CYCAS REVOLUTA X DEBAOENSIS
INTERESTING AND FAIRLY COLD HARDY HYBRID
TAKES PART DAY SUN
NEVER TOO TALL
TEN DAY SPECIAL CITRUS POT PLANTS

With the introduction of the very rare Cycas debaoensis, it was just a matter of time before this cross was done.  It's between the Sago Palm (seed bearer with this cross) and the aforementioned debaoensis.  It is an interesting hybrid with bifurcation of the leaflets or leaf stems.  See photos below.  I'd recommend growing it in part day sun.  Cold tolerance should be into the upper teens F.

I anticipate it'll be a small to medium sized mature plants.  It's a great alternative to using the common Cycas revoluta.  Leaf color will be green and there will be some spines of the leaf stems.  Sorry, but there are no reputable photos of this hybrid in a mature size available at this time.  I'm putting our citrus pot size on special.  I'd estimate average caudex size is 2 inches.

REGULAR PRICE CITRUS POTS $185
TEN DAY SPECIAL CITRUS POT SIZE $135

CHAMAEDOREA SEIFRITZII
THE MOST CLASSIC OF THE BAMBOO PALMS
MATURE, FLOWERING SIZE 15G
FILTERED LIKE, SHORTER PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON PLANTS

This New World suckering shade palm has pinnate leaves and never gets much above 8 to 9 feet.  This is the reason it's so popular.  It is sought out as one of the most popular interior palms.  This has been the casae for about 100 years.  A good thing is that it does fit inside the home of the average house without hitting the ceiling.  Outdoors, it wants filtered light and is cold hard into the mid, perhaps lower 20's F.  The 15g on sale here are about ten or more years old and locally grown. They shouldn't get any taller and have about as many canes as a 15g pot will support.  And, they are much more sturdy and hardy than imported plants.  They've seen all of our cold weather. 

REGULAR PRICE THESE 15G $200
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $160


Just mention this Special at the time of purchase for your discount.  Although a tall box is needed, these can be shipped anywhere within the U.S.   Thanks to RPS for the last photo.

LACCOSPADIX AUSTRALASICA
SUCKERING MOUNTAIN FORM
BEST GROWING SPECIES OF THE GENUS
SORT OF LIKE A SUCKERING KENTIA PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G


When one considers the species Laccospadix australasica, he has to realize that there are different forms depending on native habitat/localities.  There are also single trunk and suckering forms.  The one for sale here is the mountain suckering form.  I feel it's the best subspecies one can purchase.   It doesn't throw the new red leaf although occasionally you see a bit of bronze in the new leaf.  This variety of the L. australasica is fairly easy to grow in our area.  The seeds for these plants today came from a local flowering tree here in Encinitas.  This variety has thinner leaves that are dull green in color, trunks about four to five inches thick and reaches a height of 12 feet.  It sort of looks like a suckering Kentia Palm.  I'd recommend morning sun, strong filtered light or perhaps several hours of daily sun.  Cold tolerance is into the twenties F.

REGULAR PRICE 5G $95
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G $70


We have extremely limited numbers of 5g but hopefully more will become available over time.  Mention this Special for your discount.

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.

VARIEGATED SHELL GINGER

5G SIZE AVAILABLE
TEN DAY SPECIAL

This is a super popular variety of ginger that blossoms in the summer.  Blossoms are white with yellow and red throats.  Mature height of these plants is six to seven feet.  The leaves are prominently variegated with lighter green and yellow.  Blossoms are long lived but not fragrant.  Blossoms occur during the summer.  I think they do best in part day sun although right on the coast folks grow them in full sun.  Cold tolerance is one of the better for ginger, probably the mid-twenties F.  The last photo shows our 15g size of the green form of this species which is not on sale right now.

ARCHONTOPHOENIX "TERACARPA"
THE BEST KING PALM EVER!

