ADONIDIA - VEITCHIA MERRILLII HYBRID
POTENTIAL TO GROW SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE GROWN HERE
VERY EXCITING – MAY BEONE OF THE FEW OFFERINGS THIS CROSS IN THE COUNTRY

There is an interesting story behind the plants I'm showing you here.  About five to six years ago, we got some seeds from a botanical garden that were labeled as Veitchia merrillii (aka Adonidia merrillii).  The seeds we got were thought to be pure Veitchia merrillii.  The seeds germinated but about half of the plants produced didn’t appear to be pure merrillii.   It ends up that these different plants are a hybrid of a Veitchia merrillii crossed with something else.  And, they were showing much better cold tolerance. 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.  These should tolerate full sun.  Cold hardiness is unknown but should be below a freeze.  We only have a few left.  I have no garden photo of this hybrid mature as no one has ever done it before as far as I know.  If we were to guess, this is a cross with Veitchia arecina as they were the closest palm of the same genus nearby.

ALLAGOPTERA ARENARIA
THE SEASHORE OR BEACH PALM
FULL SUN, COLD HARDY, DWARF



The nursery plants shown here are nice one gallon size.  They are about three years old.  This species is native to Brazil and lives near the ocean, often on sandy dunes near beaches.  In general, it is very slow growing.  Mature height height is about six feet.  The leaves are plumose and fluffy.  It is a single trunk species although it has the appearance of being a suckering species.  It loves sun and heat.  If you need a small palm for full sun that you can see over, this is a great species for you.  These 1g are easy to ship in their containers with soil.

ARCHONTOPHOENIX "TERACARPA"

THE BEST KING PALM EVER!
WHAT IS IT?

This is a type of King Palm that comes from a large specimen in Phil's personal garden.  We named it "teracarpa" - meaning "big body".  No one has been able to identify it.  It has a much thicker trunk, gets taller than the normal King Palm, is a more vigorous grower and does not brown tip in sun.  In Phil's garden it towers over regular Kings nearby and is much greener and prettier.  There's a hint of silver on the back of the leaves and seeds are larger than normal King Palm seeds.  All who have bought it say it's one of the best palms in their garden.  It does not brown tip in the sun and is more resistant to wind.  Cold tolerant to about 25 degrees F. by estimation.

ARENGA MICRANTHA 
LARGE SUCKERING PINNATE PALM FROM INDIA
EXTREMELY COLD HARDY – GREEN LEAVES – SILVER BACKS
IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND


Shown below is an impossible to find suckering palm from northern India, Tibet and surrounding areas.  Quite remarkably, its native habitat is at elevations of 5000 to 7500 feet.  As you'd suspect, it tolerates temperatures way below freezing, probably into the upper teens F.  I don't really know for sure as of yet.  But, it's felt to be the most cold hardy of the genus Arenga.  It's not a medium sized Arenga.  It can get up to 20 feet with trunks about 8 inches (mature) in diameter.  Like other species of the genus, the trunks are hairy and a bit shaggy.  Leaves are large and silver colored on their underside.  It is a part day sun or filtered light species.  We only have a couple of 15g which are going on Sale.  They are over ten years old.  Since their original seed offering, no seeds have been available since.  The garden photo is by Rich Norm from PalmTalk.

BISMARCKIA NOBILIS

BLUE FAN PALM FROM MADAGASCAR
IMPRESSIVE SPECIMEN PALM IN GARDEN

Native to hot areas of Madagascar, this is an intensely blue, medium to large tropical fan palm with large blue leaves.  It wants full sun and loves heat.  Cold tolerance to about 20 degrees F.  Well grown, it is a "show stopper".  Grown in shade, it may not hold its blue color.  In the right areas, expect an eventual height of 30 feet or more.  We're offering three sizes on sale, all great for garden planting right now.  I've shown as well a grove of good sized specimens below.  All three sizes are shown below from 5g up to 25g.

