JUBAEA CHILENSIS
FATTEST TRUNK OF ANY PALM
STATELY AND MAGNIFICENT SPECIES


TEN DAY SPECIAL GOOD SIZED 15G

I'm down to the last few of the large 15g that we're offering for sale on this, the Chilean Wine Palm.  These plants are approaching ten years old from seed!  As most know, they are unbearably slow to grow and getting a nice plant as shown in the first four photos seems to take forever.  Try it yourself some day from seed.  You'll know why it takes a decade to produce a nice sized Jubaea.  Interestingly enough, we ship a lot of this sized Chilean Wine Palms to people in colder states like Texas and South Carolina.  This size are not the biggest 15g we offer, but fairly old and very nice.  Typical basal trunk diameter is four to six inches on this batch.  I do have massive 15g that are 10 inches in diameter, but they cost more.  This size is an affordable size for people who want to save a lot of years of growing time.

Ultimate height can reach at least forty feet (in several decades) and trunk diameter up to four feet.  The leaf stems are unarmed.  Seeds are large and globular as shown here.  Cold hardiness in into the mid teens F.  It's a sun species, even in the desert.

REGULAR PRICE 15G AS SHOWN $275
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $225

But, mention this Special to get your discount.  Mail order, in the pot with soil, totally possible.

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
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.

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.

TEN DAY SPECIAL:  20% OFF ANY PLANT THIS SPECIES!

Shown below are this nice 15g male plant and a citrus pot at the end.  Also, I'm showing you garden specimens.  Remember to mention this Special at the time of purchase to get this discount.

SEVERAL PLANTS PER POT

TEN DAY SPECIAL LARGE 15 GALLON SIZE

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

CHAMBEYRONIA HOOKERI
THE BLONDE FLAME THROWER PALM


GORGEOUS PALM FROM NEW CALEDONIA
BLONDE CROWN SHAFT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 GALLON SIZE


The palm shown in the first two rows is a 5 gallon size of Chambeyronia hookeri with its blonde colored crown shaft.  This species is hard to find.  It is different in appearance from the dark green crown shafted form, Chambeyronia macrocarpa.  Here's some facts about this species:

•  Growth habit and care about the same as macrocarpa
•  Along the coast will tolerate full sun if you're are not too far inland
•  Crown shaft is yellow-tan colored and quite prominent
•  Cold tolerance is about 23 degrees
•  Growth rate on this species like macrocarpa is slow to medium but improves once planted in the ground.
• Trunk diameter is about 8 inches typically and overall height of mature plants is about 25 feet
•  Leaflets are shiny green, thick and sturdy, and quite wide as shown
•  Like macrocarpa, about 95% of the time throws newly emerging red leaf as shown here.  Rarely a plant will not throw new red leaves and there's no way of predicting this.  I've shown a photo to illustrate a new red leaf.
• Also makes a great interior palm inside the home

We have very limited numbers available of this species and only several in this 5 gallon size.  But, we also have some band sized plants and occasionally larger plants as shown.

REGULAR PRICE 5G $85
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G $70

Remember to mention this Special when purchasing so you get this discounted price.  Mail order this size quite easy.

PHOENIX THEOPHRASTII
PERHAPS THE MOST COLD HARDY PHOENIX


TEN DAY SPECIAL 15G SIZE

I have previously discussed this extremely cold hardy species of Phoenix.  This species is suckering (typically) but can be single trunk.  It is from the island of Crete.  It is a bristly palm with lots of spines.  It has a pronounced yellow color in its petioles.  But, for most important to people in cold areas, it is possibly the most cold hardy of all the Phoenix (Date Palm), even better than the Canary Palm.  It is somewhat smaller than Phoenix dactylifera and the leaves are green in color.  Shown here are views of 15g plants.  We presently have limited numbers of 5g and 7g for sale.  It likes sun and cold tolerance should be about 15 degrees F.  You can see that it is a medium sized palm species.  These plants are easy to ship by mail order.

RAVENEA HILDEBRANDTII
SEMI-DWARF PINNATE COMORO ISLAND PALM
VERY HARD TO FIND SPECIES
OFFERING NICE 5 GALLON SIZE


This endangered semi-dwarf palm species is from the Comoro Islands, close to Madagascar.  It has a very thin trunk. Although reports of twenty foot palms in habitat exist, in most domestic gardens don't expect anything over ten feet in a lifetime.  Trunk diameter is two to three inches.  Leaf size is three to four feet.  Most have grown this species in part day sun or filtered light.  However, I have one customer growing it well in full sun.  Cold hardiness is in the mid-twenties F.

