ALOCASIA REGAL SHIELDS
LUSH TROPICAL COMPANION PLANT


DARK GREEN LEAVES, SOMEWHAT PURPLE ON BACK
HARD TO LOCATE
JUST GOT IN SEVERAL MORE!


We offered these gorgeous plants about three months ago and the all sold within a few days.  So, we tried like heck to get some more and have several right now.  This is a gorgeous companion plant that gets to six feet tall, has wide well veined leaves and likes filtered light.  It's the epitome of lush and tropical appearing.  It is a suckering plant with dark green leaves, purple-green backs and prominent yellow veins on the underside.  It is native to Asia.  I anticipate they won't be around too long.

BUTIA ERIOSPATHA
THE WOOLY PINDO PALM


ONLY A FEW WAY OVERGROWN PLANTS LEFT
HARD TO FIND SPECIES


This rare Brazilian Butia is known for it's smaller size and the wooly spaths that it produces.  Leaves are green in color and prominently arching.  Mature height is estimated to be 15 feet or less.  We found that leaves are more stretching out than Butia capitata and the leaf stem spines are much less apparent.  We have a few old 5g and 2g plants available.  They can be mail ordered.  Shown here is a 2 gallon that is about 5 feet tall with a four inch bases.  The 5g and much larger.  This is a full sun species with a cold hardiness into the mid to upper teens F.

BURRETIOKENTIA KOGHIENSIS
RARE NEW CALEDONIAN PALM


WHITE CROWN SHAFT
MEDIUM HEIGHT MATURE

TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 15G PLANTS

Back in the year 2000, I was the President of the International Palm Society.  One of my goals at the time was to break the monotony of Biennial meetings always being held in the United States.  I found them to be repetitious and sort of boring.  Certainly, no one at the time would have called them exciting meetings.   With this in mind, I set up the 1998 Biennial in Thailand at Nong Nook Gardens.  That was a first.  And, to outdo that meeting, I arranged with the Palm Society of New Caledonia to have to 2000 Biennial in their country.  The palms of New Caledonia are some of the most exciting and pretties palms of the world.

This gave Jesse and I a great opportunity to see the New Caledonian palms in the wild.  About 45 minutes out of Noumea (the capitol) is Mount Koghi.  This is the home habitat for this species.  It has a thin to medium trunk, a white crown shaft and gets to about 25 feet tall.  It's very beautiful and does great in Southern California.  Most grow it in part day sun.  Cold tolerance is into the mid-twenties F. (sort of like a King Palm with tolerance of cold).  Shown here are plants that we germinated about 8 years ago.  These are very nice 15g plants.  You'll not see locally grown plants of this species available that often.  And, rarely one sale.

REGULAR PRICE 15G $225
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G $185


We only have a few of these, so don't dally.  It's a fabulous addition to any garden.  Mention this Special.

ARCHONTOPHOENIX PURPUREA
THE PURPLE CROWN SHAFT KING PALM


VERY BEAUTIFUL - GOOD GROWER
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON SIZE
SINGLES OR MULTIPLES OFFERED


The native home of Archontophoenix purpurea is the Mt. Lewis mountain range in Queensland, Australia.  This species is known for the purple color to the crown shaft.  It is found at an elevation up to 4000 feet.  Mature height is quoted to be over fifty feet, but in habitat and culture I didn't see one this tall.  For types of King Palms, this species is stated to have the thickest trunk.  I don't think I agree with this and feel A. maxima is thicker.  Most I've seen have a trunk diameter of twelve inches or somewhat more. 

Cold hardiness is about 25 degrees F.  It takes full coastal sun.  The degree of purple in the crown shaft is variable but never "lollipop" purple.  The underside of the leaves is silver and there is ramenta hairs only on this side.  On younger plants the leaf bases and leaf stem tend to have a yellow color.  I'm showing our 1g size which we're putting on a Ten Day Special.  This size is shown in the first seven photos.  You'll note on subsequent photos the purple color of the crown shaft.  We also have other sizes of this species for sale.  The next to last photo shows our 15g size.

