COPERNICIA ALBA
THE CARANDAY PALM

VERY COLD HARDY, TALL & THIN TRUNK FAN PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE


This is probably the most cold hardy of any of the Copernicia.  It is native to the South American countries of Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina.   We have available some seed grown 5 gallon plants that are about four years old.  We’re putting them on special.  It is a very tall palm (can get up to 100 feet) yet has an extremely thin trunk, usually less than 12 inches.  The upper trunk can hold on to old leaf bases, but on older specimens most of the trunk shows a clean gray appearance.  The leaves are about three feet wide, green above and blue-green to blue below.  The deeply divided leaves are about three feet wide..  Petioles are mildly armed.  Photos here show the leaf characteristics.  Like other tall, thin palms, this species can be planted in a group of several together.  It wants full sun and is cold hardy well into the lower twenties and even the upper teens F.  It can tolerate desert climates.

REGULAR PRICE 5 GALLON $95
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $65

CHAMAEDOREA GLAUCIFOLIA
SUPER SIMILAR TO CHAMAEDOREA PLUMOSA


TAKES A FAIR AMOUNT OF SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE


This species is very similar to Chamaedorea plumosa - except:  The plumosa has a more plumose leaf and takes a little more sun.  The glaucifolia leaf is a bit flatter but still is somewhat plumose in cross section.  The glaucifolia also has the silver powder on the leaf stems and crown shaft as shown here.  Otherwise, you would mistake the two.  Note that if you wipe the crown shaft with you thumb, you'll wipe off the frosty while as shown below.  Now that the "Baby Queens" have gotten so much notoriety, it's very difficult to find glaucifolia. 

This is a single trunk species but these pots have several plants per pot.  Mature height is about 14 feet.  It takes almost full sun on the coast and is quick growing. Cold hardiness is about 25 degrees F.  I apologize that I don't have any good garden pictures of this species, but the large nursery plants will give you an idea of their mature appearance.  Note that these plants on special are multiples - several plants in each pot.

DYPSIS ONILAHENSIS
SINGLE TRUNK OR SUCKERING PALM 

VERY POPULAR, EASY TO GROW
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE


This species is a suckering palm from Madagascar has single trunk or suckering varieties.  It has either flat or droopy leaves/leaflets and white to silver crown shafts.  Overall height is about twenty feet and trunk thickness is four to six inches.  It likes coastal part day sun, perhaps more, and is cold tolerant to the mid-twenties F.  Some growers in our area have been successful in growing this species in full sun.  It is quite popular among enthusiasts.  The plants we're putting on special are the 5 gallon size.  There is variability with the color of the crown shaft.  I think these plants on sale will show the classic white crown shaft when large.  These can be mail ordered.

DYPSIS PEMBANA
SINGLE TRUNK OR SUCKERING
NATIVE TO PEMBA ISLAND

TAKES FULL COASTAL SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

There are both single trunk and suckering forms of this species.  Nowadays, most of the plants available of this species are the suckering form.  Both get to a height of 25 feet, have an attractive green trunk and a light colored crown shaft.  Leaves have a graceful arch and the leaflet color is green.  It's a great alternative for the garden.  Note how the trunks are rather thin.  The two plants shown here are going to be the suckering variety.  Along our coast it will take full sun but I'd recommend filtered or morning light inland.  The plants on special are in 5g size and on sale.  They are not huge so we’re giving a good discount.  We may have both larger and smaller size.

TRITHRINAX SCHIZOPHYLLA
THE CARANDILLA PALM


BLUE-GREEN SUCKERING FAN PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G SIZE


This rare and hard to find species of South American fan palm was previously known as Trithrinax biflabellata.  But, the latter was later found to be spineless and the two were given separate species status.  It is native to Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia.  T. schizophylla is definitely a spiny palm with long needle-like spines on the trunk.  It is not quite as blue as campestris and is usually a suckering palm but sometimes is single trunk.  Mature height is six to fifteen feet.  Although the leaf is a rigid leaf, the leaflet tips are softer than the pungent T. campestris.  Leaf color is blue-green, not nearly as blue as campestris.  It is a very cold hardy species that tolerates temperatures down to at least 18 degrees F.  On sale are very old, outdoor grown 15g plants.  I think we've been growing these for about 12 to 14 years.  It likes full sun and loves heat.  It is possible to mail order this larger 15g size but it'd take a large box.

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.

HYOPHORBE INDICA
RARE MEDIUM SIZED PINNATE PALM


SLIGHTLY BULGING TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL ONE GALLON SIZE
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 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. 