Below I am showing our offering of the 5 gallon size which we have available.  This 5g size is easy to ship.  Or, if you live locally, drop by the nursery.  This palm does fine in Southern California and is the ultimate of pinnate leaf palms where "short" is needed.  I've shown below several shots of mature garden specimens to illustrate this species height.  Also shown in the last photo is a 25g plant which we sometimes have available.

This is a very attractive rare palm that, if given the right conditions, grows fairly rapidly.  It is also hard to find available.  Cold tolerance is about 25 to 27 degrees F.  We always have just a few of these available.  The plants on sale a nicely sized 5 gallon.  Also, I'm showing in the last row below, photos of presently unavailable 15 and 20 g plants from the nursery.

CLINOSTIGMA SAVORYANUM
THE PACIFIC BEAUTY PALM


NEWLY POTTED ONE GALLON PLANTS AVAILABLE
SECOND GENERATION FROM LOCAL TREE!

TEN DAY SPECIAL THESE PLANTS


This is a gorgeous and exotic crown shafted palm that many in our area can grow.  We have been out of them for over a year and just received seedlings from a locally and domestically grown specimen that flowered and set viable seeds.  Everyone loves this palm.  It is single trunk, crown-shafted species comes from Bonin Island near Japan.  It has been proven possible to grow this species in warmer areas of Southern California.  It is very exotic appearing with a prominent green crown shaft.  Interestingly, there are several species of Clinostigma that can be grown here.  But the savoryana is the best and easiest for us.  It can potentially get to a height of 30 feet or more and prefers a sunny location.  Cold tolerance is down to bout a freeze. 
 
Clinostigma is a very exotic pinnate palm and would be one of the more exotic and unusual of palm types possible in this area.  Shown here are one gallon pots that we potted up last year and took these photos.  They are presently larger than shown here.  The seeds came from a seeding tree in the Orange County area.  Also shown are a variety of sizes of domestic plants in Southern California.

ENCEPHALARTOS DYERIANUS
SUPER RARE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD


NATIVE TO THE TRANSVAAL DISTRICT
TEN DAY SPECIAL 1.5 GALLON SIZE

This sought after and very rare blue to blue-green South African cycad is native to the Limpopo Province in northern RSA.  There it is critically endangered with a few hundred plants remaining.  It lives on granite mountain slopes at an elevation of about 2000 feet.  It prefers full sun and is an average speed growing species.  Mature size is over ten feet in habitat in centuries.  Leaf color in full sun is typically blue.  It is considered one of the more rare of the "Transvaal" South African cycads. 

Shown here are 2 year old germinated seedlings that we have put into 1.5 gallon pots.  Most have an additional leaf since these photos were taken.  They were grown from domestic seed and pollinated by a very knowledgeable enthusiast.  Most have two leaves.  I'm showing five pictures of these plants we're putting on sale as well as several specimens we have or have had at the nursery.  Also shown are several garden specimens.

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.

PHOENIX DACTYLIFERA - MEDJOOL VARIETY
THE TRUE DATE PALM


TEN DAY SALE 5 GALLON PLANTS

This is a great cold hardy plant, being able to tolerate temperatures down into the mid-teens F.  It is hard to find this cultivar of the True Date Palm.  This is the one that gets blue and makes the best tasting dates.  The plants I'm offering on special were grown in a greenhouse so they are not showing that blue color yet.  But, they will when given direct sun and heat.  Remember, you need a male and female to get dates and the female bears the fruit. 

These are nice 5g plants about three to four feet tall.  They demand full sun, can get up to 40 feet tall and inherently can sucker.  One would remove the suckers if he wants a single trunk.

CHAMAEDOREA GLAUCIFOLIA
SUPER SIMILAR TO C. PLUMOSA

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

It's been quite a while since I've offered this Chamaedorea.  It is very similar to Chamaedorea plumosa - except:  The plumosa has a more plumose leaf and takes a little more sun.  The glaucifolia 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.  These 5g and multiples and most are larger than shown here.

This is a single trunk species.  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.