BRAHEA CLARA
BLUE SINGLE TRUNK FAN PALM FROM SONORA, MEXICO


LOVES SUN AND HEAT - SUPER COLD HARDY

This palm is quite similar to the more common Brahea armata.  ItIt is felt by some to be a natural hybrid between Brahea armata and Brahea brandegeei.  It’s considered a “costo-palmate” palm.  It loves sun, takes cold to 15 degrees and is blue in color.  It gets to a height of no more than 20 feet.  Compared to the common Mexican Blue Fan Palm (Brahea armata), it has longer petioles and is faster growing.  Another curious difference we've discovered is the stem armor.  Rather than simple, uniform curved spines, the armor is more like a bad set of shark's teeth.  These are way to big for standard mail order.  Presently, this is the only size I have.  Habitat photo by TS at RPS.

BRAHEA DECUMBENS
DWARF, BLUE, SUCKERING SUN PALM
VERY LIMITED SUPPLY AVAILABLE

This easy to grow Mexican fan palm hardly ever gets over five feet tall.  In the sun, it gets super blue, suckers and doesn't have a large footprint in the garden.  Surprisingly, when young, plants are green in color.  But, outdoors in the sun, I guarantee that they'll turn blue.  Leaves are small compared to other Braheas.  It is rare and, unfortunately, very slow growing.  I am showing here our 5 gallon plants which are about 5-6 years old.  They are quite old for their containers.  This species will take sun in all areas and does not like shade.  It does well in desert areas.  Cold tolerance is about 17 to 18 degrees.  Note:  When sold out, it'll be a long time before we offer them again.  We only have a few 2g left.  From the photo you can tell it's an older plant as it's crawling on the survace.  We only have a few left.

BRAHEA DULCIS

MEDIUM SIZED FAN PALM FROM MEXICO
VARIABLE IN HEIGHT AND CHARACTER

This good looking fan palm comes from southern Mexico as well as various countries in Central America.  There is variability in this species: Some plants are green, others blue.  Some specimens get to twenty feet, others remain shorter. Over time, leaf bases fall away to give a smooth trunk.  This species likes part sun or full sun along the coast and is cold hardy to about 20 degrees F.  Photo by Angello Porcelles.

BRAHEA ELEGANS
THE FRANCESHI PALM
MEDIUM SIZE MATURE

You don't see this species offered that often.  It is native to the Sonora and Sinaloa areas of Mexico.   It has green costo-palmate leaves that are divided.  Trunk diameter is a pleasant 12 inches with a rough surface.  Mature height is ten to twenty feet.  Regarding culture, it is not quite as cold hardy as other Brahea species like armata, clara and decumbens.  I'd suspect it may go down to the lower 20’s or perhaps upper teens F.  It does best in full sun.  We just got in a limited number of nice 5g plants which we’re putting on special.  They are easy to ship.

BRAHEA MOOREI 
THE DWARF ROCK PALM
SUPER RARE - SOUGHT AFTER MEXICAN FAN PALM


Shown below are 3-4 year old juvenile plants of the super rare and hard to find Brahea moorei.  The seeds for these plants came from a fruiting tree in San Diego County.  They were very slow to germinate.  This is is a very small, dwarf species with overall height of four to six feet.  Leaves are near fully circular with deeply divided segments.  The underside of the leaves are brilliantly white and often you'll see a white color on the dorsal segment margins.  Culturally, you can grow this in strong filtered light, part day sun or possibly full sun along the coast.  Cold hardiness is into the low 20's F.  It is very slow growing.  The garden photo is c/o PACSOA.

This interesting fan palm is native to Mexico down to Guatemala.  It attains a height of thirty feet with a stout trunk of one foot in diameter.  The most attractive thing about this palm are its circular leaves, with only partial division of the segments. It takes filtered light to full sun on the coast.  Cold hardiness is into the mid to low twenties F.  The leaves are a shiny green and the petioles are essentially un-armed.

BRAHEA SPECIES "SUPER SILVER"
BLUE FAN PALM FROM MEXICO
THINNER TRUNK THAN 
BRAHEA ARMATA

Shown here is a 15 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 and attach a scientific name.  Seeds have been available only twice.  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 15g size.  Limited numbers.

THE TIGER PALM - STRIPED CROWN SHAFT
ANOTHER SPECIES OF THIS GREAT GENUS

This species of Burretiokentia comes from the highest elevation of the three species of this genus from New Caledonia.  It grows at altitudes of almost 4000 feet.  It has a thin trunk of about six inches and can get to sixty feet tall.  It has a prominently bulging crown shaft that is known for it's diagonally dark markings.  Thus, the name "Tiger Palm".  The crown shaft is reddish-brown in color and has prominent striations as shown below.  Younger trunks are green with rings unless exposed to sun.  The crown of this species is full and round with upright and arching leaves.  As with all New Caledonian species, ample water is crucial. The size on special are in 15 gallon pots.