REGULAR PRICE 1 GALLON $55
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $45

VEITCHIA MERRILLII HYBRID
POTENTIAL TO GROW SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE GROWN HERE


THE STORY ON HOW WE GOT THIS HYBRID
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

There is an interesting story behind the plants I'm showing you here.  About three years ago, we go some seeds from a botanical garden that were labeled as Veitchia merrillii (aka Adonidia merrillii).  This palm resembles a miniature Royal Palm, so it is a popular choice by enthusiasts who see it in tropical areas.  Rarely does it get over twenty feet tall and many people like this smaller size.  But, native to the Philippines, you might expect it'd be too tropical and cold sensitive to grow here.  Well, that is the case and I don't know of one mature tree in Southern California.  Customers call us and want it, but I always tell them it's not possible for our climate.

Three years ago we got some seeds of what was thought to be pure Veitchia merrillii.  The seeds looked to be the right size for merrillii - the anticipated small size as you see with this species.  Seeds of other Veitchia species are much larger.  Of note, here most of the other species do survive our winters.  Of the thirty seeds that germinated, about half died off quickly in our greenhouses the first winter.  We figured - that makes sense - cold sensitive.  But, to our surprise, the other half grew quite well.  As they got bigger, it was apparent that they looked nothing like a true species Veitchia merrillii we have grown in the past.  The prominent speckling and dark color to the leaf stems was not expected - merrillii is plain green usually.  And, there is a diversity of appearance of the various plants we had. 

We figure these are a hybrid of a Veitchia merrillii crossed with something else.  Most likely it's with another species of Veitchia that are more cold tolerant.  This is to our customer's benefit as this means perhaps they can grow these and end up with a smaller palm that resembles V. merrillii.  We can only offer only about a dozen plants and all have endured the past two winters.  So, maybe these plants will be a V. merrilli (type) that you can grow here!   

Our plants are now 5 gallon size as shown below.  On the leaf stem close up photo, notice the speckling.  Veitchia merrillii do not have speckles. I am also showing the seeds that made these plants.  You can see they are the size of a regular merrillii seed. In the 10th and 11th photos you’ll see pure Veitchia merrillii in gardens.  The last photo is Veitchia arecina, a possible pollen bearer for this hybrid.

ARENGA PINNATA
THE SUGAR PALM


GOOD SIZED 15G AVAILABLE
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE

As many of you know, Arengas are usually suckering palms.  But, there are several single trunk species.  Arenga pinnata is one of these.  It is felt to be native to Indonesia and is a large palm.  It is a pinnate palm with a fibrous trunk made from woven fibers.  Overall height is forty to fifty feet and the trunk gets to a diameter of two feet.  The leaves are held upright and can be over twenty feet long.  The leaflets, like all Arenga, has jagged terminal ends.  

This is a monocarpic species and will die when the plant flowers.  Other suckering Arenga has new trunks to replace dying flowering trunks.  But, since this species has only one trunk, like a Caryota it will be gone a few years after the flowers appear.  The Sugar Palm is a full sun species with cold tolerance into the mid-twenties F.  Shown here is a 15g nursery plant and photos of mature specimens.  We also have 5g for sale.  Note the woven material on the trunk.  It is very interesting to see in person.  We are putting nice 15g plants on sale.

DYPSIS LUCUBENSIS
TALL, THIN TRUNKED PINNATE PALM


FLUFFY, PLUMOSE LEAVES
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15 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 15 gallons on special.  The plant shown below is a double with two plants in the pot.

REGULAR PRICE 5 GALLON $195
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1 GALLON $160

THE MOOSEHORN FERN
PLATYCERIUM SUPERBUM


GROWS EPIPHYTICALLY
MOUNT ON WOOD OR TREE TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE AS SHOWN

Platycerum are a type of fern that we know as the "Staghorn Fern".  But, the normal type you see, P. bifurcatum, has deer antler types of leaves.  They are narrow and reach out from the attaching shield.  There's another type known as the "Moosehorn Fern", Platycerium superbum, where the leaves are entire, stretching across the width of the plant.  These leaves can get up to six feet across.  They are not easy to find.  The standard Staghorn is not difficult to locate.  Both are an epiphytic type of plant that can be mounted on a tree trunk or grown on a wooden base.  They are easy to care for but you don't want to let them go dry.  I water them by just spraying with a hose and occasionally give them some liquid fertilizer mixed into the water.  They can take a bit of sun or strong filtered light.  Cold hardiness is typically into the mid to perhaps low twenties F.  We get these in from time to time and presently have several for sale that are about a foot across as shown here.  Below I'm first showing the Moosehorn in a tree and showing the standard Staghorn in a tree in the last photo.

