I just had the pleasure to purchase and view some of the incredible palms in the Marcus garden. During my dinner with Jeff later that evening, I asked him to guess what were the three palms that blew my mind the most this time around. Although he couldn't guess, I thought I would share them here. The first is Lemurophoenix. The last time I saw this the old leaf had just fallen off, and the crown was a phosphorescent bright pink - an absolutely unbelievable palm - a monster. The second is an unidentified Blue Monster. Some say it resembles Dypsis decepiens. But IMO, it is very different than any others I have seen. It is not so much the color, because I have seen pics of some blue tinged DDs. But look at the basal leaflets, and how long and droopy they are - very different than DD. In addition, the crownshaft lacks the heavy white present on many DDs, plus it seems shorter and rounder. Jeff mentioned that when the last sheath fell off this one it was a brilliant orange. This thing is even more impressive in person. The third is open for debate. It is different than another palm in the garden that J. Dransfield tentatively IDed as D. hovomantsina. This palm was labeled as D. hovomantsina, and has undergone a few changes as it grew into this magnificent specimen. Hard to photograph in its location, this was truly mind blowing now that it is approaching adulthood. The color was killer. What a trifecta.