ARCHONTOPHOENIX MAXIMA
LARGEST OF THE KING PALMS


BAND SIZE WITH TWO OR THREE PLANTS/POT
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE


By popular demand I have put this great palm on special.  This is the largest of the King Palm family.  It got its name "maxima" by the flower size, but most have found it to be an aggressive grower, have a larger trunk and get taller than the other species of King Palms.  It does have silver on the underside of the leaves.  The crown shaft is sort of a yellow, sometimes blue color.  It is a quick growing pinnate palm native to Australia.  It's rare to see them available and also hard to find good photos of this species.  I wish to than L.N. below for his picture of a mature tree.  The plants I'm putting on special are band size.  Most are multiples.  In the last row of photos, I'm showing two 15 gallon plants, but they are not on special right now.

CHAMBEYRONIA MACROCARPA
THE FLAME THROWER PALM
NEW RED EMERGING LEAF


DARK GREEN CROWN SHAFT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON SIZE

What good fortune is it that New Caledonia can claim to be the home of all Chambeyronia.  Included is this species, C. macrocarpa.  It is a slow growing, pinnate, crown shafted palm that gets to a height of about 30 feet.  It has a dark green to green-black crown shaft.  Compare this to C. hookeri above with its yellow crown shaft.  Leaves are wide, thick and leathery to the touch.  With good culture, maybe you can get three new leaves a year.  About one in twenty plants fail to throw a new red leaf - rather, it remains green.  This is just bad luck and there's no way to predict which will do this.  Shown here is are band size which are huge and on sale!  Most growers would put this size into a 5 gallon pot for a much higher cost.  We do have larger sizes available.  Coastal sun is tolerated although strong filtered light is ok for most areas.  This is a great garden palm.

REGULAR PRICE 1 GALLON $45
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON $37.50

Remember to mention this Special at the time of purchase.  Our band size is shown in the first five photos below followed by a 15g plants and a photo of a new red leaf at the nursery.

CERATOZAMIA HILDAE
DWARF FILTERED LIGHT CYCAD


MAXIMUM GARDEN HEIGHT - TYPICALLY SIX FEET
THE SIMPLE LEAF FORM SHOWN TODAY - AND ON SALE!

The first five photos below show the simple leaf form of this cycad.  Usually leaflets are matched, side by side on the leaf stem.  Some pictures show this below.  But, this form has wider leaflets with a single leaf on either side of the stem.  They are super attractive.  This species is very small with leaves rarely to four feet long and a caudex size under six inches.  The hallmark of this species is the grouping of the leaflets - like little bow ties put onto the leaf stem.  Leaf color is always green.  As for culture, I'd recommend filtered light.  It doesn't take up much room so it can fit into any garden.  It's a very "cute" species that people like.  It's also a wonderful patio plant.  Cold tolerance is into the low 20's F.

CHAMAEDOREA COSTARICANA
ONE OF THE BEST BAMBOO PALMS


EASY TO GROW - VERY PRETTY
A GREAT INTERIOR PALM! 
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

This suckering palm species is native to Mexico and Central America.  It is one of about four types of "Bamboo Palms" and is probably either the best or in a stiff competition with Chamaedorea hooperiana.  This species gets to a mature height of twelve to sixteen feet, has strong 1 inch to 1.5 inch trunks which are green in color with prominent rings, and about three to four foot long leaves.  It is an upright grower and does clump.  It doesn't run.  It takes filtered light or morning sun along the coast.  I've even heard of some growing it in full sun although I'd not recommend it.  It is a good growing species.

Cold hardiness is into the mid to lower 20's F.  Below I'm showing our five gallon size which I'm putting on special - first six photos.  I am also showing mature garden plants and one 15g size at the nursery.  This is a great palm and we do have larger sizes available and maybe a few smaller.