BRAHEA SPECIES "SUPER SILVER"
NICE 5 GALLON PLANTS


BLUE WITH THINNER TRUNK THAT B. ARMATA
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON PLANTS

Shown here is a 5 gallon plant of a Brahea species from Mexico that is presently known as "Brahea species Super Silver".   Undoubtedly someone will describe it in the near future.  Seeds have been available only twice.  These plants are from the first batch that came along.  It is a blue plant but doesn't show the blue until older.  It wants full hot sun and would be perfect for the desert.  I suspect the cold tolerance is similar to Brahea armata, about 15 degrees F.  But, compared to the later, this species trunk is much thinner and it is faster growing.  But, the blue color is just as intense.  Shown here is the 5g size.  Limited numbers.  Mature plant photo below c/o RPS.

SABAL LISA
AN UNUSUAL FORM OF SABAL PALMETTO


STIFF, RIGID & LESS DIVIDED LEAVES
COLD HARDY - FULL SUN
HARD TO FIND
TEN DAY SPECIAL ONE GALLON SEEDLINGS

In 1998 Riefer and Zona published an article on this unusual form of Sabal palmetto that was found in southwest Florida.  There are very few of these in habitat.  It is felt to be some type of genetic alteration of the typical palmetto.  Leaves are rigid, upright and less divided compared to the typical Sabal palmetto.  Indeed, it is a peculiar and different appearing fan palms.  It is a full sun palm that tolerates temperatures into the upper teens F. (Zone 7).  At this moment, I don't recall where we obtained seeds.  But, they probably came from a friend of the Nursery.  What's on special are seedlings in one gallon pots.  This palm is difficult to find on the market.  For more information, read the article - link given below.

COMMON BUT AFFORDABLE
PLANTS WITH FOOT OF TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL 10G SIZE


This is one of the most common cycads in the world - but, they are universally appreciated because they are pretty and easy to grow in most areas.  This is a green cycad that can get to medium size and does sucker at its base.  The plants I'm putting on special are big for a 10g pot and have been grown in sun or inside the greenhouse.  They are presently forming some vertical trunk.  The price, I think, is very good.  This species takes coastal sun and is cold hardy to about 17 degrees F.  They'll take full sun except for those of you in the desert.

This fan palm species is known for not looking like an arid or more desert appearing species.  This is because it's native habitat is in the more tropical southern Japanese islands and Taiwan.  It is a lush green palm.  It is slow growing and only gets to a height of about 20 feet although habitat plants can reach 40 feet.  You'll not see anything like that in most U.S. gardens.  Leaves are rather flat and the terminal part of the leaf segments will hang downwards as shown here.  Petioles with age lose their spines.  

To get a ten foot plant in our locality may take 20 years.  It can be grown in filtered light or sun.  Cold tolerance is about 17 degrees F.

CARYOTA MITIS
CLUMPING FISHTAIL PALM FOR THE GARDEN

 

OLDER 25 GALLON SPECIMEN
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS ACTUAL TREE

This is a suckering type of Fishtail Palm from Asia.  In habitat, plants can get up to twenty or twenty five feet.  In our locality they tend to be shorter.  They do sucker forming a clump of stems.  Trunk diameter is typically about four inches.  Leaves are bi-pinnate, branching.  Leaflets are as shown below. 

The plant shown here is in a 25g pot and has been growing for about 12 years or more.  It is suckering and about 12 feet tall.  Most would grow this in morning sun or strong filtered light.  With this said, some in our area grow it in full sun.  The plant shown was in 2/3 sun and picked up some burn on its upper leaf.

REGULAR PRICE THIS 25G $450
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS PLANT $350

BUTIA CAPITATA
THE PINDO OR JELLY PALM
GREEN FORM


TEN DAY SPECIAL 25 GALLON

This single trunk South American pinnate palm is very durable and cold hardy.  It loves sun and is cold hardy to about 15 degrees F.  If you've been following our Blog, you know that there is a green form and the popular blue strain.  Both are Butia capitata.  Today I'm showing you the green form.   Most would consider this to be the "standard form".

Mature heights on both are typically15 to 20 feet in this area.  Leaves arch downwards as shown.  Mature leaf color will be green to blue green.  The blue form has definite blue leaves.  The fruit of both are edible and some people make a jelly from the fruit, thus giving a reason for one of the common names for this palm.  Growth rate is slow to medium.  The 25g on sale here are about seven years old. The photos of the mature palms below were taken at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA.