THE BLUE PINDO OR JELLY PALM
NICE BLUE LEAVES - FULL SUN - VERY COLD HARDY


This is a unique variety of Butia capitata that has a nice blue color.  Otherwise, it's quite similar to the regular green Pindo Palm.  This palm loves full hot sun and can take down to 15 degrees F.  Growth rate is medium.  Presently we only have 25 gallon sized plants that are not the "bluest" we've had but still showing blue color and are very large plants.  Almost everyone that doesn't get severe cold can grow this palm.  Garden photo by Paul Craft.

BUTIA PARAGUENSIS
COLD HARDY SHORTER PINNATE PALM
RARELY AVAILABLE FOR SALE


This single trunk pinnate palm is from Brazil and Paraguay.  I think the most notable thing is that it doesn't overly tall.  Almost always, this species is under ten feet overall.  Rarely it is taller.  So, it might be perfect when you need a smaller tree.  It is super cold hardy and likes full sun.  Cold hardiness should be similar to the Pindo Palm, about 15 degrees F.  We have five gallon size available in limited numbers.  We haven’t offered this size of plants for about ten years.  These would be simple to mail order.  The tall habitat photo by TS at RPS shows a totally mature specimen.  The smaller plant was taken by me at a garden and supposedly was ten years old.

A hybrid palm that is super attractive, gets to a height of about 25 feet and is cold hardy to about 16 degrees.  It comes from Butia flowers that have been pollinated with Queen Palm pollen (by hand).  Thus, it's a smaller alternative to the Queen Palm.  Does well in full sun, even in the desert.  Very rare and hard to find.  If you live in a colder area, this palm takes the weather much better than a Queen Palm and is a lot prettier.  Many say it resembles to Coconut Palm.

CARYOTA GIGAS
MOUNTAIN GIANT FISHTAIL - GIANT BLACK FISHTAIL
AKA CARYOTA OBTUSA


This is one of the most popular Fishtail Palms because of it's beautiful full leaves.  It has leaf lengths up to 14 feet with similar widths and definitely produces shade.  It is quick growing and has a thick trunk, especially at the base.  So, it needs plenty of room.  It wants full sun and is cold hardy to the low 20's F.  Like all Fishtail Palms, it is monocarpic - and dies when it flowers and finishes its seeding process.  This palm is rather hard to find with size nowadays.  A side note is that one taxonomist feels it should be called "Caryota obtusa", a species from India.

CARYOTA URENS
THE GIANT MOUNTAIN FISHTAIL
FAST GROWING - SUPER TAL
L

Caryota urens is a tall single trunk monocarpic palm species native to Asia.  It is fast growing and can get to a height of 70 feet.  It is definitely a canopy-forming palm species.  Leaves a green and leaflets are premorse (jagged at their ends).  Some people love the grandeur of these palms.  Trunks are tan, ringed and about 16 inches diameter on average.  It will get taller and more quickly get there than almost any other palm in your garden.  They want full sun and, especially if inland, plenty of water.  Because they are monocarpic (flower and then die), one needs a plant that is near death to get seeds.  This occurs rarely.  We were able to germinate seeds from such a plant.  I’ve not had seedlings for six to eight years.  They are on their first or second leaf and can be mail ordered within the U.S. easily.  Seeds haven't been available for years and this is the first time we've offered young plants for ten years.

CHAMAEDOREA ADSCENDENS
SUPER RARE UNDERSTORY PALM WITH SATIN SHEEN TO LEAFLETS
DWARF SPECIES - SUPER DIFFICULT TO FIND

This is a solitary trunk dwarf species from Guatemala and Belize.  It was only introduced into the trade in the past two decades.  Stems are thin and a white-tan color.  Leaves are blue green with an iridescent sheen.  Leaves are pinnate and sometimes simple, especially when young.  Height of this palm is usually under three feet, but plants in the wild have been reported to be five to six feet.  It is cold hardy to about a freeze and prefers filtered light.  Planting in small colonies is very attractive.  This species is almost impossible to find.  We got our seeds from a famous botanist, so I know they are correctly produced without hybridization.  The seedlings on sale have four leaves and are two years old.  They can easily be mail ordered.  They’d make a great interior or patio plant as well.