EXOTIC CYCAD WITH UPRIGHT LEAVES 

MEDIUM TO LARGE GREEN CYCAD FROM EASTERN AFRICA AND ADJACENT ISLANDS
EASY TO GROW - TAKES COASTAL SUN

TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SPECIES

Cycas thouarsii 
is often mentioned as "coming from Madagascar", and that it does.  But, there are also native populations in multiple eastern African countries and in the Comoros Islands.  It is a large cycad that can get trunks over thirty feet tall and twelve to eighteen inches thick.  But, in the short term of 20 years, anticipate a trunk height of six or eight feet in the ground.  Leaves are green, tend to be upright and have a length of six to nine feet.  A healthy plant can throw forty new leaves all at once.  Leaflets are paired and bright green.  Leaf stems are armed with small hooks.  Leaflets are leathery and reduced in size toward the base of the leaf.  Cold tolerance is into the low 20's F.  This species thrives in coastal Southern California and tolerates full sun right on the coast.  In fare inland areas, part day sun is preferred. 

Shown below is a very nice 15 gallon plant that is representative of this size.  We have several for sale.

RHOPALOSTYLIS SAPIDA
THE SHAVING BRUSH / FEATHER DUSTER PALM


UPRIGHT LEAVES
SWOLLEN CROWN SHAFT
TAKES SUN NEAR THE OCEAN

TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 5 GALLON PLANTS

Native stands of 
Rhopalostylis sapida are found in temperate parts of New Zealand and also on coastal areas of Chatham and South Islands.  In these localities it is found in shaded forests and in the more moist bottoms of mountainous gullies.  One does not see it at high elevation where severe cold may be seen.  Rather it's in the coastal and warmer regions.  Being a slow growing species, it is reported that it takes ten to fifteen years in habitat before one begins to see a formed trunk.  One report done by the New Zealand government reported that it took forty years to show trunk and that ten meter trees were 200 years old.  The point here is that, as a species, the Nikau Palm is slow growing in its natural habitat.  Soil in the area is good draining and rainfall is ample

This is a single trunk palm that has green, upright leaves.  The hallmarks of this plant are the upright pointing leaves and the swollen crown shaft.  Almost always, the crown shaft is prominently larger in diameter than the trunk.  The trunk has rings from old leaf attachments.  Overall height after many decades is 25 to 35 feet or, on old specimens, even more.  Trunk diameter is eight to twelve inches.  Leaves are usually eight to twelve feet long.  Growth rate is slow.  Of note, we are putting nice 5g on Ten Day Specials.

REGULAR PRICE 5G $5
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G $75

DYPSIS ALBOFARINOSA
CLUMPING MADAGASCAR PALM
WHITE CROWN SHAFTS - VERY RARE


PLANTS SHOWN HERE FROM DOMESTIC SEEDS
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1G SIZE

This clumping medium sized palm is native to Madagascar.  It has previously been called "Dypsis species white petiole".  It was formally described by Don Hodel about fifteen years ago.  It is most closely related to Dypsis baronii and known for its prominently white crown shafts.  Leaves are drooping with rather fine leaflets.  Trunks average about two inches diameter.  Plant height is a maximum of approximately fifteen feet. It can be grown in full coastal sun but should be allowed to grow up and into the sun.  So, starting in bright filtered light is best.  Exact cold hardiness is uncertain but most likely in the mid-twenties F. range.  I am putting one gallons on a Ten Day Special.  These are from domestic seeds.

KENTIOPSIS OLIVIFORMIS
SINGLE TRUNK, MEDIUM MATURE SIZE


A GREAT CROWN SHAFTED PALM FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE

I've discussed this great New Caledonian species before because it is such a good species for those of us in Southern California.  It comes from high elevation in its native habitat, is a good growing palm and can tolerate full sun easily along the coastal strip.  Its cold hardiness is down to about 23 degrees, better than the King Palm or Kentia Palm.  It has an average trunk diameter of eight to ten inches and a mature height of usually about thirty feet.  It can also be grown in part day sun or strong filtered light.  

Shown here is the size we're putting on special: our Band Size plants.  These plants are about two years old and almost ready to be stepped up.  Growth rate is good.  We have a reasonable assortment of all sizes although our larger plants are almost sold out.  
This species is highly recommended in So Cal.

