First visit of the season.

by Las Palmas Norte » 23 hours ago in Palms and The Tropical Look

I was in Victoria, about a 90 minute drive south of my place in Lantzville today. My intention was head into Chinatown for lunch and then swing by Jeff's (Victorian) place in the early afternoon. All went according to plan and the rain that was forecast, was nowhere to be seen. Calm, a high thin overcast and pleasant temps made it a great quick excursion.
Jeff's place never ceases to amaze and captivate me. His largest Jubaea has a 4' wide trunk and several others are close seconds. A number of other palms that enthusiasts may not have even thought of trying, are well established specimens. Some are long standing fine examples of both common and rare. A walk thru his garden really takes you away, like you've suddenly arrived at a much more southerly latitude.

A beast of a Butia (fruit tasting was great) and new flower spikes.

SoCal plant stuff.

by Brian » 23 hours ago in Fruits, Rare Fruits, Orchards and Exotics

So I'm going to be giving a talk in San Bernadino, swinging down to San Diego, then up to the 210 area then back to Bay Area. Are there any rare fruit things to check out you can suggest. I was toying with a stop at Exotica and maybe Fullerton again.

Callistimon citrinus "Little John" hardiness

by Victorian » 1 day ago in Palms and The Tropical Look

I picked up one of these recently. The Monrovia tag said hardy down to zone 8. I have seen zone 9 most of the web sites I searched. Does anyone have any experience in the PNW? Did it flower?