SIMPLE LEAF AND DWARF UNDERSTORY PALM
GREEN LEAVES - ABOUT TWO FEET TALL MATURE
UNBELIEVABLY RARE


This is another super rare and impossible to find understory single trunk palm with simple bifid green leaves and a think trunk.  It was just discoved in 1995 and is from Honduras.  Leaves are about 12 to 16 inches long and, from immature size, elongate a bit with age.  The seeds from this species came from a well known botanist and are pure.  It wants to be in shade or filtered light with very dappled sunlight at most.  It is cold hardy into the upper twenties F.  The size on sale are bands.  We may have a few 1 gallon as well.  But, it's near impossible to find.  If you like simple leaf palms, don't miss out on this one.  The garden photo is c/o Palmpedia.

THE NECKLACE PALM
DWARF SIMPLE LEAF SHADE PALM

Chamaedorea geonomiformis is a very rare and small single trunk palm with simple bifed leaves.  Trunks are thin and about 3/8 inch in diameter.  Leaves are usually under a foot long and green in color.  Leaf texture is thick.  This is a sought after species by enthusiasts because it's so small and "cute".  Mature height is usually under three feet.  It wants filtered light and is cold tolerant into the mid-twenties F.  We have very limited numbers of this palm.

CHAMAEDOEA SCHIPPII
UNBELIEVABLE RARE SUCKERING SHADE PALM
FIRST TIME AVAILABLE IN 30 YEARS

Taxonomically, this species of Chamaedorea is an accepted species.  Unfortunately, this species disappeared from the market about 30 years ago.  This is a suckering green leaf understory species that gets a mature height of twelve to fourteen feet and have an appearance similar to C. costaricana.  But, the leaves are longer and the trunks are thicker.  Trunks remain vertical and don't usually lean.  This species has historically been used to make some of the more interesting Chamaedorea hybrids including the famous "Irving Cantor" cross.  They were chosen for hybridization because of their strong vertical trunks.  Cold tolerance is into the twenties F.  We are offering a limited number of small seedlings for sale.  This is the first time we've had them in 25 years!  The garden photo is of a plant at my personal garden.  There's few gardens worldwide that have mature specimens of this species.  Note on the 15 gallon photo how tall the stem is before the plant suckers.  These are super good growers!

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' fits below the ceilings of most homes.  It is a suckering species with thin canes and leaves that are about three feet long with green leaflets.  Outdoors, it wants filtered light and is cold hard into the mid, perhaps lower 20's F.  But, I've seen coastal residents growing it in near full sun - and they don't look bad.  The size on sale is our oversized 15g plants.  Limited numbers.

DOES BEST IN SHADE – STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL

This is a very large, single trunk species that is native to a long range, spanning from Mexico into the northern parts of South America.  It is very sought after by enthusiasts and is known as one of the tallest of all Chamaedoreas - reaching heights of possibly over forty feet.  The trunk has a prominent crownshaft and is four inches thick or more.  It's leaves are four to five feet long with a prominent petiole.  Leaf color is a deep green and, in cross section, the leaves are slightly keeled.  In Southern California, this species prefers shade or a bit of sun.  It has been said that this species cannot take a freeze.  More recent reports suggest this species can tolerate temperatures into the upper 20's F.  It is known to be growing in the San Francisco Bay area.  It is a quick grower and sometimes the base of the trunk is swollen.   We have both 5g and 15 gallon on sale.  If you search around, you'll find this species super difficult to find.  The garden photo is by TS RPS.