ENCEPHALARTOS EUGENE-MARAISII
BLUE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD FROM THE TRANSVAAL AREA


VERY SOUGHT AFTER BY ENTHUSIASTS
MEDIUM SIZED MATURE - UPRIGHT LEAVES
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE SEEDLINGS

This species is endemic to the Waterberg range in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.  Their habitat is dry and arid.  They grow on steep rocky slops, grasslands and savanna.  It is a small to medium sized species.  Leaf length generally does not exceed a meter and stems can get about four meters high.  Of the Transvaal (previous province within South Africa north of the Vaal River) species, this is the most common.  That being said, this species is still exceptionally rare and almost extinct in the wild. 

The leaves on this species can vary from a blue/green color, to a powdery silver and in some cases be an aquamarine.  Leaflets twist almost perpendicular to the petiole, giving them a 'stacking' appearance (like blinds).  In coastal and inland areas, this species prefers to be in the full sun, but can tolerate partial sun.  Cold tolerance is about 22 degrees F.
The seedlings on special are 18 month old with two leaves.  We rarely put them on special.

LEPIDOZAMIA PEROFFSKIANA
A "USER FRIENDLY" RARE CYCAD

 

SHINY, DARK GREEN LEAVES
SLOW GROWING BUT NEEDS SOME ROOM
 
TEN DAY SPECIAL CITRUS POT SIZE

I enjoy talking about this species because it is one of my favorites.  It is a large species over time.  I say "user friendly" because this is one of the few cycad species that has absolutely no spines; none of the leaflets, none one the stems.  A leaf brushing across your face feels no more intense than brushing past a Maiden Hair Fern. We have a great selection of this species including a large collection of mature, huge plants shown in the first photo of the third row of photos. The size on sale today are the citrus pot size with caudexes of about 3 TO 4 inches.  They are 8 or more years old. Below are a few of the main characteristics of this species:

*Large species with trunks slowly getting to over ten feet
*Leaf length typically six to eight feet, sometimes bigger.
*Trunk diameter to 18 inches
*Smooth petiole with no spines
*Great for strong filtered light or full sun along the coast
*Large interesting cones
*Leaflets soft and glossy green in color
*New leaves emerge upward, older leaves lay more horizontal
*Easy to grow

I've found that even customers who say "I only like palms, not cycads" tend to love this species.

REGULAR PRICE CITRUS POT THIS SIZE $375

TEN DAY SPECIAL CITRUS POT THIS SIZE $250

As cycads are sold by caudex size (not pot size) this sale price applies to this caudex size as shown here.  This size is easy to ship within the U.S.

This attractive palm is an alternative to the much more common King Palm that we see in Southern California.  Native to Queensland and New South Whales, Australia.  Interestingly, it has become naturalized in Hawaii.  It is a tall palm, reaching heights of sixty feet.  The trunk is narrow to medium sized with a nice green crown shaft.  Leaves are green but the underside of the leaflets is silver.  It takes full coastal sun and is cold hardy to about 25 degrees.  The plants on special are both singles and multiples per pot.  The last photo below shows naturalized plants on the Big Island, HI.

REGULAR PRICE 1 GALLON $45
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $35

Remember:  Mention this Special for this price at the time of purchase.

NO WEBSITE "SHOPPING CART" -  WHY?
We don't have a shopping cart because experience has taught us that 90% of customers have questions and need personal help when ordering plants - So, we like to talk to customers.  This way customers don't order the wrong plants for their locality and it gives us the chance to guide them on culture.

RECYCLE OLD NEWSPAPER -We can use it!

We utilize old newspaper to stuff our plants before we put them in vehicles.  Newspapers also help us secure mail orders.  And, we're always running out and don't like using new paper for this purpose - wasteful.  So, we'd recycle those old newspapers that you have on hand.  Just drop them off at the nursery any day Monday through Saturday.  Thank you.

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!

Recently, on a drizzling day, sort of gray and gloomy, the following photos were taken by Alma, one of the staff.  These pictures show the unique combination of palms, cycads and succulents that we're offering.  You can see how nicely they all blend together.  We're showing these photos so you get a feel for our Nursery.

GREAT PALM TREES FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Below are pictures of about thirty five palm species that all do well in Southern California.  In the group of palms below,  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 SIZES

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.
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 POTS
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.