GIANT TIMBER BAMBOO
DESIRABLE VARIEGATED FORM


GREEN STRIPES ON YELLOW STEMS
TEN DAY SPECIAL


I am not a Bamboo expert in any way.  I grow some plants but do not specialize in it.  But, I've always liked looking at the trunks of the variegated Timber Bamboo.  This species is a large bamboo and can get over thirty feet tall.  The stems are yellow with green stripes.  It likes sun and needs lots of water.  Nursery plants are from divisions of existing plants.  Such is the case with this seven foot tall plant we have for sale.  I can get more of these by special order.  But, right now I'm offering them at a discount.  This type of bamboo is never inexpensive.  Also, the trunks get thick, up to at least three to four inches thick. I've heard it can be grown as a houseplant in a bright room.

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.

We only sporadically can offer this very affordable size of our four to five foot size of Dypsis lutescens.  But, I am pleased to announce that we just got in a limited number of 3 gallon that this size.  This is a suckering palm species from Madagascar that is medium sized mature, seldom over 18 feet in Southern California.  It has attractive, thin trunks with a prominent yellow color on the petioles and inner crown of stems.  It has a medium growth rate. 

Along the coast, it prefers sun or very bright filtered light.  In inland areas it cannot take full sun.  Cold tolerance is into the mid-twenties F.  We also have larger sizes available (see below).  We remind people that this palm is the most popular palm for blocking the neighbor from looking over the fence into your yard!  For this reason we also call it the "Neighbor Blocking Palm".

CHAMAEDOREA CATARACTARUM
THE CAT PALM
A SEMI-DWARF CLUSTERING PALM


SEMI-DWARF TO SIX FEET
TEN DAY SPECIAL SQUAT 15G POTS

This species of palm has been sold under the name "Cat Palm", which is an abbreviation for "cataractarum".   For Chamaedoreas and in the past, it was fairly easy to find.  Nowadays it's very difficult to find, especially with mature size as shown here.  It is a clustering palm that gets six feet tall.  It really doesn't form any trunk.  It likes water as it has a native habitat near river beds.  It is cold hardy into the mid 20's F. and I'd recommend, at most, a few hours of sun or filtered light.  It is native to the southern areas of Mexico and possibly into areas of Central America.  With less than adequate water it tends to look scrappy.  At the nursery, we offer mostly large plants, either 10 or 15 gallon size.  They typically are suckering with a near mature height.

You won't find this species available at many places in the country.  It's native to southern Thailand and surrounding areas including Indonesia.  It's a large palm.  In habitat it gets to a height of thirty to fifty feet with one foot thick trunks.  It can have huge leaves over fifteen feet long.  In other words, one leaf is taller than a whole clump of Arenga engleri.  Like all Arenga, the back sides of the leaves are silver.  I'd recommend part day sun or filtered light.  Cold tolerance is uncertain, perhaps into the mid-twenties F.

TEN DAY SPECIAL ONE GALLON SIZE

This attractive fan palm is native to the islands of Kauai and Nihau in the Hawaiian chain.  It lives at about 500 feet elevation or more in dry forests.  There, some plants are found on dry cliffs.  Maybe because of its natural habitat, it does quite well in Southern California.  Plants get up to about 25 feet height with a narrow trunk for their height.  Leaves are green with some divisions of the leaf segments.  Old leaves may form a petticoat on the trunk as shown here.  Fruit is medium-large in size, up to 3/4 of an inch.  Culturally, this species takes full sun on the coast and wants morning sun further inland.  Cold tolerance is down to 25 to 27 degrees F. 
The plants on sale are one gallon although we may have larger sizes available.

This species of Windmill Palm is always sought out by palm enthusiasts, especially those in colder areas.  This is because this species is felt to be the most cold hardy of the genus with reports of it easily tolerating temperatures into the single digits F.  This, of course, varies with the duration or cold and other conditions.  We've been out of this species for about 2 years and now can offer nice 2 gallon plants on special.  We have limited supplies, so don't dally.  It tolerates coastal sun quite well and part sun far inland.  BTW, these are very hard to find.