CHAMAEROPS HUMILIS VULCANO
SUPER RARE & HARD TO FIND DWARF & COLD HARDY FAN PALM
USUALLY UNDER SIX FEET TALL MATURE - BLUE TO GREEN LEAVES

Chamaerops humilis is not, by iteself, a rare palm species.  But, the super small variety (vulcano) is hard to find and tends to cost much more than the standard form.  The main items that make Vulcano different are it's very small palmate leaves, the absence of significant spines on the leaf stems and its small mature size.  For decades I've been aware of the diversity in appearance of Chamaerops humilis.  There have always been plants in gardens that are quite tall - up to twenty feet.  In contrast, there have always been super dwarf forms around.  And, leaf color has been variably seen as green, blue or something in-between.  By report in Northern Africa, there are indigenous varieties that are very small.  About a decade ago we started to see offerings of this "vulcano" variety. This variety is super cold hardy to about 15 degrees or colder.  It wants full sun.  Mature photo by Martin Gibbons, Palm Centre UK.

COCCOTHRINAX BARBADENSIS
MEDIUM SIZED, NARROW TRUNK
VERY "CUTE PALM" WITH GREEN OR SILVER GREEN LEAVES


 We at the nursery are very proud that we offer a good selection of these interesting New World fan palms.  Coccothrinax are native to the Caribbean region.  This species, C. baradensis, gets to heights of about 30 feet in many decades.  Leaf color is green to silver-green and trunks are typically six inches thick or a bit more.  This species loves full hot sun and is cold tolerant into the mid-twenties F.  Many are growing it with good success.  In pots, all Coccothrinax are painfully slow.  Our plants are grown from seed which we germinate.  After a 6 month wait, one gets one small green strap leaf.  It takes 2 to 3 more years to get a fan-type leaf.  Thus, it's taken us about eight years to produce the 5g plants you see here.  In the ground they are much faster.

This hybrid palm was created by an elderly enthusiast in Thailand from Queen Palm pollen placed on receptive flowers of S. schizophylla.  The hybrid produced is beautiful and much prettier than either parent.  It really doesn't resemble either parent and is totally different than the Queen Palm.  It takes full sun, can be grown in some desert areas and only gets to a height of 20 to 25 feet.  It is lush and green and cold hardy to the lower 20's.   It is near impossible to find and will NOT be available in the future.  These are always expensive.  As we have very few of these, if they sell out we may have to make them special order if available.  Last photo by J.I.

SMALLER SPECIES, WHITE-SILVER CROWN SHAFT
NEAR EXTINCT IN THE WILD


Among taxonomists, Dictyosperma is known as a "monotypic" genus.  This means there is only one species.  Older varietal names such as "rubrum" and "furfuraceum" are out.  Now the taxonomist say there are three varieties of Dictyosperma album - and the prior variety called "rubrum" apparently is grouped with the aureum present type variety.

Currently there are three varieties of D. album:

Dictyosperma album variety album
Dictyosperma album variety aureum
Dictyosperma album variety conjugatum

What we've known as D. furfuraceum is now called D. album variety conjugatum.  This is the smallest species of the group and gets to mature heights of ten to fifteen feet.  It's from Round Island.  Reports are that it is critically endangered with only a few plants remaining in the wild.  It has a definite white powdery color to leaf stems and to the crown shaft.

It's near impossible to find the Dictyosperma conjugatum for sale.  Previously we had some old specimens but those are long gone. We're offering you plants in 2 gallon pots presently on special.  Only a few are left for sale.  The great garden photos are by Tim Rann

Very little is known about this palm.  It’s even unclear as to whether it’s a true species or some kind of Dypsis hybrid.  It is a thin trunked, suckering species that enthusiasts are growing and discussing.  Many are having success with it.  The trunks are about 2 inches thick, the crown shafts have dark speckles and a silver color and the trunks are prominently ringed.  Consensus is to grow it in filtered light and let it work its way into the sun.  This is one of the rare times that we’ve offered them for sale.  They are extremely rare.  Very limited numbers are available.  Garden photo by unknown author c/o PalmTalk.

DYPSIS SAINTELUCEI

SINGLE TRUNK - WHITE CROWN SHAFT
NATIVE TO MADAGASCAR
HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER - MEDIUM SIZE MATURE


This single trunk palm in native to forest regions in southern Madagascar.  It is known for its powdery white crown shaft.  Mature it is a medium sized palm with a rather thin trunk and height of about twenty feet.  It is being grown well in Southern California.  I’ve heard from some that it's one of the better Dypsis to grow here.  Leaves are arranged in a tristichous pattern and are plumose (fluffy).  It tolerates sun or part sun.  The exact cold hardiness is not well established but probably about 25 degrees F.  Mature height is 15 to 20 feet.  These 5 gallon plants would be easy to ship.  Mature photo by TS at RPS.

