ARCHONTOPHOENIX MAXIMA
LARGEST OF THE KING PALMS

NEWLY EMERGING RED LEAVES
FAIRLY TALL CROWN SHAFTED PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON 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. Mature heights can read 60 to 80 feet.  Compare this to the height of the common King Palm at about 40 to 50 feet.  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.  Of note, as you see on one photo below, the newly emerging leaf is red.  I wish to thank L.N. below for his picture of a mature tree.  The plants I'm putting on special are 5 gallon size.  Most are multiples and the one shown below is a double with two plants in the pot.  In the last row of photos, I'm showing two 15 gallon plants, but they are not on special right now.

COLORFUL THIN LEAF CROTON
ALSO CALLED "CURLY LEAF CROTON"



RED, YELLOW, ORANGE, BLACK AND GREEN!
MOST COLD HARDY VARIETY
TEN DAY SPECIAL 6 INCH POT SIZE


Crotons are a family of plants that are colorful and quite tropical.  Enthusiast instantly like them.  In tropical areas like South Florida and Hawaii, they are seen quite commonly.  There are many species in this family and a whole variety of leaf shapes, leaf sizes and plant heights.  Most like at least some sun.  The problem is that most don't do well here in Southern California.  The plant on special is what we've found to be the most cold hardy Croton.  Known for it's thin and often curled leaflets, it still has all the colors you're looking for.  I'd suggest not growing it if you definitely have harsh weather or frequent freezes.

BILLBERGIA SPECIES - A BROMELIAD
SUMMER BLOOMER WITH PINK BLOSSOMS


HUGE CLUSTERS IN POTS
TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE OLD PLANTS


Billbergia is a type of Bromeliad that grows quite well in the ground.  They are from Mexico, Central and South America and some Caribbean locations.  Most are summer bloomers with large pendent blossoms that have colorful petals.  The representative photo below is from Wikipedia.  The plants we're putting on special are five to ten year old cluster plants with about ten to twenty plants per pot.  When they blossom they'll give a huge display of long-lasting color.  Usually when you buy Bromeliads, you just get one plant.  Then you wait ten years to get a cluster like these.  They take coastal full sun and can survive a freeze.

REGULAR PRICE THESE CLUSTERS $95
TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE CLUSTERS $75


These can be shipped.  Just remember to mention this Blog Only Special to get this special price.

TRITHRINAX ACANTHACOMA
AKA TRITHIRNAX BRASILIENSIS

MEDIUM SIZE, COLD HARDY FAN PALM FOR SUN
TWO PLANTS SHOWN - ONE FROM SUN, ONE FROM SHADE
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

This single trunk tropical fan palm is noted mostly for its spiny trunk.  The spines are long, randomly directed and almost needle sized.  It is native to South America and gets to a height of about twenty feet.  It likes full sun and is cold hardy into the mid-teens F.  Unlike Trithrinax campestris, the leaflet tips on this species are not sharp nor pointed.  It is a medium rate grower.  These plants are easy to ship.  The fruits of this species are a yellow color and very attractive.

Another interesting point:  The plant on the left was grown in bright sun.  The other one in filtered light.  Note how the sun grown plant is more compact with shorter leaf stems.

REGULAR PRICE 5 GALLON $85

CHAMAEROPS HUMILUS
THE MEDITERRANEAN FAN PALM
POSSIBLE DWARF FORM OFFERED


COLD HARDY, LOVE HOT SUN

TEN DAY SPECIAL HUGE 1 GALLON PLANTS


This species is native to the Mediterranean coast of Europe and the genus extends down into Morocco where plants become more blue in color and are known as C. cerifera.  Regular Med Fans are green to blue-green in color and one of the most cold hardy palms around.  They like sun and tolerate temperatures perhaps below 15 degrees F.  Color of the leaves and height of the stems is quite variable.  There are dwarf and very tall clones found.  We’ve grown quite a few of these and these two plants drew attention.  They look different with very small, compact leaves compared to others.  And, the one gallon on the left below has four suckers already.  This tells you something is different about these plants.

Leaf stems are armed and the underside of the leaves is often silver.  This is a suckering species.  Mature heights are variable, anywhere from about eight feet up to fourteen feet.  But, the plants shown may be a clone that only gets to six or eight feet height.  We are offering this size on special.  They can be mail ordered easily.  

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


Blog only special.  You must mention it when purchasing.  I have no photos of the dwarf Med fan available presently.

