into the teens F.  So, try something different.  Easy to ship.  BTW, not knowing the parentage, I cannot show a mature plant.

ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST RARE CYCADS


LEAVES THAT BRANCH TO THE THIRD ORDER
NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZED NICE SEEDLINGS

In about the year 2000, this rare green Chinese cycad was introduced to the world.  It had formally and only been mentioned by unpublished communications as being part of the  "Micholitzi Complex".  It is an understory cycad that has branching leaves to the third order.  Leaves can get rather long, perhaps up to eight feet and are held upright.  It is native to southern China and northern Viet Nam.  It is endangered with very few native habitats in the wild.  cold tolerance is about to the low 20's F.  Rarely do you see it for sale but we have a very limited number of two to three leaf seedlings presently.  These can be mail ordered within the U.S.

THE BABY QUEEN PALM


SEVERAL PLANTS PER POT
LOOK BEST IN GROUPS
TEN DAY SPECIAL LARGE 15 GALLON SIZE

For anyone who's looked for this species lately, you realize it's in very short supply and essentially unavailable in larger sizes.  This is because of a several year shortage of seeds.  We are pleased to presently put nice 15 gallon on special and they are very nicely sized.  All are multiples with at least 3 plants per pot.  This species gets up to about 14 feet height with a green, ringed trunk about 1.5 inches in diameter.  The leaves are plumose or fluffy.  They are quick growing and perfect for narrow planter areas.  It will take full coastal sun.  Cold hardiness is into the mid-twenties F.  It can also be used as a houseplant in a bright area.  These plants in this size pot are too big to ship by traditional carriers.  But, we can arrange delivery.  And, we also have 1g and 5eg sizes.

ENCEPHALARTOS DYERIANUS
SUPER RARE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD


NATIVE TO THE TRANSVAAL DISTRICT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1.5 GALLON SIZE

This sought after and very rare blue to blue-green South African cycad is native to the Limpopo Province in northern RSA.  There it is critically endangered with a few hundred plants remaining.  It lives on granite mountain slopes at an elevation of about 2000 feet.  It prefers full sun and is an average speed growing species.  Mature size is over ten feet in habitat in centuries.  Leaf color in full sun is typically blue.  It is considered one of the more rare of the "Transvaal" South African cycads.  Shown here are 1 to 2 year old germinated seedlings that we have put into 1.5 gallon pots.  They were grown from domestic seed and pollinated by a very knowledgeable enthusiast.  Most have two leaves.  I'm showing five pictures of these plants we're putting on sale as well as several specimens we have or have had at the nursery.  Also shown are several garden specimens.

HOWEA BELMOREANA
THE BELMORE SENTRY PALM / CURLY PALM


THE "OTHER TYPE OF KENTIA"
CURVED LEAVES - UMBRELLA SHAPED CANOPY

TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE

This species of single trunk, "non-crown shafted" pinnate palm is native to medium elevations on Lord Howe Island.  At one time is was possible to import seeds of this desirable palm along with Hedyscepe and Lepidorrhachis.  Because of conservation laws, the island can no longer legally export seeds or seedlings.  This has created a shortage of the more rare species from this locality.

Howea belmoreana is different from the Howea forsteriana (classic Kentia Palm) as it has curved leaves and an umbrella-shaped crown.  It also might be a bit more cold hardy.  It prefers filtered light or a little sun inland and can take more sun right on the coast.  Cold tolerance is about 24 degrees F.  Growth rate, like the Kentia, is slow.  The 5g shown on special here are fairly nice.  They were potted up in early winter from over-sized one gallon.  These can be mail ordered.

PACHYPODIUM LAMEREI
THE MADAGASCAR PALM


SPINY TRUNK, MEDIUM TO SMALL SIZE
WILL PRODUCE WHITE FLOWERS
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

Although not a true palm at all, this succulent from Madagascar has very spiny trunks with un-armed green leaves at the top.  It's trunks can get up to about six inches thick and overall height is usually under ten feet. Sometimes plants will branch, even at the top, and give peculiar shapes overall.  Blossoms do appear and are white in color.  This is a popular garden plant as well as an interior species. Along our coast it demands bright sun.  Cold hardiness appears to be only to about a freeze.  We have only 5 gallon size available.  The trunks are super spiny.  They are easy to ship.  A cultural note:  water minimally during cold weather and don't put it where it gets too much rain.  The plants we have are mostly single but we do have a few triples for sale.  Most have about 18 inches of trunk.

