All but extinct in the wild. You are so lucky to have one, and to have the climate to make the best of it too!

Great pic! Wonderful story to it, too! I am supposing that it got its name after the 19thC german naturalist, Ferdinand Deppe, who explored Mexico. Oxalis deppei, commonly known as "Iron cross", is named after hm, also.

Hey Neighbor!!!

You noticed I posted a pic of the Bougainvillea and Petunias in your front yard. LOL! :>)

I guess I don't have to look at your pics since you live 3 houses down from me. LOL! :>)

Glad you posted your Deppea...as they always look great!!!

Also, you must post a pic of your Wodyetia bifurcata - Foxtail Palm with seeds soon. :>)

Thanks for the welcome!
I too am thankful to Dennis Breedlove for rescuing this plant. Though it is now presumed to be extinct in the wild, I hope someday it can be returned to its native home in the mountain cloud forests of Chiapas, Mexico.

Hi Delonix1, just noticed you here when you were posting some of your pictures yesterday. Lots of great shots!

I've been exploring the website, much to see here. Will post more pictures soon.

Randy:

I think you're going to really enjoy GoY!

Look forward to seeing your Wodyetia bifurcata - Foxtail Palm posted. I think in some of my photos I can see your Foxtail palm in the background from my front yard.
