Sky,

Looks great. The trunk is quite tall now. My Windmill has added 3 fronds since April (#4 is now coming up). I will post a photo ASAP.

The heat and sun have put some stress on things though, grass is sere and some of the garden veggies look a bit burned. Here in coastal southeast CT we need rain. I saw on the news - East Lyme is considering water restrictions, and other towns may follow.

Wave

thanks- both the Fortunei (second photo) and the stiff leafed Wagnerianus are thriving-
I am going to post later two other plants- a Giant Sequoia growing here, and also a Leland cypress.

After two winter seasons here- the two palms are perhaps becoming naturalized- with your palms- and a grower in Stamford who also is growing 'sabal riverside' we are not alone.

I also have a sabal 'McCurtain'- a hardier version of Sabal Minor and Sabal 'Louisiana'- another version of 'Minor'- but it grows faster and produces a small trunk.

Those windmill palms are great, thanks for the pictures. I see a few other smaller palm sin the back. WHAT KIND ARE THEY?

Unfortunately the OP, Skytrekker, is no longer posting on this Board so I am not sure if you will get a response to your post. JayCT, Moderator
