This T. Fortunei is my best-looking Windmill. I have plenty of others from different providers - including Plant Delights Nursery - that are fine, but this one has the prettiest crown and stoutest trunk. This is a female, and those are volunteers at its base.
And here is my oldest Butia Capitata. It is now in its 3rd location on my property, and nearly croaked after its first relocation. I’ve never been able to provide it enough sunlight, because I have a lot of mature evergreen and deciduous trees here. So the trunk is still a juvenile after 20 years. It has seen 7 degrees F. twice here at the confluence of 8a/7b - and did not defoliate. It merely lost an emerging spear or two.
So, even though Gerry’s Jungle is no longer in the business (I don’t think) my palms sing its praises every day.