RHAPIS (MULTIFIDA X HUMILIS) X R. MULTIFIDA
A SUPER RARE HYBRID BY LOUIS HOOPER


PROBABLE CROSS THAT WILL NEVER BE DONE AGAIN
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE


This may be one of the last times I can offer Rhapis hybrids by the famous Luis Hooper of La Habra, CA.  As many of you know, he is one of the few people who has ever done unusual Rhapis crosses and is presently unable to deal with the plants any more because of health issues.  The plants being offered are about five years old and an F2 hybrid.  The R. multifida x humilis was back-crossed with multifida.  This should give an attractive palm with small, thin leaflets and mature height of about ten feet.  Trunks should be tidy and about an inch thick.

Anticipate they'll be green in color, slow growing and want filtered light.  They should be cold hardy to about 22 to 24 degrees F.

REGULAR PRICE BAND SIZE $65 (SUPER RARE)
TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE BANDS $50

Remember: Mention this Blog Only Special.  I have no photos of mature plants for this cross.  This is probably the first time it's been offered for sale.

DYCKIA SPECIES
A SOUTH AMERICAN BROMELIAD


LOVES ARID, DRY LOCATIONS
GETS RED IN SUN – ONLY A FEW AVAILABLE
TEN DAY SPECIAL DYCKIA CLUSTERS

Dyckia is a genus of the Bromeliad family and is native to Brazil and central South America.  There are over 150 different species.  These plants are from high altitude, fairly rugged, like sun and heat and live in rocky, sort of undesirable, locations.  They are a terrestrial plant and not epiphytic in trees.  Thus, their roots actually grow in the soil.  This is different than almost all other Bromeliads.  The plant shown here is pretty old and has suckered.  The reason people like Dyckia is because they take dry and hot conditions and shown a prominent red color in bright sun.  I’d estimate plant ages at ten years.

REGULAR PRICE THESE DYCKIA CLUSTERS $85
TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE PLANTS $60

These are easy to ship and should be cold hardy into the low 20's or below.
  I only have a few available for sale.

CHAMAEDOREA STOLINIFERA
A SEMI-DWARF, SUCKERING SHADE PALM


PROPAGATED USUALLY ONLY BY DIVISIONS
TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 5 GALLON PLANTS FROM MORE RECENT DIVISIONS


This is a suckering dwarf to semi-dwarf simple leaf palm that is native to Mexico.  It suckers, rarely gets over six feet tall, has short petioles and has small, entire leaves as shown here.   The leaf surface is a bit wavy and sometimes a bit of a  mottled green color.  And, the new stems emerging do so in a totally different fashion.  It is called "stolinifera" because it forms new "stolons".  These are vegetative stems that emerge from the base of an older trunk.  They then shoot laterally, sometimes below the soil's surface, to reappear a short distance from the mother stem.  They look like "snakes" going over the soil surface, sometimes diving into the dirt to root.  This ability to shoot out new stolons often creates a very wide mature clump.

Stems are a quarter inch thick.  This is a filtered light species with a cold hardiness into the low 20's F.  This species is native to mountainous areas in Mexico at about 2500 feet.  It's a great garden species.  People are easily growing it in San Francisco and cooler areas.  We usually propagate vegetatively as hardly ever are seeds available.  Below are five 5 gallon plants that were divided and potted up outdoors from mother plants a year ago - outdoors.  This size is shown in the first two rows of pictures below along with a few smaller plants.  I highly recommend this species.

ENCEPHALARTOS ARENARIUS
RARE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD


MEDIUM SIZE MATURE - LIKES COASTAL SUN
EXAMPLE OF NICE PLANT AT THE NURSERY
TEN DAY SPECIAL ANY PLANT THIS SPECIES

Encephalartos arenarius is from the coastal dunes and forest close to Alexandria in the Eastern Cape.  This species is small to medium in mature size.  Leaf length can range from one to two meters (i.e. three to six feet approximately) depending on cultivar and exposure to sun.  Like many of the Encephalartos from the Eastern Cape, this species is variable in color, size and leaf type.  E. arenarius can range in color from a dull green to a powdery white color (bearing a likeness to E. horridus). 

The plant shown below is more of a green leaf variety.  It prefers a well draining soil.  Speed of growth of this cycad is good.  You could expect to have a nice garden sized plant from these old one gallons in five to seven years.  They all have six to seven leaves or more and are four years old.  These are showing their blue color already at this stage and not in sun – so you’ll get blue.  Easy to mail order.  I’m also showing a garden plant and several larger nursery plants.

