Took this one that caught my eye out of many palmettos in this community near little Washington NC, small & compact in stature making a nice landscape specimen.

Also near little Washington, cypress & spanish moss that screams the south.

Great looking pindo, hope mine gets that big one day. Amazing what you can grow only a few hours away.

I enjoyed all the shots, but really liked that handsome butia. It looks so healthy, wonder what type it is - how old is it? Did you try the fruit?

I have the butia yatay.

Is that the Pamlico River in the background? Beautiful pics. Do you ever get any gators in the area?

dixieboy,
Gotta love that Butia and those Cycads.It's hard to grow both of them even as far south as I live.It's not nessaserly the cold that kills them here,it's the winter rain and cold.We get most of our rain during the winter months.Summertime here is very hot very humid with very little rain,except when those thunderstorms come through that dont do anything any good.Love the pics.as usual.

Glad you enjoyed the pics, i think i planted it maybe around '80' give or take a few years in a small container. It's just your run of the mill type butias you find in the trade & i should have 2 clumps of fruit ready within days now & just before they begin to fall is when i eat, they are very good, like a orange-banana blend with fiber that's good for the body.

Actually it's the Pungo & Pamlico rivers you see from our place & yes anywhere the water gets to be on the fresher side you can look for a gator resident, they are saying there's a 7 to 8 footer up this creek but we are on the salty side, i personally really havn't seen any sign of one right here.

RE: 7 random shots-Randy

It's the same here except we most likely will stay a bit milder in the winter months. Now if we both had a climate like St.Simons on the 'Georgie' coast you might see a few queens be'in tried!! lol
