Here's a Butia and Chammy in a great microclimate ( this winter they haven't needed the microclimate yet ) . All the fronds on the Chammy are all new in one growing season :
My Princeps's first frond got some sunburn from last summer/fall . I'm hoping it outgrows that issue .
Interesting crab claw or octopus like looking fungus :
The Edgeworthia is pretty showy . Lisa says the buds pretty much will stall at this point until February :
Cordyline might get a chance to continue trunking into next season .
My biggest Birmingham . I might like this palm as much or more than any other because it grows fast ( 7 new fronds last season ) , it trunks , and is so hardy . Sometimes I feel like if I'm unable to protect some of my palms ( out of town , etc. ) , some of the varieties of palms that I'm growing are going to be killed one bad night , but I feel like this Birmingham can take it , especially with its' size now . It handled last winter's February record cold week with most of the fronds looking decent after that event . It wasn't protected .
I think I'll get inflorescences on it this spring . Cat for scale :
The sun came out so I decided to add a couple more pictures of the Birmingham :
Daytime picture of my flowering Trachy . I left the ugly lower fronds on it to add to the crown mass so it will hopefully start trunking normally this spring .
It's a male :
And lastly , my Washy is still looking good :

Thanks for looking .
