Trying to post several pictures at once to see if it will work now that I have posted 10 times.
First one I planted...

2nd one...

the last one...

All the following ones were planted pretty much at the same time...
this one is in the shade all morning


A double...



Now a picture of these last 2 side by side
Planted at the same time... they obviously do not grow at the same speed !

Wow, those are nice!  How long have you had them?  From seedlings?  How old?  Details please!

They are beautiful..each one has a different personality.  So graceful around your home.  They don't look impacted from winter.   Great job, Lisa!   What about your jub hybrids?

Brad the very first one I planted around 2009. I bought that one from a lady in FL. I was afraid if I was going to keep it in VA I would loose it. So, as soon as we bought the land I planted it. It has been a slow grower compared to all others.
The last one I grew from seeds. I got 2-1 gal from Dr Wilcox ( 1 died) and the others (including the double) I got them as 3 gallons from Brooksville in October 2009 (one of them was the double).
The house was built in 2010 and I started my plantings then. 
The gutters on this house are at 12 feet if that can give you an idea of how tall they are. Fun palms to watch growing !

Cindy, yes they all look different. If I am not mistaken, on my picture of 2, the one on the right will be a monster in years to come.
The fronds did burn some in the previous winter but nothing major.
I did another update about all other palms that I am growing, including some hybrids, after the butias post...
on the old HP forum... have you seen it  ? It is probably on page 2 now. Take a look when you have time. Thanks Cindy.
