Fortunately, the weather here in southern California is still holding. It was 84 today. My Hyophorbe still look pretty good, but I know the cold weather that is on the way is going to set them back so I wanted to take a photo today.

Along the driveway from Left to Right: H. lagenicaulis, H. indica and H.verschaffeltii.

How cold does S Cal get in winter ?
Of the three. Which is the best looker? I like the Spindle. Have you tried growing the Hyophorbe Hybrid ( Silver Lady) ? A cross between Bottle and Spindle. Have you found that the Indica is the fastest grower of Hyophorbecpalns? Also, are they all ok to grow near beach?

My three Hyophorbe palm look pretty much the same as they did last year. They put some new fronds, but don't get much taller in only a years time.

I'm in Rancho Santa Margarita in south Orange County, CA.

We had the coolest summer in over 75 years, so they might not have grown as much as they would have during a normal summer. We did, however, hit 109 degrees last Monday.

The palms experience occasional high 30's during the winter. I'm about 10 miles inland from the Pacific. On the beach they would probably survive, but they would probably grow even slower there. There is never any real heat at the beach and Hyophorbe love heat.

So somewhere like Aruba, Carribean, they will grow very fast. Is the Bottle palm better at coping with salt spray from sea? Or how far from coast should they be planted? Are the Hyophorbes your favourite palms? Are these good at coping with drought?
