Bismarckia nobilis - Bismarck Palm


 Bismarckia nobilis - Bismarck Palm

This Bismarck Palm in Balboa Park has a strange curved trunk. I think it’s because it’s very close to the Australian Banyan tree. Photo taken Nov. 15, 2020.

I just love these palms . You cannot miss them, such a beautiful silver colour.

I know, it’s a beautiful palm. This one is kind of small usually the fronds are gigantic. I think it needs more water. There’s several throughout Balboa Park.

Have to concur! It’s a beautiful, architectural plan. It would be a perfect stand alone plant in any garden.

It needs a lot of space, though. It becomes a huge palm.

I have never seen them very tall Delonix but always very wide.

Klahanie,

There’s 30 to around 50 ft tall trees here, however, they’ve only been in cultivation for 40 years. The trees in Madagascar grow to 125 ft. (They’re probably 100 years plus years old).
