Washingtonia filifera California Fan Palm

Seeds of this Washingtonia filifera or California Fan Palm. The California fan palm is one of the most widely grown palms in subtropical climates. California fan palm can grow 60 ft tall with a crown spread of 15 ft. The large gray trunk is barrel shaped and ringed with old leaf scars that may reach over 3 ft in diameter. California fan palm can have up to thirty gray-green palmate (fan-shaped) leaves, each 3-6 ft across. They spread out to form a loose and open crown. The leaf stems of a mature palm are armed with long  curved thorns. The leaflets are pendulous and swing freely in the wind. Cotton-like threads are on and between the leaflets and persist even when the palm is mature. If old leaves are not removed, they form a continuous "petticoat" from the crown all the way to the ground. The California fan palm produces numerous branching flower clusters that project out and often downward from the leaf crown. The bisexual blossoms are white and yellow and give rise to  round red-black fruit, each about a 0.5 in diameter. The fruits of California fan palm contain a single seed, approximately 1/4 in diameter.Zones 8-11. Seeds of this Washingtonia filifera or California Fan Palm.

Wodyetia bifurcata Foxtail Palm

seeds of Wodyeti bifurcata. This palm is native to the scrublands of the rocky northeastern peninsula of Australia. It survives best where temperatures do not fall below 30?F. It can reach heights of 30 feet, growing fast in full sun, but  tolerant of both sunny and shady conditions. The pinnately compound leaves can reach lengths of 8 to 10 feet and are attached to a stem that is 6 to 12 inches long. The dark green leaflets are each a 1/2 foot long, grow whorled around the rachis, and split into segments at the tips. The trunk is light gray to almost white, is somewhat enlarged mid-length, and has dark leaf base scars encircling it. On top of the trunk sits a pale to blue-green, smooth crownshaft, which is the part of the palm where its leaves emerge. The stem's swollen base becomes slender towards the top, and when mature, accounts for as much as 3 feet of the palm's total height. The inflorescence occurs just below the crownshaft, is heavily branched, and bears white male and female flowers. Fruits are 2 inches long, egg shaped, and orange to red when ripe.