BURRETIOKENTIA HAPALA
AN EXOTIC NEW CALEDONIAN PALM FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA


DROP DEAD GORGEOUS PALM SPECIES
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE

In the mid-1980's I began to grow some of the very cool palms from new Caledonia.  By 1995 I was totally into it and this led to my arranging the fantastic International Palm Society Biennial trip to New Caledonia that happened during my tenure as President in the year 2000.  I just didn't know of a better place for a bunch of palm enthusiasts to go and see some of the best palms in the world.  This species, Burretiokential hapala, is one of those palms.

It is a crown shafted palm with a rather thin trunk of about eight inches that gets to a height of approximately 25 to 30 feet.  It has an intriguing brown color to the stems and crown shaft area.  It does not have the stripes you'd see with the Burretiokentia vieilllardii.  Cold tolerance is about 25 degrees F, or perhaps a bit less.  So, it's comparable to a King Palm.  If you can grow a King, you can grow this species.  One of the keys to culture is not letting the ground it's in go dry.  This species, like Chambeyronia, responds to water.  

Shown here are the band size I'm putting on special.  I'm also showing several other sizes we often have for sale.  I'd recommend morning sun, a few hours of mid day sun, or bright filtered light.  It's a great species to grow.

CHAMAEDOREA BENZEI
RARE SINGLE TRUNK CHAMAEDOREA
LIKE 
C. RADICALIS ON STEROIDS!


NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND
5 GALLON SIZE NOW AVAILABLE

TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE

I have not shown this species that often because it's rarely available and very difficult to find.  It is native to Mexico at high elevations near Chiapas.  It is a single trunk, understory palm that has sort of a thick trunk up to 1.5 or 2 inches.  The flowers are reminiscent of Chamaedorea radicalis as they shoot high into the foliage.  Its overall appearance is also similar to the trunking radicalis but with bigger leaves, wider leaflets and a thicker trunk.  It gets up to about 10 to 15 feet.

It grows in filtered light and seems to be cold hardy into the mid-twenties at least.  We have a limited number of 5 gallons available (first five photos).   Some pots have two plants per pot - so there's a chance to set some seeds.  These can be mail ordered.  I'm also putting them on special.  Please appreciate that this is a super rare species and is seldom offered for sale.  Note that the photos below show several larger plants from the nursery.

BRAHEA ELEGANS
THE FRANCESHI PALM


MEDIUM SIZE MATURE
CAN BE GROWN IN FILTERED LIGHT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1G SIZE

You don't see this species offered that often.  It is native to the Pacific coastal mountains from Central Mexico down to Guatemala.  It has circular leaves that tend to be flat and a very glossy green on the upper side.  The underside of the leaves can be a bit silver.  Trunk diameter is a pleasant 12 inches and specimens can reach 30 feet of height after many decades.  

Regarding culture, it is not quite as cold hardy as other Brahea species like armata, clara and decumbens.  I'd suspect it may go into the upper teens F.  It is more tolerant of moisture and can be grown in filtered light if there's good drainage.  In the latter conditions the leaves are large, flat and shiny.  They sort of look like a Licuala leaf.

We just got in a limited number of nice 1g plants.  They are easy to ship.

CHAMAEDOREA MICROSPADIX
A SEMI-DWARF TYPE OF BAMBOO PALM


GET UP TO ABOUT 8 FEET - SUCKERING SPECIES
COLD HARDY INTO THE UPPER TEENS F.
TEN DAY SPECIAL HUGE BAND SIZE

This type of Bamboo Palm is known for several things.  First, it is one of the shorter true suckering and pinnate Chamaedorea.  It gets to a mature height of about 8 feet.  It is a great patio plant or can be grown inside.  It is also one of the more cold hardy types of Chamaedorea, only being beat out by C. radicalis.  Leaf color is green and sometimes there are hints of blue, a blue iridescence or even blue leaflet backs on this species.  Fruits are numerous and red in color.  Trunks are very thin. 

I'd recommend filtered light for this species although some have grown in in coastal sun.  Of note, it's one of the more cold hardy Bamboo Palms around, tolerating temperatures in the upper teens F.  The bands on sale are huge for their container and need repotting.  We have limited numbers.

RARE CYCAS SPECIES
ALL OLD FOR CONTAINER SIZE



THESE PLANTS CAN BE MAIL ORDERED
DIFFICULT TO FIND SPECIES
TEN DAY SPECIAL ALL OUR OUR RARE CYCAS SPECIES


Below you will see an assortment of six unusual Cycas species of cycads that we photographed recently.  These have all been seed grown at our nursery.  Estimated ages are eight to twelve years.  They were not repotted so most are large caudexes for their pots and didn't grow to their potential.  All need to go into the ground or be repotted.  All these plants have seen a freeze or colder at our nursery and are doing fine. 

