Since we're posting pics
Here are just a few. Seems we in the North love this forum in particular, and photos in general...palms or not. Maybe because warm sunny weather is so precious. The higher in latitude you travel, the smaller the window to grow most things. I must say, so far, this has been a banner year for plantings around here.
From left to right: very full fig tree, windmill palm that went entirely unprotected this past Winter, enduring 3 viscious snowstorms, prickly pear cactus down and to the right with the last of its blooms, and cut basjoo responding nicely.
Blooming aztec gold plumeria
Calamondin orange blooming as well. Great fragrance from orange blossoms.
Blueberries ready for picking. We get nice ones here.
Niagara grapes bunching up. Finally getting some from this vine.
And best of all...a basjoo that I dug up, potted, and brought inside for the Winter...transplanted back outside in March.......flowering. This would be a first for me with these.
