RE: link to another Island Jim beauty...

Talk about a plant that makes a major architectural statement!  That is so
beautiful, Jim!  It has to feel pretty good to see the fruits of your tender
labors bring forth something so very bold and gorgeous.

Thank you, Donna. I planted the seed for this palm 5 years ago next 
February. It took about 6 months to germinate, and forever--maybe 2 
years--to develop anything that looked like a stem. Now it's 4 to 5 
feet tall. I love it. It has the best color of any Bismarckia I've ever 
seen, including those at Selby Botanical Garden, Naples Botanical 
Garden, and Fairchild Tropical Gardens.