PRESTOEA MONTANA
AKA PRESTOEA ACUMINATA VAR. MONTANA


SINGLE TRUNK BEAUTY - NATIVE TO PUERTO RICO
TEN DAY SPECIAL NICE 15 GALLON PLANT


Prestoea is a genus that is very closely related to another palm genus, Euterpe.  It is found in the Caribbean, Central and South America.  Essentially all Euterpe are crown shafted palms.  Many of the Prestoea are not.  There are also distinctions between the flowers of these two genera.  Also, many of the Prestoea are suckering.  But, there is one that is single trunk.  This is Prestoea montana, native to mountainous areas of Puerto Rico.  I've always known of this species as not having a crown shaft.  But, I've seen photos (including ones from native habitats) where a crown shaft is seen.  

The hallmarks of this species are it's wide and very shiny green leaves, its somewhat slender trunk and it's overall beautiful appearance.  Plant heights can reach forty feet or more.  This species should be grown in part day sun or filtered light.  It likes rich soil and ample moisture.  I'd estimate it's cold tolerance is down to about a freeze or a bit less.  It is not a beginner species but worth it if you can grow one.

Shown here is a good size 15g plant.  We have limited numbers.  If you talk about difficulty in finding species of palms, this one might be near the top of the list.  Note that this species has historically been known as "Prestoea montana" but in more recent years has been considered a variety of P. acuminata.

RHOPALOSTYLIS CHEESEMANII
MEDIUM SIZED, VERY GRACEFUL
GORGEOUS CROWN SHAFT


TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE

Of the Shaving Brush Palm family, this is the hardest one to find.  And, many think it's the prettiest and most desirable species.  Some consider it to be a variety of R. baueri.  We like to consider it a species.  Native to Raoul Island, an island well off the eastern side of New Zealand, this species has a medium sized trunk and reaches a height of twenty five feet.  The crown shaft is gorgeous but not as swollen as R. sapida.  I have some customers who report the crown shaft being a purple color.  On younger plants, the leaf stems are red colored as shown here.  Cold tolerance is the low 20's F.  It will take coastal sun or consider morning sun or strong filtered light inland.

REGULAR PRICE 5 GALLON $95
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $75

SINGLE TRUNK - MEDIUM SIZE
ALTERNATIVE TO LARGE CANARY PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G SIZE

Shown here are some 5g plants of seeds that were labeled "Phoenix loureiroi variety hanceana".  There's always been confusion on naming this particular palm.  But, there are two varieties of P. loureiroi.  The variety discussed here and shown is Phoenix loureiroi variety loueiroi and this one is synonymous with hanceana.  It is a medium height, single trunk, armed pinnate palm from various regions in Asia.  Habitat stretches from central Asia down to the Philippines.  Mature height is variable but usually under twenty feet.  The specimen shown in Balboa Park, San Diego below is 20 years old and ten feet tall.  It's a sun species with a cold tolerance to at least the low 20's F.

AGAVE VILMORINIANA
OCTOPUS AGAVE


TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G PLANTS

This species of Agave in native to northern Mexico with perhaps extension into the U.S.  It is not a large plant.  Mature height is up to four feet with a similar spread of the leaves.  The leaves are thick and fleshy and soft at the end.  There is no terminal hard point to them.  The leaves go out and then curve downward.  They are slow growing, green to blue-green in color.  Culturally, they are xerophytic with low water requirements, are somewhat tropical appearing for an Agave and like full, hot sun.  By the way, they get their common name b/c of their mature appearance (last photo) that sort of resembles an octopus.

BAMBUSA MULTIPLEX 'ALPHONSE KARR'

COLD HARDY CLUMPING BAMBOO

 


GREEN STRIPES ON GOLD CANES
MATURE HEIGHT 15 TO 30 FEET
TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G SIZE

This bamboo is one of the "clumping" types as opposed to one that has a tendency to run and spread.  It is known for its yellow trunks with vertical green stripes of varying width and form.  Mature height in the ground is 20 to 25 feet.  In a pot they do quite well and get up to 15 feet.  This is a good botanical privacy blocking species.  It can also be grown indoors.  Cold tolerance is apparently into the upper teens F.  It likes sun and water.  Shown here is our 15g size.  We only grow a few varieties of Bamboo but think this is a nice one - if you like Bamboo.  We also have nice 5 gallon available and would give a discount on them as well.

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.

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.
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 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.