DYPSIS SPECIES ORANGE CRUSH
A BEAUTIFUL DYPSIS WITH NO SPECIES NAME
MANY TIMES SPORTS AN ORANGE CROWN SHAFT
MEDIUM MATURE HEIGHT - EXOTIC AND SOUGHT AFTER


This is another exotic species that is near impossible to find.  It is native to Madagascar, gets to a mature height of about 20 feet, has an 8 inch thick trunk and, most appealing, is the smooth orange colored crown shaft. (see last photo).  We have available some 2 gallon plants.  It is recommended that you grow this one for a year or two before planting.  At one point, orange crush was felt to be Dypsis pululifera.  But, that was proven incorrect by taxonomists.  It presently has not species name.  I'd start it in strong filtered light or slowly acclimate it to some sun.  Cold tolerance is probably not much below a freeze. The last photo was taken by TS at RPS.

EUTERPE EDULIS
A FORM OF THE "ACAI" BERRY PALM
MEDIUM SIZE PALM WITH THIN TRUNK

This palm species makes seeds which are the source of the "Acai berry juice".  This species makes large numbers of dark purple seeds, so it's no surprise that it is loaded with antioxidant properties and someone would market it.  Euterpe edulis is a fast growing, thin trunked, pinnate palm with a long colorful crown shaft.  Crown shaft color varies from green to a mahogany brown.  This species is native to Brazil and northern Argentina.  It is cold hardy into the mid-twenties F.  It prefers to start as a younger plant in strong filtered light and work its way into the sun

BEAUTIFUL MEDIUM SIZED PALM WITH SILVER CROWN SHAFT

BIG MOUNTAIN OR UMBRELLA PALM

This sought after single trunk palm gets to about 20 feet height, has an umbrella shaped canopy of leaves, a silver ringed trunk, and produces large red fruit.  It comes from the mountains on Lord Howe Island, the home of the Kentia Palm.  Leaves are green and re-curved.  It is stunningly beautiful and tolerates coastal sun and temperatures to about 24 degrees F.  These plants are huge for a 15g and 12 years or more old!  As this species is slow growing, it's next to impossible to this species other than as a seedling.  Very limited numbers are available.

HOWEA BELMOREANA
THE SENTRY OR UMBRELLA PALM
THE RARE TYPE OF KENTIA PALM

This species of single trunk, "non-crown shafted" pinnate palm is native to medium elevations on Lord Howe Island.  At one time is was possible to import seeds of this desirable palm along with Hedyscepe and Lepidorrhachis.  Because of conservation laws, the island can no longer legally export seeds or seedlings.  This has created a shortage of the more rare species from this locality.   Howea belmoreana is different from the Howea forsteriana (classic Kentia Palm) as it has curved leaves and an umbrella-shaped crown.  It also might be a bit more cold hardy.  It prefers filtered light or a little sun inland and can take more sun right on the coast.  Cold tolerance is about 24 degrees F.

This popular single trunk palm is tropical appearing, has green leaves and gets to a height of thirty feet in thirty years.  Leaves and leaflets tend to droop.  It also makes a great patio or interior palm.  Cold tolerance is about 25 degrees F.  In inland areas, it wants filtered light or part day sun.  Of note, it is often planted with several in a pot.  For this reason, people think it suckers, but it does not.  We have an assortment of sizes on sale as below.  Some are singles and others multiples.  We also have a limited number of interior quality Kentia Palms (not shown here).

This is a single trunk, crown shafted pinnate palm native to New Caledonia.  Many feel it's the prettiest species of this genus.  It gets to a height of about 40 feet or more and has a thin trunk.  Leaves are upright, green and arched.  They are keeled and green in color.  The crown shaft is a copper color, covered with a white wax.  It can be grown in some sun, depending on where you live.  It's probably best to start it in bright filtered light and let it work its way into overhead sun.  Growth rate is good, comparable or faster than K. oliviformis.  Cold tolerance is down to about a freeze.  This is an extremely difficult species to find for sale nowadays.  I am offering our 5 gallon size on Special.  This is followed by a habitat photo by TS at RPS.