TRACHYCARPUS FORTUNEI
THE WINDMILL PALM
ONE OF THE MOST COLD HARDY PALMS


CHUNKY 15G ON TEN DAY SPECIAL

Trachyarpus fortunei is the most commonly available and commonly grown of the Windmill Palms.  It is of Chinese origin .  It is referred to as the Chinese Windmill Palm, the Windmill Palm, or the Chusan Palm.  Note how the term "Windmill Palm" can refer to this particular species or to the genus as a whole.   It is not uncommon to see it growing in colder areas of the United States, southern Europe, the Mediterranean and southern portions of Australia and Africa. 

Most specimens one will see are in the height range of ten to twenty feet.  However, the oldest of trees may reach forty feet height.  The actual trunk diameter is typically six to ten inches.  The leaves are typically about three feet in diameter and have variable division of the segments. Leaves are green on the upper side and below, but it is not uncommon for one can see a bit of blue discoloration to the underside of the leaf.  Distal leaf segments can flex downward toward the ground.  Shown here are two nicely size nursery plants that are in 15g size and are representative this size size at the nursery.

This palm species is a fan palm that is native to Queensland.  We've found it to be quick growing.  It'll attain a mature height of 60 feet or more.  Trunk diameter is about 12 to 18 inches.  Its leaf stems are armed as shown here.  It prefers full sun, even in desert areas.  I've read reports of it tolerating snow in Georgia.  I'd estimate cold tolerance to be at least 20 degrees F.  The 5g on Special are nice size and ready for repot or planting in the garden.  When mature, the leaflets droop downwards.  This species was previously known as "Carnavon Gorge".  Habitat photo c/o M.C. in Australia.

DIOON EDULE
A SMALLER CYCAD
SUPER COLD HARDY


TOLERATES SUN, EVEN IN DESERT
TEN DAY SPECIAL BLUE-GREEN 1G PLANTS


Dioon edule is a remarkable cycad species for multiple reasons.  First, it takes hot blazing sun and heat.  It can be grown in desert areas in full sun.  Most cycads can't do this.  Secondly, it is cold hardy - probably one of the best cycads species for cold.  It'll go into the teens F. for sure.  Finally, it never gets very big.  A five foot tall plant with a foot or two of caudex is about maximum for this species.  But, it will often cluster and form a clump of plants.  The special today is on very nice 1g plants.  Note they are not new seedlings but have some size.  And, they have a nice blue-green color.  These are simple to mail order.

BRAHEA ELEGANS
THE FRANCESHI PALM


MEDIUM SIZE MATURE
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.

COCCOTHRINAX CRINITA VARIETY BREVICRINAS
A RARE FORM OF THE OLD MAN PALM


NATIVE TO CUBA
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE

The palm species shown here is the more rare form of Coccothrinax crinita.  Both the regular C. crinita and this form are native to Cuba.  This form is said to have shorter hairs on the trunk and to be a little bit more "neat" appearing.  For anyone who has grown one of the Old Man Palms, the one thing you'll agree on is how slow they are.  The seedlings here are three to four years old.  One suffers through "blades of grass" for the first two years or more.  Finally palmate leaves appear as shown here.  This is a dwarf species, unlikely to get over ten feet.  It loves sun and heat and is cold hardy somewhere into the mid-teens F. And, by the way, those fibers/hairs covering the trunk are its hallmark.  The pictures of the mature plants below are of the regular crinita - no reliable photos are available for this variety as it is so rare.

DARK GREEN CROWN SHAFT

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 it's 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 are 1 gallon plants we're putting on sale.  We do have larger and smaller sizes available.  Coastal sun is tolerated although strong filtered light is ok for most areas.  This is a great garden palm.

Several years ago we received from one of our customers about twenty Lepidozamia peroffskyana seedlings in one gallon pots.   They came from domestic seeds from his place of business.  The business had planted an assortment of these plants.  Over the years they've grown and there proved to be both sexes in the planting.  Without any hand pollination, seeds were formed.  And, they proved to be good seeds.  And, they've grown great!  This species will take full sun right on the coast but most enthusiasts give it part day sun or strong filtered light.  It needs some horizontal room as it makes a larger cycad.  Cold tolerance is actually quite good, perhaps into the upper teens F.  Folks are growing this plant in the SF Bay Area without a problem.  Leaves are soft to the touch and without any spines.  I am showing the 1 gallon sale plants in the first two photos along with a citrus pot and boxed specimen.  Be aware that we recently got in a large collection of huge specimens of this species.