SO, WHAT IS IT?
ARE THEY EVER ON SALE?
YES, 10 DAY SPECIAL 1G SIZE

Archontophoenix teracarpa is a fictitious name given to an unknown species/type of King Palm that I have in my garden and no one can identify.  I've been collecting seeds from it for quite a few years and offering it for sale.  Everyone who gets one agrees - "It's the best King Palm ever!"  It got the name from the Latin "Large body", which it has.  After trying to identify the species over many years and with no success, we coined the name "Archontophoenix teracarpa".  The closest species to it would be A. maxima but it's not the same.  So, what are the differences that makes teracarpa more ideal?

It is faster growing
It gets taller than the regular King Palm
It tolerates full sun better
It doesn't brown tip in full sun
It has a blue crown shaft
It has a super thick trunk

REGULAR PRICE 1G $45
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1G $35

Remember:  mention this Special to get your discount when you purchase!  The first garden photo below shows how spectacular, strong and powerful this species is.

DYPSIS LUCUBENSIS
TALL, THIN TRUNKED PINNATE PALM
FLUFFY, PLUMOSE LEAVES
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

This species of palm is typically single trunk but there are suckering forms.  It is native to island of Nossi-Be off the coast of Madagascar.  It can reach heights of over thirty feet.  It has leaves arranged in three ranks - "tristichous".   Trunk diameter is about 8 inches and the crown shaft is a rusty-brown color and not elongated.  It is a difficult species to find nowadays.  I'd recommend growing it in full sun along the coast.  I'd estimate cold hardiness to be in the mid-twenties F.  We have nice 5 gallons on special.

REGULAR PRICE 5 GALLON $85
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON $65

Remember:  Mention this Special for this price when you purchase.  We only have a few of these left.

CYPHOPHOENIX NUCELE
RARE, ELEGANT, THIN TRUNK PALM
UPRIGHT LEAVES

FROM NEW CALEDONIA
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE

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 last two pictures are from the late Mardi Darian's garden in Vista, CA.  You'll notice how healthy it looks in strong filtered light.  The nursery plants shown are 5g plants on same but we also larger plants available.  I'd estimate the cold tolerance into the mid to upper twenties F.  Very limited numbers are available.  These plants can be shipped or delivered if needed. 

REGULAR PRICE 5 G SIZE $95

BRAHEA DECUMBENS
DWARF, BLUE, SUCKERING SUN PALM


TEN DAY SPECIAL 1.5 GALLON SIZE

This easy to grow Mexican fan palm hardly ever gets over five feet tall.  In the sun, it gets super blue, suckers and doesn't have a large footprint in the garden.  Surprisingly, when young, plants are green in color.  But, outdoors in the sun, I guarantee that they'll turn blue.  Leaves are small compared to other Braheas.  It is rare and, unfortunately, very slow growing.  I am showing here our 1.5 gallon plants which are about 4 years old.  They are quite old for their containers.  This species will take sun in all areas and does not like shade.  It does well in desert areas.  Cold tolerance is about 17 to 18 degrees.  We're offering both sizes on a ten day special.  And, for this slow growing species, they are oversized in their pots.  After a little acclimation, put them right into your garden!

CEROXYLON VOGELIANUM

THIN TRUNK, PLUMOSE LEAVES
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE


This tall, single trunk species of Ceroxylon comes from the Andean Mountains stretching from Venezuela through Columbia and Peru and down into Bolivia. Natively it is found in elevations up to 10,000 feet.  The trunk is very light colored, often white or a light gray.  The leaves are plumose with drooping leaflets.  It can get over fifty feet tall.  The first specimen photo below was taken reportedly in a garden in the Sunset district of San Francisco.  Planted out, we've found Ceroxylon do best growing into sun as opposed to being planted directly in sun when young.  They do like moisture and water.  I just have a handful of these for sale.  They are about two years old.