This is a single trunk species from Brazil.  Polyandrococos is a monotypic genus with only one species.  More recently a taxonomist grouped it with Allagoptera. Its height is variable, depending on conditions.  However, some trees can get up to thirty feet tall.  The trunk is medium sized, about twelve inches thick, with no crown shaft.  The leaves are eight to ten feet long and very silver underneath. It also has gorgeous clusters or orange colored (mature) seeds that are the color of orange sherbet ice cream.  This is a very rare plant and hard to find.

PRESTOEA MONTANA
AKA PRESTOEA ACUMINATA
NATIVE TO PUERTO RICO

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.  The hallmarks of this species are its wide and very shiny green leaves, its somewhat slender trunk and its overall beautiful appearance.  Plant heights can reach forty feet or more.  This species should be grown in part day sun or filtered light.  I'd estimate its cold tolerance is down to about a freeze or a bit less.  Note that this species has historically been known as "Prestoea montana" but in more recent years has been considered a variety of P. acuminata.

PRITCHARDIA HILLEBRANDII - A HAWAIIAN LOULU FAN PALM
MEDIUM SIZED MATURE - NICE SEMI-FLAT GREEN LEAVES

WHITE TOMENTUM ON LEAF STEMS AND INNER CROWN


If you like fan palms, then you have to try some Pritchardia palms.  There are about 25 species of Pritchardia.  All the best ones come from the Hawaiian Islands.  The species from the South Pacific are to be avoided as they don't do well here.  This species is from Hawaii and reaches a medium height of 25 feet.  Leaves are green.  They have white tomentum (hairs) on the leaf stem and trunk.  I’d estimate the trunk diameter at about eight inches by my experience.  It becomes clean as old leaf bases fall off.  Growth rate is medium.  This is a very attractive palm.  I have one in my garden that gets partial sun and is at least 20 feet tall.  Cold tolerance is into the mid-twenties F.  Mail order easy.

I haven't been able to offer this superior fan palm as they have not been available for over five years.  But, we do have one or two very old plants that we were holding in stock and have decided to sell.  This is a very rare type of Lady Palm.  This species is from China and is often mistaken for Rhapis humilus.  But, it is a smaller species, getting to about 8 feet tall whereas humilus gets about twice as tall.  It performs well inside the home or office and also is quite easy to grow outside in filtered light.  The stems of multifida are much more attractive than the common Lady Palm, Rhapis excelsa.  It also carries more leaflets per leaf than the Lady Palm and is overall a more attractive plant.  The leaflets are narrow and come to a point like Rhapis humilus.  Side by side, the majority of our customers prefer the Rhapis multifida to the Rhapis excelsa.  Cold hardiness is into the mid-twenties or lower, F.  Outdoors, this species prefers filtered light.   One must be careful not to give Rhapis too much fertilizer or leaf burn may occur.  WE have two sizes available that we're putting on Sale.

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 may shown colors of red to purple.  With age they are a brown-green.  Leaves are green and arching.  Trunks are prominently ringed.  It will take coastal sun or part day sun.  Some grow it in strong filtered light.  Far inland it needs protection from full sun.  Growth rate is slow to medium.  We’re putting n two sizes on Sale.   The last photo is c/o cloudforest website.

RHOPALOSTYLIS SAPIDA 
THE SHAVING BRUSH PALM OR FEATHER DUSTER PALM
A SUPERIOR PALM WITH BULGING CROWN SHAFT

Plain and simply put, this is a superior and great palm for Southern California.  It is fairly cold hardy and the only thing you have to decide is how much sun to give it.  Up to about eight miles from the ocean, it tolerates full sun.  Further inland it needs part day sun.  Far inland requires filtered light.  Cold tolerance is into the low 20's F.  This species is an easy grow up in the SF Bay area.  This species is most known for it's large, bulging crown shaft and upright leaves.  The crown of leaves is "V-shaped" as shown on large specimens below.  Maximum height is about 30 feet.  Growth rate is slow, especially when young.  I've found that I can't get a vertically trunked plant in a 24 inch box no matter how long I grow it.  To get trunk, this species really has to be in the ground.  Native habitat is New Zealand.  The only size we have presently are band sized seedling.  But, do check out our Rhopalostyllis sapida hybrids further below.  .

