Re: First 90F day and a couple palms
Very nice photo. I can almost guarantee they took out the Y. aloifolia because of people being stabbed. I don't know if you remember the huge trunked aloifolia I used to post in a neighborhood here but they disappeared in one day. They were also planted in a median and one of the neighbors told me she was weeding around one and impaled her forehead. I couldn't help but laugh at the story in my head.
In your picture, I'm surprised they planted a needle in the median and not in the yard due to how wide they get. It looks like it fits perfectly right now- and I don't know their growth rate there- but by next summer, that needle would by in the walkway here. Do they actively trim it back?
I need to post some very tall windmills I found but Nashville traffic is getting relentless with all our transplants. I refuse to get close to downtown during certain hours. Lol.
