Here's my Wodveitchia in 2007.

Wow, that is so beautiful! Wodveitchia is without a doubt one of my favorite palm tree hybrids. They seem to do fantastic on the west coast. Looks like your yard has gotten very lush and tropical over the last 7 years. Thanks for sharing!

Nice! Where did you buy your wodveitchia? I can only find dealers in San Diego who sell large palms. I'd like to try my hand with a younger palm and San Diego is a long way to drive for a palm. I'd consider going to the LA Basin for one though, I'm only 3 hours north of LA.

Damn! That looks so good! Where are you in Southern California? and where did you get that palm? Everything looks tropically awesome!

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

I got the palm at Rancho Solidad Nursery in north San Diego County. I'm in south Orange County.

Here's another look at the palm from the front door.

Here's a veiw of the front walkway. The large palm frond in the center is from a triple Chambeyronia macrocarpa. To the right is a Clinostigma savoryanum. The small palm to the left is a Lytocaryum weddellianum.

That is not a Wodyetia, or foxtail, that's a foxy lady palm (Wodyetia X Veitchia).

Didn't call it a Wodyetia, or foxtail. I called it a Wodveitchia or Wodyetia bifurcata X Veitchia arecina (Foxy Lady Palm).
