Dypsis lutescens in our yard..


You may be familiar with the Cane Palm (dypsis lutescens) seen in homes and offices and malls as decorative potted palms.

Be Aware, if planted in the ground in sub tropic Florida it can and will grow to 40 feet and will spread as far as you let it....
While researching for the name of this palm I found this site called www.lovetoknow.com .
 Click here for Palm ID and HERE for my CAT LOVING FRIENDS

www.lovetoknow.com is really cool and has something for everyone.


Jakes favorite place in our yard is under and through and behind this large group of palms.. the possums and raccoons and a few rats have been know to love this plant to.  I love taking photos of the fronds. the below photos are to show you just how tall it is...we all three LOVE our Jungle...

They sure can run amok when planted out. I had to get my palms cut down as they were dropping their heavy fronds onto the roof, the other plants and me if I was gardening.The jungle looks great. Do you get snakes too.?

Hello, Sandra! I love the big palm. It looks beautiful. Not too crazy over raccoons and rats, though. I am sure a raccoon knocked over my hummingbird feeder last night. Thanks for the link. Enjoy your day and week ahead!

The palm definitely is gorgeous!!! A tropical paradise. I'm not quite sure I could pronounce the scientific name without twisting my tongue. I'd need a frozen margarita to loosen up a bit.

WOW!!!! That's amazing. The fronds are so beautiful.

This looks so green and lush. We try to grow varieties of palms in our arid southern Utah home where it doesn't get too cold in the winter, but have limited success.

wow, huge!

Lois said...

They are pretty! I'm sure there are a lot of critters taking refuge there, especially during hot weather.

Gail said...

That is a very awesome tree. I might be tempted to hollow a path to the solitude too.

Your is huge. I know that there are issues in California with rats living up in the palm trees. I do love palm fronds.

I have thoughts about our cats...one is I KNOW I am their servant....Roger said he thought he would be done having to open and and close doors when he retired, but he was wrong. I know they smile when we come outside and sit with them. I need to think of a few more and do a blog post about them sometime....

I owuld have loved that jungle when I was a kid, and even now. And oh, boy, a cat I used to have would totally have loved it.
