Palmate:

Thank! :>)

I was more impressed with the very large Podocarpus gracilior! This is how large they grow in the tropics.

I have two about 30'..I planted them from one gallon CANS ( how olden days is that?), from the old Western Garden nursery in Hayward in 1978. I do much thinning so shade plants under it get decent light.

Wow! That's going back quite a ways in time.

I loved Western Garden Nursery on Hesperian Blvd. It was my favorite nursery, just like Fuji Nursery in Hayward on Soto Rd. They had certified nurserymen working there. Those were the good old days. LOL!