CRYOSOPHILA STAURACANTHA


SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZED TROPICAL FAN PALM
SILVER UNDERSIDE TO THE LEAVES
MODIFIED SPINES ON TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE


This single trunk fan palm is native to Southern Mexico and parts of Central America.  It can get up to a height of 25 feet but most garden specimens are under 15 feet.  Two things are quite noteworthy:  First, the undersides of the leaves are a silver-white.  A picture below of a nursery plant shows this.  Secondly, the trunk is narrow and covered with "modified" spines.  They are not real sharp and are not true spines.  The dorsal side of the leaves is green. 

This palm likes strong filtered light and right on the coast may take part day sun.  Cold tolerance is estimated to be in the high 20's F.  Growth rate is medium.  The last photo by Tobias Spanner shows a near mature tree.  You have to have an overhead crown of leaves to really see the silver color. 
The 5 gallon on special are shown in the first five photos.  Also shown are a few 15 gallon at the nursery.

CYCAS BIFIDA


OLDER 15 GALLON PLANT AVAILABLE
DIVIDED LEAFLETS
SUPER RARE CHINESE CYCAD
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS 15 GALLON PLANT

I am showing here a cycad that is native to China and very rare and hard to find.  It is known for its divided leaflets.  Off the leaf stem you typically see two leaflets, sometimes more.  Leaves go straight up in the air and are green in color.  This is a cold hardy species that likes filtered light.  Leaf length is typically about six feet, sometimes more in the garden.  

Cold tolerance is down into the lower 20's F.  The plant shown here is about twelve years old in a 15g pot.  We recently decided to put it into this 15g pot to promote leaf size.  It'd be a bit difficult to ship as it would require a tall box.  But, it is possible.  Caudex size is about 4 inches.

Shown here is a gorgeous example of one of the more beautiful of the New Caledonian palms.  
Cyphophoenix nucele is from Lifou Island, gets to a height of twenty-five to thirty feet and takes strong filtered light or part day sun in most coastal areas.  It has a thin trunk with lots of silver color.  Leaves tend to but upright as opposed to C. elegans where the leaves are more arched.  The first garden photo was taken in Vista, CA.  You'll notice how healthy it looks in strong filtered light.  I am also showing a few 15g available at the nursery.

The plants shown here on special are the 5g size.  We may also have other sizes available.  I'd estimate the cold tolerance into the mid to upper twenties F.  Very limited numbers are available.  This plant can be shipped or delivered if needed.  They have been grown from seed and are about 7 years old.

CONES AT A SMALL SIZE - NEVER OVER 3 TO FOUR FEET TALL

This is  small Mexican cycad with stems typically under one foot tall in size and leaves green in color and up to three feet long, sometimes shorter.  It usually holds about five or so leaves, sometimes more.  It is a variable species and leaflets can be lanceolate or wedge shaped.  Leaflets are quite thin in texture and have soft spines on the margins.  Overall, this species has a "fern-like" appearance and would not be considered spiny.  The names "vasquezii" replaced the more commonly known name of "fischeri" in the past fifteen years or so. 

The two plants shown here in the first two rows below are eight to ten years old.  One is a female in cone (illustrated).  I am also showing (last row) two super robust garden specimens.

We are fortunate here in Southern California because there are quite a few striking, beautiful flowering tropical trees that we can grow.  Included in this group is the African Tulip Tree with its clusters of large blossoms.  Over 99% of the trees you'll see have the orange or red-orange blossoms.  There is also a rare yellow blossoming form (last photo).  In our area, this makes a medium sized tree as shown below.  It blooms in summer but sometimes longer.  It wants full sun.  Cold hardiness is estimated to be in the mid-twenties F.  The garden photos shown were taken a few days ago just a few blocks from the nursery.

