Default Sorry for delay.

Geeze, sorry I have been so busy work teaching my kids. and then the husband, forget about it. But I'm sorry to say that my next door neighbor had a palm tree that I was eyeballing and I ended up trading with her. Sorry, But I did see a California Fan Palm at Home depot for cheap, I might pick up a few, maybe a few to trade. I live on the east coast of Florida (Daytona area).

Smile This is a good book on fiji palms

Palms of the Fiji Islands
Dick Watling

The coconut and the Fiji fan palm are by far the best known of Fiji's palms, but both may actually be old introductions to Fiji. This new book, the first ever published on the subject, describes the 31 species of palm that may be found growing wild in Fiji today; 25 of these are considered native and six are introduced. It is 25 little-known indigenous palms that are the core subject of this book as they form a distinctive and unique component of the natural heritage of the Fiji Islands. Fiji's palms are poorly known; indeed, two 'species' are not even scientifically described. They vary in size and form from the delicate 3-4 metre Balaka seemammii to the recently described Hydriastele boumae which is as tall as a coconut emerges from the forest canopy. What we know about these palms should give rise to serious concern. Indeed over half of Fiji's endemic palms are on hte world Red List of endangered plants and are officially categorized by the World Conservation Union as threatened with extinction. The plight of Fiji's palms is a micrcosm of the plight of Fiji's forests which are being butchered and burned, year in and year out, with hardly a mumur of public concern. Palms are a very appropriate conservation flagship for the Fiji islands and also provide a wonderful opportunity for some of the more academic interests of the vunerability of island floras and extinction processes. It is the author's hope that this book will contribute to a greater knowledge and awareness of Fiji's palms and Fiji's pressing forest and biodiversity conservation issues.

Default If you have time to dedicate to your fiji palm then more power to you.

Amber, did you read that book? I was just wondering, I wanted to get another book on palms but just wanted to know if it was a fluid book. It is always it a hit or miss when you buy a book online. The last couple of books I bought where real page turners..Not! Hehe. They had more definations and explained basic palm information.

Default I am thinking about buying a Triangle Palm for my front foyer.

And was wondering if they were cold hardy plants. We have bad snow up here in Ohio and I dont think anything can make it through our winters. I saw that this site says they have winter palms but i really like the Triangle palm. So if anyone knows anything about Triangle palms, just post some info.

Thanks Beth

Default Ohio beth

you probably might want to stick with the cabbage palm or the windmill palm if it gets really cold, but if you don't mind bringing it every now then so it doesn't freeze, then you should be good to go...
