Re: Post-winter large palm update from Coweta OK
I was surprised to see the one butia looking so good myself. I thought that perhaps they had already replaced it, since it was braced up and still so green. After some thought though, I don't think that makes sense. They didn't replace the other butia, which was clearly dead. So I doubt they would replace just one of them, rather than both or neither of them.
As far as trachycarpus go, I plan on having five in the ground eventually. I've got a couple of waggies that have about 1 ft and 2 ft of trunk respectively that I want to get in the ground this year. I plan on planting them close together and trying to get them angled to create some curve in their trunks. (Both already have some curve)
I also have three smaller takils that I will be planting on the east side of my garage in a flower bed. They are just starting to form trunks. They have been hardier for me than other trachycarpus of similar size, but I am still trying to decide if I want to plant them this year or wait another year to get them bigger first.
Kano ako, Pinoy kayo?