BRIGHT RED IN SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5G PLANTS

Sticks of Fire is a type of Euphorbia native to Africa and perhaps parts of the Middle East.  Generally, it doesn't get too tall but can make a large bush.  In bright sun, leaves can take on a very red color.  It survives in harsh climates and is drought resistant.  Plants shown here are in 5g pots and, in bright sun, will turn red over time.  It does exude a white, toxic sap that should not make contact with the eyes.  Leaves are tubular and narrow.  Color can be impressive.  At our late Fall Sale last month, these were so popular that we've brought them in again.  The photo with the nice color is from an unknown author.

BISMARCKIA NOBILIS
STUNNING BLUE FAN PALM FROM MADAGASCAR


LOTS OF PHOTOS OF THE SPECIES

Today I'm going to show you lots of pictures of one of my favorite palms, the desirable Bismarckia nobilis.  It is native to Madagascar.  It is a fan palm with a rather stout trunk of sixteen to about twenty-four inches in diameter.  Heights can reach over forty feet although it's unclear how tall they will grow domestically in the U.S.  Leaves are blue in color as are the leaf stems.  Leaves are broad and essentially flat.  With cold weather and on juvenile plants, leaves can take on a purple color from winter's cold. 

Bismarckia love full hot sun.  It can be grown in desert areas.  Cold tolerance is down to the low 20's F.  The pictures shown today are of assorted trees of varying heights.  I've tried to show plant detail that you'll not find easily on the Internet.  Remember that this is a dioecious species with male and female trees.  One needs both a male and female palm with cross-pollination to set viable seeds.  The seeds shown here are maturing seeds on female plants.

I hope you like this species.  It looks best (in my opinion) planted as a single specimen.  I have shown a few pictures of plants at the nursery at the bottom.

CHAMAEDOREA SEIFRIZII
THE CLASSIC BAMBOO PALM


TEN DAY SPECIAL BIG 5G

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's not my favorite suckering Chamaedorea, but 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 5g on sale here are oversize, about head height or more.

REGULAR PRICE THESE 5G $85
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE $60

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.

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.

REGULAR PRICE 25G $350
TEN DAY SPECIAL 25G $225

PHOENIX RECLINATA
THE SENEGAL DATE PALM


SUCKERING, SOMETIMES LARGER PALM
TEN DAY SPECIAL BAND SIZE


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.

FURCRAEA MACDOUGALII
UNUSUAL BLUE SUCCULENT


MEDIUM SIZED, TAKES FULL SUN
TEN DAY SPECIAL 5 & 15 GALLON SIZE
 
It is actually difficult to find this sun loving blue succulent for sale.  It is native to Mexico and felt to be the tallest Agave type of plant.  It gets to a height of typically under ten feet, has a fairly narrow trunk and fleshy, thick and peculiar shaped blue leaves.  Well grown specimens can get a bit taller.  Shown here are two sizes we are putting on special.  The first row of photos is our 15g size.  The second row is the 5g size.  This species likes hot sun and is cold hardy at least to the low 20's F.  BTW, these are second generation plants from 'bulbils" from a customer's mature and fruiting plant.  Plant ages are five to six years.  They are easy to grow but growth rate is rather slow.

CYCAS REVOLUTA
THE SAGO PALM
COMMON BUT AFFORDABLE


PLANTS WITH FOOT OF TRUNK
TEN DAY SPECIAL 7G & 10G SIZE


This is probably one of the few times that I'll present such a common cycad as the Sago Palm.  But, I do acquire them once in a while, usually with large collections.  So, I have to sell them.  The plants I'm putting on special are big for a 10g pot and have been grown in sun.  They have nearly a foot of trunk.  The price, I think, is very good.  This species takes coastal sun and is cold hardy to about 17 degrees F.  We are putting on sale some nicely sizes 7g and 10g.  They are the same price and appear as shown here.  They typically have at least a eight or more caudex.  These can be mail ordered.

REGULAR PRICE THIS CROP AND SIZE $200 - $250
TEN DAY SPECIAL THIS SIZE CROP AND SIZE $135


Please mention this special for this price.

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 and citrus pots.  However, tiny pots like 4 or 6 inch are not containers that we really utilize.   

So, don't clutter the environment by giving them to the garbage man or your local landfill.  Bring them to our nursery.  We thank you in advance!