ZAMIA FURFURACEA
THE CARDBOARD CYCAD
COMPACT PLANT WITH NO SPINES


TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 2&3 G PLANTS


This popular dwarf cycad is from Mexico and rarely gets over four feet tall.  Plants do cluster and form low profile clumps.  Stems can get typically to about 12 inches although taller stems are seen in the wild.  Leaves are almost always under 36 inches long.  Leaflets are wide, short and have no spines or armor.  This is a very user friendly plant.  It tolerates full sun along the coast and needs filtered light in the desert.  Cold hardiness is into the low 20's F, perhaps a bit lower.  

We're offering here 3 gallon plants.  They are nice plants for starting in the garden.  We do have larger plants that are not on sale right now.  But, this size can easily be shipped right in their pots.

REGULAR PRICE THESE 3G PLANTS $85
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $55

ASPERAGUS FERN MYERI
ASPARAGUS DENSIFLORUS "MEYERS"

THE FOXTAIL FERN


CLUMPER - NOT RUNNER!
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE 

This evergreen fern is native to South Africa and only gets about one to two feet tall and three to four feet wide.  It doesn't run or take over the garden - it stays as a smaller clump.  It has tight, fluffy green leaves as shown here.  When I planted out my garden 40 years ago, I didn't know the difference.  I planted Asparagus Fern sprengeri.  What a mistake!  It takes over.  But, the one shown here doesn't run or monopolize an area.  It remains a nice little clump.  It's really cute, cold hardy to 20 degrees F. and easy to grow.  It likes filtered light or sun along the coast and wants average water.  The last photo taken by GCIII.  

REGULAR PRICE 5G $45
TEN DAY SPECIAL $35

RECYCLE YOUR PLASTIC CONTAINERS
NURSERY CREDIT FOR USED PLASTIC POTS



I like to remind plant enthusiasts to recycle their plastic containers.  We will take them and give you a credit toward any purchase at the nursery.  Or, if you just don't know what to do with them and are conservative minded, drop them off at our nursery location.  We'll put them to good use.  We've been doing this for decades and think it's the right thing to do for the environment.  We are especially looking for larger pots, 15g and bigger.  We also really appreciate 7g pots and citrus pots. 

So, don't give them to the garbage man for your local landfill.  Bring them to our nursery.  We thank you in advance!

COLD HARDY PALM TREES


A Quick Look at Some Species

ALLAGOPTERA ARENARIA
THE SEASHORE PALM


CLUSTERING, DWARF PALM

This pinnate palm rarely gets over six feet tall, is native to coastal Brazil and has fluffy leaves (plumose).  It's a sun species with a cold hardiness into the upper teens F.

Allagoptera arenaria  Allagoptera arenaria 

ARENGA ENGLERI
THE DWARF SUGAR PALM


SUCKERING, NOT TOO TALL

This suckering Asian species doesn't get over about ten feet tall and has silver color to the back of the leaflets.  The leaflets have chopped ends.  It'll take coastal sun and part day sun inland.  Cold tolerance about 18 degrees F.  
Arenga engleri Arenga engleri 

BLUE BUTIA CAPITATA
THE BLUE PINDO PALM


MEDIUM HEIGHT - YES, BLUE COLOR!

This variety of the South American Pindo Palm is super color because of its unusual blue color.  It gets to a height of about fifteen feet in three decades and is single trunk.  It loves full sun and is cold hardy to 15 degrees F.
Blue Butia capitata Blue Butia capitata Paul Craft

BRAHEA CLARA
BLUE SINGLE TRUNK MEXICAN PALM


SUPER COLD HARDY

This palm is quite similar to the more common Brahea armata.  It loves sun, takes cold to 15 degrees and is blue in color.  It gets to a height of no more than 20 feet.  Compared to the common Mexican Blue Fan Palm, it has longer petioles and is faster growing.  Another curious difference we've discovered is the stem armor.  Rather than simple, uniform curved spines, the armor is more like a bad set of shark's teeth as shown here.
Brahea clara Brahea clara 

BRAHEA DECUMBENS
BLUE, DWARF AND SUCKERING


EXCELLENT COLD HARDY SMALLER PALM

This suckering species of fan palm develops a blue color with age and sun.  Shown is a 5g.  We never can keep them in stock to get them to 15g.  They love hot sun, get to a height of no more than six feet and sucker.  this is an ideal palm where views are a concern.  They are very slow growing.
 