Cycas is a genus of Old World plants native to areas stretching from China southwards through Asia, into Australia, surrounding areas and west over to Africa.  There’s even one native to Madagascar.  In general plants are larger than the Ceratozamia.  There are over one hundred species in this genus.  The common Sago Palm, Cycas revoluta, is a member of this group of cycads.  Most species have a cylindrical trunk with leaves emerging from the top.  The leaves of most are green in color although there are some difficult to grow blue species.  There’s even some species (see below) that are quite different and have branching leaves, much like the Fishtail Palms.  As a group, Cycas are fast growing and range in height from head level to way overhead.

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.

CHAMAEROPS CERIFERA
BLUE COLOR, NOT TOO TALL, COLD HARDY CLUMPING PALM


TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G SIZE


This suckering fan palm in native to Morocco in northern Africa and is often as wide as it is tall.  It doesn't get typically as tall as Chamaerops humilus and has a strong blue color when in sun.  It does sucker freely.  It loves full hot sun.  Cold tolerance is about 15 degrees F.  So, it's a great palm for folks in super cold areas.  It also grows well in the desert.  Shown here are the 15g plants I'm putting on special.  It is possible to mail order this size but our 5g size is much less expensive to ship and I'd offer a good price on them as well. 

REGULAR PRICE 15G PLANTS $175

This species of suckering Date Palm is typically felt to be native to South Africa although other populations have been reported in the Middle East, Madagascar and some tropical islands.  It is an armed palm with sharp spines on its leaf stems.  It loves full sun and heat.  Mature heights are variable.  Some plants only get to about fifteen feet.  But, I've seen plants with a mature height and many stems up to 35 feet.  Trunks average about six inches thick and are covered with fiber.  It is a dioecious palm where both sexes are needed to set fruit.  The bands on sale here are very large for their container as you can see.  These can be easily shipped.  Cold hardiness is into the upper teens F.

CYCAS PANZHIHUAENSIS
RARE GREEN CHINESE CYCAD
EXCELLENT COLD HARDINESS

MEDIUM SIZE MATURE
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15 GALLON PLANTS


This is a rare green cycad from China.  It is different than the Sago Palm - smaller and, to me, more attractive.  Leaf color is green to blue green.  It tolerates coastal sun and is cold hardy into the upper teens F.  Some feel it's one of the most cold hardy cycads in the world - even better than the Sago Palm.  Mature height should be about eight feet.  They can sucker, but much less than the Sago.  Leaflets are narrow without armor except on the tips (pointed).  

The 15 gallon plants shown have caudexes in the four to five inch range.  We also have larger and smaller plants for sale.  The special is for the size shown (as cycads are sold by caudex size, not pot size).

REGULAR PRICE THIS SIZE CAUDEX $450
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $300

SYAGRUS SANCONA
THE SOUTH AMERICAN FOXTAIL PALM

VERY PLUMOSE LEAVES
HARD TO FIND BUT NEW SEEDLINGS AVAILABLE
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON PLANTS

This is one of the pretties Syagrus you can buy.  It gets its common name from the fact that the leaves are very plumose (multi-ranked or fluffy), resembling the Foxtail Palm.  As the photographs show, the trunk is thin for the height of this palm.  And it is prominently ringed.  Mature height can be 50 feet or more.  It is native to about six countries in the northern part of South America.  It prefers full sun once acclimated and is cold tolerant down to the mid-twenties F.

We just potted up some nice three to four leaf seedlings and put them in one gallon pots.  We don't have too many.

ROYSTONEA OLERACEA
THE SOUTH AMERICAN ROYAL PALM TREE


FOLIAGE TYPICALLY MORE UPRIGHT

DAY SPECIAL 15G PLANTS


This is a single trunk, pinnate and tall crown shafted palm tree is from northern South America and the Greater Antilles Islands.  The crown shaft is green, long and tubular.  As opposed to the Cuban Royal Palm, Roystonea regia, the leaves of R. oleracea tend to not hang down below the half-way point of the sphere of the crown.  In other words, if the crown were thought of as a circular area of leaves, on this species the leaves are from 9PM to 3PM.  The leaflets of this species are also more broad than the Cuban Royal.  The trunk is gray colored.  Height is typically under fifty feet although some specimens are about a hundred feet tall. 

It's a full sun palm with a cold hardiness into the mid to upper twenties F. We have a limited number of this hard to find type of Royal Palm.

