    Scott, if your Mule palm is still homeless, I’ve got an idea and even a hole for it :). I removed two more stumps.
    It will be in the heat all day in summer and in open northern spot in winter. I believe I need this Palm. Thanks, Pix.

    Hi, palmdude, nice to meet you:).
    Yes, Scott is really very nice :).
    ........... I got a message of your reply to this thread.
    ........... I am stil hoping that the palm I am growing are not what they said it is...
    How about Chamaedorea radicalis??

    Did the Muley ever make it to Pix's yard? If so where are the pictures?

    Scott - if your Muley is still homeless, I'd like to have it to make sure it gets adopted by a palm lover.

    Moose, That one is not homeless any longer, as it is happy living with Pix. I will put your name on this one. pizap.com14281796977881.jpg

    Thanks Scott. I want to be upfront and let you know my intentions are to re-gift it to a friend with a Zone 9a garden. He does not have many feather frond palms. Just letting you know in case you would like to reconsider - Just not much more room here for additional palms.

    Ron :)

    What a score - that should be a beautiful bulletproof palm.

    Thank you, Dean :) It is on the north-west corner of my corner lot protecting me from everything: deadly Nord-West, afternoon sun, road noise, viewers...you name it. But it will probably take me 10 years to get protected??:D ...and also 10 years to identify the palm in question :D...and I never stayed in one place for 10 years :D

    The first photo of the 2 behind the wall look to be Hyophorbe verschaffeltii (common name: Spindle palm). In the second photo the palms in the foreground look to be Wodyetia bifurcate ( common name: Foxtail palm). The two palms in back are Phoenix palms, maybe Phoenix dactylifera or hybrids of.

    Samet,
    Scott has correctly identified your palms.

    Palms are very dependent on what climate they are being grown in. If you tell us where you live, we can better advise you as to what palms are available to you. Whereever that is, you will be very surprised at the variety that is available.

    If you are located where your photos were taken, then you live in a warm or even tropical area. And there are literally over a thousand palms you could grow. You may wish to check out the possibilities here www.palmpedia.net/wiki

    Then you may find this site of particular interest. It specializes in identifying palms that will grow outside of the tropics in Mediterranean and other marginal climates. Most of what is successfully growing in California will be possibilties for where you are. Of course there are many microclimates in both countries, but you can gain a lot of information here.