Brahea decumbens Brahea decumbens 

BUTIA X SYAGRUS
THE MULE PALM


HYBRID THAT LOOKS LIKE NEITHER PARENT

This surprisingly very cold hardy palm is being grown in areas that routinely see bad weather.  When Queen Palms die in Tucson, AZ, this one survives.  It gets to 25 feet and loves hot sun.  Some say that, when mature, they look a little bit like a Coconut.  It's also a very good growing hybrid with lots of vigor.  It likes sun and is cold hardy to about 16 or 17 degrees.
Butia x Syagrus Mule Palm  Mule Palm by Mark Heath 

COPERNICIA ALBA
TALL THIN TRUNK


SINGLE STEM FAN PALM


Copernicia is a rare genus of fan palms mostly native to Caribbean Islands such as Cuba.  This species has a thin trunk and gets over 40 feet tall.  For an exotic genus, it's surprisingly cold hardy perhaps into the upper teens F.  It loves sun and heat.
Copernicia alba Copernicia alba 

JUBAEA CHILENSIS
CHILEAN WINE PALM


FATTEST TRUNK OF ANY PALM

This thick trunked pinnate palm is slow growing but manages to get a trunk fatter than any other palm.  Native to Chile, it can reach a height of 40 feet and trunk diameter of 4 feet.  It loves hot sun and is cold hardy to 16 degrees.  The 15g plant shown here is 10 years old.  This is why this species is more costly than other palms.  The trunk is also smooth as shown here with no attached leaf bases.
Jubaea chilensis Jubaea chilensis 

LIVISTONA CHINENSIS
THE CHINESE FAN PALM


SINGLE TRUNK, MEDIUM SIZE

This Asian species never really gets to a height much above 25 feet.  It's so slow growing that anything over ten feet seems to take an eternity.  It has a twelve inch thick trunk and flat green leaves.  In most areas it takes full sun but also tolerates filtered light.  Cold hardiness is about 18 degrees F.
lIVISTONA CHINENSIS lIVISTONA CHINENSIS 

LIVISTONA DECIPIENS
AKA LIVISTONA DECORA


MEDIUM TO TALL HEIGHT, THIN TRUNK

This Australian fan palm can get over 40 feet tall, has a thin trunk and droopy leaflets.   Because of the latter fact it's known as the Ribbon Palm.  Leaflets hang toward the ground.  It likes full sun and is cold hardy into the upper teens F.  It's quite handsome.
Livistona decipiens decora Livistona decipiens 

PHOENIX RECLINATA
THE SENEGAL DATE PALM


CLUMPING SPECIES MEDIUM SIZE

This is a type of Date Palm that clusters.  It gets its name from the fact that trunks recline (lean) with age and height.  It has a variable height.  But, you can count on at least 15 feet.  Some clumps get taller.  It loves sun and is cold hardy into the upper teens F.
Phoenix reclinata Phoenix reclinata 

PHOENIX THEOPHRASTI
THE CRETAN DATE PALM


BUSHY AND NOT TOO TALL

This Date Palm is native to the island of Crete, southern Greece and some nearby islands.  It is a suckering palm and not quite as tall as the Phoenix dactylifera.  Its dates are not edible.  Leaf color is typically lime green.  Height can get up to thirty feet.  Leaves are quite plumose.  Cold tolerance is about 17 degrees or lower and it loves full and hot sun.  