SUCKERING TROPICAL FAN PALM WITH SOME COLD TOLERANCE
MEDIUM SIZED - RATHER THIN TRUNKS

TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE


This
This species is native to a vast region stretching from Florida, Mexico and Central American, down through the Caribbean Islands into northern South America.  It has thin fibrous trunks that average about four to five inches diameter.  Height is variable.  In more tropical regions it can get up to twenty feet or more.  In Southern California it usually tops out at about fifteen feet.  With occasional pruning, it is fairly tidy and attractive.  Leaves are small and green in color.  Growth rate is medium.

One nice thing about this species is that it can tolerate temperatures below 20 degrees F.  It's not known for being super cold hardy, but can take some cold.  It also likes heat, sun and lots of water. Shown below are our 5g plants which we're putting on Ten Day Special.  The photo below by the pond was taken at Balboa Park in San Diego and the last photo shows a tree in fruit.

This is the most cold hardy species of the genus - goes down to the upper teens easily.  And, it's near impossible to find available anywhere.  Mature size is about 20 feet.  Mature, it's about twice the size of an average Arenga engleri.  The leaflets are green with very silver on the back.  The large 15g shown here is 12 years old and 8 to 10 feet tall in the pot.  I doubt you'll find this size and species elsewhere.  This size is too big to ship.

TRITHRINAX CAMPESTRIS
BLUE, SUCKERING FAN PALM
VERY COLD HARDY


LIMITED NUMBER OLD SUCKERING 5G
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

This South American suckering fan palm comes from Argentina and Uruguay.  From these locations, you might suspect it could have quite a bit of cold hardiness, and this is the case with not only this species of Trithrinax, but of the genus as a whole.  Availability of seeds of this species has been sparse to nonexistent.  And, as a young plant, it is quite slow growing.  Consequently, to get a good sized container plant can take a decade or more.  We were fortunate to offer some very nice 5g plants as shown below.  I'd estimate their age at 7 years.  They are dividing and very chunky at the base.  They are totally acclimated to full hot sun and are intensely blue.  This is a perfect selection for someone who lives in an interior area with lots of heat.

Overall height of this species is up to twenty feet.  Multiple stems are produced, but usually the number is just several.  Leaves are small, typically about two feet wide.  The segments of the leaves are pointed and sharp.  Trunks retain old leaf bases but, like
Washingtonia, eventually fall off.  This is a drought tolerant species and can take temperatures well into the 100's F. and cold tolerance is into the teens.  Of note, most specimens I've seen are blue.  The last two photos show a mature plant that is blue-green in color, probably due to the fact that it's not getting full sun.

TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $75

SYAGRUS SCHIZOPHYLLA
A MEDIUM SIZED, DIFFERENT TYPE OF SYAGRUS


VERY OLD SPECIMEN ALREADY FLOWERING!
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS ACTUAL PLANT


This is an extremely slow growing type of Syagrus.  This plant is twelve years old and already has made a flower!  It has nice vertical trunk and is probably the biggest one available in Southern CA.  It's in a 15g pot and the latest leaf is well overhead.  By the way, this is the seed bearer of the desirable "Coconut Queen'.  So, in a few years, you can create your own.  Estimated age 12 years.

LACCOSPADIX AUSTRALASICA
SUCKERING MOUNTAIN FORM


BEST GROWING SPECIES OF THE GENUS
SORT OF LIKE A SUCKERING KENTIA PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

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

PSEUDOPHOENIX SARGENTII
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.

HYOPHORBE INDICA
RARE MEDIUM SIZED PINNATE PALM


SLIGHTLY BULGING TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL ONE GALLON SIZE

This is a medium sized, crown shafted, single trunk pinnate palm from Reunion Island.  There is a green and a brown-red form of this species.  The plants on special are the green form as far as I can tell at this time.  At the mature size, they seem to look more similar than different.  

Hyophorbe indica gets to a height of about twenty five feet, has a trunk diameter of about six inches, perhaps a bit more, and along the coast demands full sun.  If you grow it in shade, it will probably succumb to rot.  In far inland areas, I would recommend a part day sun application.  Cold tolerance appears to be in the mid-twenties, perhaps slightly lower.

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 case 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

CERATOZAMIA HILDAE
DWARF FILTERED LIGHT PLANT


MAXIMUM GARDEN HEIGHT TYPICALLY SIX FEET
TEN DAY SPECIAL ANY SIZE THIS SPECIES!


The first six pictures here show an example of a really nice 15 gallon mature plant with male cones.  It is a clustered specimen with three main coning caudexes.  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.  Pictures below demonstrate this.  

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.  I'd give it filtered light.  Cold tolerance is into the low 20's F.  These cycads are super easy to ship anywhere within the U.S.  We ship plants in their containers, soil and all.

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!
