HAVE: Heliconias for Palms

bihai(zone 9)February 11, 2006

I have the following varieties of heliconias to trade for palm seedlings. I have a list of palms that I want, however, I am open to any offer you might make for something that I can't get at Lowes, Walmart or Home Depot or that I don't already have (I have Pygmy Date, Needle, Sabal, Parlor and Med Fan palms). Palms do not have to be hardy, they are going into a tropical greenhouse planting.

The heliconia rhizomes available are from stands of mature blooming plants. I also have other things available, check my trade list

Heliconias available:

Heliconia stricta Tagami

Heliconia stricta Firebird

Heliconia caribaea Burgundy (very large heavy rhizomes)

Heliconia bihai Banana Split (becoming limited)

Heliconia pendula Red Waxy (becoming limited)

Heliconia psitticorum x spathocircinata Tropica (limited)

Heliconia psitticorum x spatho ALan Carle

Heliconia latispatha Orange Gyro

Heliconia latispatha Red-Orange Gyro (large rhizomes)

Heliconia latispatha Roadrunner (very large heavy rhizomes)

Palm seedlings I am looking for:

Any licualas

Acanthophoenix rubra

Dypsis ambositrae

Dypsis baronii

Dypsis lanceolata

Dypsis lutescens (Areca Palm)

Hyophorbe lagenicaulis (Bottle Palm)








tuereicheimii (potato chip palm)

Astrocaryum mexicanum (Choco Palm)

Basselinia gracilis

Linospadix monostachya (Walking Stick Palm)

variegated Rhapis excelsa

I have one, maybe two Howea forsteriana, Kentia palms. I have seen them on rare occasions at the home centers around here but they usually want around $100 for them.
The most beautiful palm in my humble opinion. : )

I emailed you about your Howea but never heard from you. I am interested in them if you still have them available, also in some other things from your trade page.

Chambeyronia macrocarpa-watermelon crownshaft seedlings in a 1 gallon pot. It was measured about 2 ft tall from the soil line and I have 8 avaialbe. I know you didn't ask this for trade, but I thought you might be interested to trade that for the Heliconia caribaea. I read your page and noticed that you will not deliver to California. I have a plant permit that comes along with a yellow/green label that is allowed to deliver all over the U.S. I don't know if you're fimiliar with that. I thought I could ask you if you're open to that.
Hope to hear from you soon,
- Leentje