A collector in Vista, CA that has an interesting and different Dypsis in his yard that has set seeds.  The plants being offered are from this plant and in band size.  There are some photos of the mother plant below.  He says it doesn't sucker but "split" above the ground.  So, in the photo, you see two trunks.  The interesting thing about this plant is the trunk.  It is medium sized, about six or seven inches thick.  But, there is a "step off" at each growth ring.  One normally doesn't see this with Dypsis.  Leaves are keeled and about six feet long.  Overall height is twenty feet.  They are growing in sun.

PARAJUBAEA TORALLYI
SOUTH AMERICAN COCONUT

LARGE, COCONUT APPEARING PALM
LARGE SINGLE TRUNK PALM FOR FULL SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL HUGE 15 GALLON PLANTS

This rare and nearly extinct species from Bolivia in South America is a single trunk pinnate palm that gets to about forty feet height with a twelve to eighteen inches in trunk diameter.  In its natural habitat high in the Andes Mountains, it sees a fair amount of cold weather.  In domestic gardens, reports of this species tolerating temperatures into the teens have surfaced.  Seeds are huge in size, expensive and germination is sporadic.  In most areas, this species tolerates full sun.  In the desert, part sun is probably better.  Give it plenty of room to grow - it is a large tree.  Many think it resembles the Coconut Palm, thus the common name.  The 15 gallon on sale here are super large plants for their pots.  The trunk bases fill more than half of the container on many.  They stand nearly eight feet tall or more in their pots.  They are really too big for standard mail order.

REGULAR PRICE 15 GALLON $250

SMOOTH CROWN, COLORED CROWN SHAFT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE


Euterpe edulis is a fun palm to grow because it is super attractive, has a narrow trunk and a beautiful, smooth crown shaft.  I have had several in my garden.  On mine, the crown shafts were a purple-green color but it's more common to see them as a lime green.  Maximum height is about thirty feet with about a four inch thick trunk.  Leaves tend to arch down and leaf color is green.  This species likes to start in filtered light and work it's way into full sun along the coast.  It's cold hardy into the upper teens F.  Anticipate a plant life of about thirty years.  Also of note is the fact that the hearts of this palm are edible and a delicacy in many areas.

HAWAIIAN TI PLANTS
GREAT COLOR FOR THE GARDEN


PRESENTING TWO RED TI'S - WIDE AND NARROW LEAVES
TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE PLANTS


Cordyline Hawaiian Ti plants are a great way to add color to the garden.  They easily acclimate to filtered light growing conditions in our area but can be solely acclimated to coastal sun.  Most don't get much over six feet tall.  They have thin trunks and can take a freeze with some damage.  Sever cold will kill them.  Leaf color varies from pastels to reds to green and black.  We've found that the darker leaf varieties do better in our area.  Shown here are two red varieties - one with wide leaves, the other with more narrow leaves.  We just got them in and are putting both on sale.  The first four photos show the wider leaf variety - the next four photos show the narrow leaf plants.

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.

WALLICHIA DISTICHA
SINGLE TRUNK, LEAVES IN ONE PLANE


A VERY INTERESTING AND PECULIAR PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

This unusual palm that has all of its leaves in a single plane.  That is to say from the front, it is a fairly large, "Caryota-appearing" palm tree.  But, looking from the side, it is narrow and you can hardly see it.  The dictionary definition of "distichous" is:  "Arranged in two vertical rows on opposite sides of an axis: distichous leaves. "  In this case, the trunk of the palm is the axis.  

This species is native to the Himalaya Mountains in Asia, spreading from northern India across to northern Thailand.  There it grows at altitudes of up to 4000 feet.  Because of it's heritage and as you might guess, it does have some cold hardiness and can easily be grown in many areas of Southern California.  It tolerates temperatures down to about the mid to upper twenties F.  It prefers full sun.  Mature height is about 30 feet.  Usually this species is single trunk, but in the wild suckering specimens are found.  This is not to confuse it with another suckering species, Wallichia densiflora,  which is always a clustering species.  