Phoenix theophrasti  Phoenix theophrasti 

SABAL CAUSIARUM
TALL, THICK TRUNK FAN PALM


THICK CONCRETE LIKE TRUNKS

This Caribbean fan palm can get rather tall, up to fifty feet.  Its remarkable characteristic are the thick, concrete colored and appearing trunks.  They are really impressive and get up to two feet thick.  Leaf color is blue green.  This palm loves sun and is cold hardy into the mid to upper teens F.
Sabal causiarum Sabal causiarum 

SABAL MINOR
THE SMALLEST SABAL


DWARF PALM - SIX FEET TALL

This fan palm is native to the southeastern part of the U.S.  It rarely gets over six feet tall.  It puts out blossoms that are taller than the leaves, producing many small black seeds.  Leaves are sort of large compared to its dwarf height.  It can take sun or shade and is cold hardy to 15 degrees.  
Sabal minor Sabal minor 

TRACHYCARPUS WAGNERIANUS
SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE


SUPER COLD HARDY
SMALL, CUTE LEAVES

This Asian species of Windmill Palm is quite difficult to find.  That's because it's very slow growing.  The 15g plant shown here is about 8 years old.  They typically don't get tall.  In a few decades, a ten foot palm could be expected.  They love full sun and are cold hardy to 15 degrees F.  Leaves are quite small and flat as shown here.
 
Trachycarpus wagnerianus Trachycarpus wagnerianus

SYAGRUS SCHIZOPHYLLA X ROMANZOFFIANA
THE COCONUT QUEEN


BEAUTIFUL HYBRID PALM YET COLD HARDY

We don't know as of yet the cold hardiness of this very handsome hybrid palm developed in Thailand.  It's quite a new thing.  It is prettier than both parents.  Anticipated height is 30 feet, so it's shorter than a standard Queen Palm.  It likes full sun and appears to be cold hardy down to about 20 degrees F.
Syagrus schizophylla x Queen palm Syagrus schizophylla x Queen palm by JI


TRITHRINAX ACANTHICOMA
AKA TRITHRINAS BRASILIENSIS


MEDIUM HEIGHT, SPINEY TRUNK

This South American, single trunk fan palm is unlike some of its suckering kin below.  This plant gets to a height of about 20 feet and has a random pattern of long spines protruding from the trunk.  Leaves are green, medium sized.  It likes sun and is cold hardy well into the upper teens F.  The trunk is indeed different - liked by some, hated by others.
Trithrinax acanthicoma Trithrinax acanthicoma

TRITHRINAX CAMPESTRIS
SUCKERING BLUE FAN PALM


MEDIUM HEIGHT

This South American species is nothing like T. acanthicoma above.  It suckers, has a prominent blue color and has sharp points on the end of its leaf segments.  But, it is attractive and cold hardy to about 17 degrees F.  Expect a mature height of ten to twenty feet.

VERY USEFUL INFORMATION FOR THE READER

 

GREAT PALM TREES FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

 

Below are pictures of about thirty five palm species that all do well in Southern California.  In this group, I left off the most common species that, it seems, everyone knows about.  So, there are no Queen Palms and Mexican Fan Palms below.  But, this group includes species that may be a bit unusual and more interesting.  This is not a complete list.  For instance, within any given genus, there may be dozens other species that do well here.  If I showed every species that you can grow, it would be too overwhelming.  So, I've kept it simple and show representative pictures.  I think, for a starting point, this will suffice. 

I have chosen to show mature plants in gardens.  I tried to use mostly pictures from gardens in Southern California to show examples.  Some are from elsewhere.  This provides a quick view of species that you may want to try.  Some are for sun, others for shade.  Some are more difficult to grow than others.  I'm not commenting on each species presently.  But, throughout my Blog, there are comments on almost all of these.  If you don't live here in Southern California, realize that many of these species may live in your area as well.   

I hope you enjoy this.  We, of course, have most or all of these palms for sale at the nursery in an assortment of sizes.  And, for your enthusiasts, we probably have several hundred other cool species for you to try.

