Palms for Southern California: A Quick Reference Guide

Palms for Southern California: A Quick Reference GuideThis is the long anticipated 4th edition of Palms for Southern California, A Quick Reference Guide. This edition is the largest yet, with many new added species, more comments on most species, and much better illustrations depicting each species. A very valuable new feature is the 1 to 10 rating on every plant saying how well or easily it has been growing in various Southern California counties.



This is the best literature on palms for Southern California you can buy. It is a very practical guide for any palm grower with a nearly complete list of all the palms that can be grown in Southern California along with nearly all the cultivation information you will need. This 8.5" x 11" booklet tells the normal or expected trunk height, trunk width, overall width, leaf length, shade requirements, water requirements, speed of growth, lowest temperature, ability to tolerate dry heat, for every species -- all specifically for Southern California.



Most members carry it everywhere they view palms because it is essentially a golden nugget of information. There are many man-years (person-years?) in the development of this booklet; you simply don't want to find out the hard way the information readily available in this booklet. Please see the inset below for a sample page.
