Brian it the ups driver dropped it off today. My new Phoenix dactylifera v. Medjool. I was very suprised to see how the leaves stand straight up and the leaves are so blue!!
That's a nice one Mike
What are you going to do with it?
I am sure it will get even more blue outside-Nice!
Thanx jim I was thinking of planting in the ground in between the two trachys. That spot does get alot of sun. How are the seedlings doing jim?
Mike, good luck with your new date palm. I have not had much luck with this species. As with W. filifera, they really seem to resent humid, wet N.J. summers. The Phoenix species I do grow are Canary Island, Pygmy, Senegal, and Cliff Island. Though your picture makes me want to try yet again! I would suggest an extremely porous soil--add generous amounts of perlite and/or sand to your soil mix. Good luck1
njoasis Its ultra humid here aswell. I hope its not doomed. I had a pure filifera mold on me a year or two ago. maybe I should turn of the irrigation next to spot I plan on planting this palm in. I have a large phoenix roebelenii it does very well. Thanx for the advice
It looks really nice and healthy. I hope it does well for you. Keep us updated and good luck!
