My husband used to say that I wasn’t satisfied until people had to fight their way through the jungle to get to our house. That was long ago and far away, but things haven’t changed much since then. I love this wild tangle of Washingtonian palms, napa palms and hibiscus.
The flowers of this tree are stunning, but the leaves themselves are gorgeous as well.

All of the fruiting bundles have been removed from my 7 palm trees by six men who worked for 6 hours to remove them along with the heavy sheaths you can see hanging down like swords and the dry branchess. A big job. They are beautiful but messy and ultimately dangerous. Two or three times a year they climb these massive trees to remove them.