I wanted to keep it simple.  I have utilized these species in a brief article summarizing Palms for Southern California

PLANT CONTAINER SIZE


For growers here on the West Coast, there are black plastic containers that most of us use on our plants.  Surprisingly, there are differences between the pots used on the West Coast and East Coast of the U.S.  Here we refer to most containers by "gallon size"  On the East Coast pots are referred to by "diameter in inches".  So, back East you might find a plant in a "14 inch pot".  Here is might be called a "15 gallon pot".  If you visit our price and availability catalog, plants are shown by their pot size.  I'm hoping that this Blog post this morning will help clarify what individual pots look like.

 

CONTAINER SIZE PHOTO EMPTY CONTAINER PHOTO OF PLANTS IN
THIS CONTAINER
BAND SIZE CONTAINER

This pot is 3 x 3 x 9 inches, square in shape.  It is used for seedling plants.  For most growers, it has replaced the one gallon pot.  It is a bit deeper and easier to place in carrying trays.  It also conserves space on benches because these can be placed close together.  You can get a pretty nice plant in a band container, sometimes up to 30 inches tall.
band container chamaedorea in band
ONE GALLON POT

This is a very common pot used, especially by flower growers and those producing small shrubs.  It's a typical first step after germinating a seedling.  We prefer using the band containers above as they conserve table and bench space more efficiently and are deeper.  Diameter of this pot is six inches but it's only about seven inches deep.
one gallon pot plants in 1g pots
     
TWO GALLON POT

This pot is 7 to 8 inches wide and about 8 inches deep.  It is a nice size to move a band plant into.  But, it is not particularly deep, so you have to make sure the roots fit into the container. This pot will produce an average plant that is about 2 feet tall. We grow a lot of palms in these pots.
2g pot empty plant in 2g oot
FIVE GALLON POT

This pot is 10 inches wide and about 10 inches deep.  It produces a plant that is one of the most common sized palms that we sell.  It is popular because it's not too heavy to lift and plants are typically three to five feet tall, depending on the species. 
5 gallon pot plants in 5g pots
SEVEN GALLON POT

We really like this container because it produces a good sized plant but isn't as heavy to carry as a 15g.  But, for some manufacturing reason, this pot costs twice as much as a 15g.  Therefore, most growers aren't buying this sized pot very much nowadays.  It is 12 inches wide, and about 12 inches deep.
7 gallon pot palm in 7g pot
FIFTEEN GALLON POT

This is the most popular sized purchased by people who want a landscape or near-landscape ready size of plant.  This container typically supports a palm from four to eight feet size.  Weight of this size of container with soil and plant is usually sixty to ninety pounds.  It's size is 15 to 16 inches wide and 16 inches deep.  Note how this size pot usually has a nice carrying lip at the top of the pot.  
15g pot plant in 15g pot
TWENTY/TWENTY-FIVE GALLON POT

This is the next size up from a 15g.  These pots are typically about 18 to 20 inches wide and 16 to 18 inches deep.  They weight anywhere from 125 to 150 pounds with their soil.  They can produce a plant larger than the 15g, typically 8 to 10 feet. They usually have a flat lip on the top as shown. The pot shown here is actually a 25g pot.  20 g are a bit smaller.
25 g pot plant in 25g pot
24 INCH BOX CONTAINER

This box is 24 inches wide, square in shape and about 22 to 24 inches deep.  The weight of this container depends on the mix, but is anywhere from 175 to 300 pounds (this heavier weight is if one is using a very heavy soil).  It takes two men to lift one of these.  We prefer plastic boxes as shown here, but they are much more expensive than wooden box.  They last a very long time.  We usually don't grow larger sizes that this box because people cannot lift them without special equipment.  But, through associates, we have them available if needed.

ALL POT SIZES IN A ROW

This pot shows all the sizes lined up in a row.  In order, left to right are:

band size
one gallon
two gallon
five gallon
seven gallon
fifteen gallon
25 gallon
24 inch box

There are a few more pots that we use and I haven't discussed here.  These include:

Citrus pots:  These are 8 x 8 x 14 inches, a tall pot for the diameter and good for cycads
Deep bands:  These bands are about twice the size of a normal band
Thirty gallon pots:  These are a step up from the 25 gallon size and pretty heavy
Thirty inch boxes:  These are very heavy, hard to lift, so we rarely use them
