I think I will keep an update on these and any other CIDPs that I can find and post them with pictures at least once a year.

It will be extremly interesting to follow the growth of these palms and to compare how they shape up each year.

The one here in St Denys is growing away fast now and I will have something to show soon.

I love to see growth in plants and put the two pics side by side, or one above the other, so you can see at glance the difference. icon_thumleft

Thats near to the Natural history museum as I remember seeing those palms on the same day that I took the Phoenix canariensis_CIDP pictures.

I was going to post a seperate thread on them later this year after another visit.

The Southsea CIDPs are about a mile further on along Clarence Parade.

Aw I was close then! I don't know Southsea that well so settled for seeing the palms here. Your right with the location though as we passed the museum :)

Spent quite a lot of money in the arcade on the pier though :lol:

Yes you were very close! You need to walk past South Parade Pier as far as the Rock Garden (which has a few nice exotics in it too) then cross over the road at the zebra crossing & walk through Burgoyne Gardens with the Butia's. Then once you have walked through there you will see the Phoenix canariensis across the road planted on 'Ladies Mile' icon_thumleft

I notice that the Brahea armata on 'D-Day Island' is looking better now that it has produced shorter & bluer leaves, another has recently been planted on the roundabout by Clarence Pier too icon_thumleft

Here's a map showing where they are...

Red Dot: Brahea armata (in your pics)
Blue Dots: Butia capitata's
Green Dots: Phoenix canariensis

Oh I was quite close then!! Thank you for the map Nathan, The mrs enjoyed it at Southsea too so we might go back again soon! I was really impressed with the councils work though, being its free to look at too, should fuel everyones addiction for tropics!

Loads of room for more CIDPs and Butias and Jubaeas. :D

Where are they?