RHOPALOSTYLIS SAPIDA HYBRIDS
SHAVING BRUSH OR FEATHER DUSTER PALM
MEDIUM SIZE, SWOLLEN CROWN SHAFT

These were plants we purchased into our nursery as "Rhopalostylis sapida".  But, on closer inspection they keyed out to be a hybrid.  This was apparent with their curved leaves and rusty-brown leaf stems. They should follow the cultural advice above under "sapida" but will look a bit different.  I think they'll still take full coastal sun.  Inland areas should provide part day sun.   We only have 15 gallon size and maybe a few 20 gallon.  BTW, I don't have any photos of the mature hybrid.  But, the grower we ot them from had both sapida and baueri intermingled and he collected his own seeds.

ROYSTONEA BORINQUENA

PERHAPS A MORE COLD HARDY ROYAL PALM
DIFFICULT TO FIND – BUT SEEDLINGS NOW AVAILABLE

During the winter of 2007 when we had a severe cold spell, I came to find that this species or Royal Palm seemed to possess more cold hardiness than Roystonea regia and others that are more commonly seen.   Our area got down to about 25 degrees F.  An enthusiast about a mile from the nursery said his R. regias were totally burned but the Roystonea borninquena went untouched.  Because of this I pursued seeds and grew more.  We've sold a lot of this beautiful palm since then and have gotten similar reports.  This species is native to Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and a few other islands.  You'll note the absence of the super swollen base often seen with other species.  It likes full sun, enjoys ample water and can get to heights over forty feet.  More recently, availability has been less plentiful, but we plan to carry them as much as we can.  Shown here are mature specimens of this species.  In recent times we've had no seeds available until recently and presently can offer band sized seedlings

ROYSTONEA REGIA
CUBAN ROYAL PALM
LARGE, MAJESTIC, BEAUTIFUL

This species is a larger, sun-loving, single trunk palm with a prominent, bright green crown shaft that gets to an average height of about forty feet.  It has a swollen base, is quick growing and cold tolerant to about 25 degrees F.   If you want a specimen palm that's real showy, this species might be perfect.  There is a scarcity of Royals right now (especially with size).  We're putting three sizes gallon on sale.  This is a quick growing palm that has been doing great for growers in this area.  Don't be afraid to try a smaller size like a 5 gallon.  With proper culture, it'll grow very fast.

ROYSTONEA OLERACEA
The SOUTH AMERICAN ROYAL PALM
TALL, LONG GREEN CROWN SHAFT, VERY ELEGANT

This species of Royal Palm is different from the Cuban Royal not only because it's from the Southern Hemisphere but also because the crown of leaves are usually above the midpoint of the crown with few if any leaves hanging downwards.  It is quick growing, likes full sun and is cold hardy into the 20's F.  It's also very hard to find.  We only have seedlings presently.

SYAGRUS KELLYANA
SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZED PINNATE PALM
A RARE AND SMALLER ALTERNATIVE TO THE QUEEN PALM
FULL CROWN OF GREEN LEAVES

This single trunk Syagrus is native to Brazil and only gets to heights of ten to twenty feet.  The trunk is thin and clean over time.  Leaves are somewhat plumose and green.  Fruits are fairly large and yellow in color.  Some comment that is is similar to S. picrophylla.  It is a full sun palm with an, as of yet, unknown cold tolerance.  I suspect it'll go into the twenties for sure.  It is a newly introduced species so there's little cultural information.  Note on the mature palm pictures that the leaves down go much below the spherical circle of crown leaves.  I find this very appealing.  I’m offering 5 gallon plants on special.  They are hug for their pots.  This is a very rare species to find.  Mature plant photo below is by Paul Craft - PalmNut.

VEITCHIA WININ
RATHER COLD HARDY CROWN SHAFTED TROPICAL PALM
HARD TO FIND SPECIES



When I first started growing palms a long time ago, Veitchia winin was touted as being the most cold hardy species of the genus.  It's a medium sized palm with a ringed trunk, pinnate leaves and a mature height of about 30 feet.  It is similar in appearance to Veitchia arecina and also wants full sun along the coast.  I'd estimate cold hardiness into the mid to upper 20's F.