Wallichia could be confused with Arenga and Caryota, both of which are also from the same part of the world.  All have leaflets that have jagged or toothed apical ends as shown here.  All also go through a flowering process that begins at the upper trunk and works its way down the trunk over time.  And, all have stems that die after suckering.  When there is only one stem (as with this species), the tree will die after it flowers.  Seeds of Wallichia disticha are very small as shown here.  The back sides of Wallichia and Arenga leaflets are silver whereas Caryotas are green on the back side.  This helps in identifying the genus.  Trunks of Wallichia disticha are also covered with dense brown fibers as shown here.   

We have very limited numbers of this rare species for sale.  For someone who likes different species, this one is for you.

BECCARIOPHOENIX ALFREDII
RECENTLY DESCRIBED, MEDIUM SIZED MADAGASCAR PALM


HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER
TEN DAY SPECIAL ON 5G SIZED PLANTS

This species of exotic palm is from the island of Madagascar.  It is the third of three Beccariophoenix species described from this palm-loaded country.  It is so sought after because some feel that it's the prettiest species of the three.  And, because is may possess the best cold hardiness.  I've documented other Beccariophoenix species tolerating temperatures below 25 degrees at our nursery.  So, this species may survive in areas like San Francisco, Phoenix and Houston.  It grows to a height of about thirty feet and does not have a crown shaft.  Leaves are long and minimally curved.  The crown of leaves are densely placed.  Growth rate is medium in most areas and along the coast it likes sun.  This species is rather hard to find.  We're putting our limited supplies of 5g plants on ten day special.  

REGULAR PRICE 5G THIS SPECIES $95
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $75

You must mention this Internet-only special when purchasing to get this price.  Limited supplies available.

BEAUCARNEA RECURVATA
THE PONY TAIL PALM, ELEPHANT FOOT PALM


SUPER SWOLLEN TRUNK BASE
INTERESTING PLANT FOR FULL SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL 4 INCH STARTER PLANTS

The Pony Tail or Elephant Palm is not actually a palm at all.  For some reason it received this common name and most people think it's a real palm - but it's not.  It is native to the states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz and San Luis Potosi in eastern Mexico.  Beaucarnea recurvata is known for a super swollen base, a much more narrow ascending vertical trunk and strap like green leaves of heavy substance.  The base of this species can take on very peculiar and distorted forms.  The vertical woody trunk can fork and give multiple heads of leaves.  Or, multiple stems can arise from the swollen base.  It prefers full sun and is cold hardy into the mid to lower 20's F.  Cold may damage the leaves but typically plants come back.  I've seen photos of bases so large that a small Jeep in parked on the base.

Four photos show these starter plants on sale.  I'm also showing other sizes of nursery plants we have for sale and a photo from Wikipedia of a specimen plant.  But, they do get much larger and more swollen at the base than this photo shows.

SINGLE TRUNK PALM FROM MADAGASCAR


GENTLY ARCHING LEAVES
SERIOUSLY ENDANGERED IN THE WILD

A TALL, QUICK GROWING BRAHEA


GREEN LEAVES, SORT OF WISPY
THIN TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G SIZE

Rarely do I have this hard to find palm and even more rarely do I put it on special.  It's one of the hardest of the Braheas to locate.  It can reach heights of over 80 feet and is native to Baja California, Mexico.  Trunks are thin.  Crowns of leaves are open.  Leaf color is typically green as shown here.  One of the best places to see this species is in Balboa Park, San Diego, less than a half mile from where I live.  It wants full sun, tolerates wind and dry conditions and is a good growing species.  Despite it's beauty, its a solid grower and a fine addition to any garden.

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.

On all the genera above there may be many more species within the same genus that also grow well for us here. 
I apologize if I haven't included your favorite species in this group, but this is meant to be a brief introduction and
I wanted to keep it simple.  I have utilized these species in a brief article summarizing Palms for Southern California
elsewhere at this website.

 

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.

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.

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.

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
