I also have an Ae Ae in the garden, here it is with a newly opened leaf. I gotta re-plant those sunflowers surrounding it. They provide some shade, but don't last very long.

Hi,

finally, I`m back.

Look what I got today - two beautiful "Hua Moa" pups from bananimal. Now they have to get along with an exceptionally cold German summer...or at least the rest of it...

Just wanted to post this picture of two sikkimensis bananas and a moso bamboo to the right. As you can see the banana to the left is much more red than the other, but they come from two different seeds which probably explains it.

These bananas are the one who have grown by far the fastest and the center one has already produced 2 pups. The bamboo has also been growing incredibly fast dispite the cooler weather and has reached 1m (planted it out when it was about 20cm).

Hi, here is an update of my garden (August 2011)





Bananas are invaded by Clerodendron Bungei



Gunnera manicata, trachycarpus fortunei, Eryngium pandanifolium,Hibiscus sino-syriacus...


same plants and hedychiums ,the small tree with white flowers is Clerodendron trichotomum



small sikkimensis



gunnera manicata (still young)





Clerodendron bungei blooming




young sabal palmetto


asplenium scolopendrium and erythrina crista galli



chamaerops humilis cerifera ?leaves are not very blue (the wax is destroyed by too much rainy days in this area)



young jubaea chilensis






unidentified banana :was given to me as an orinoco banana but seems like a cultivar of Basjoo...I remark that leaves are wery wide for the size





Musa hybrid Helen's keeps the same size for years why?



Canna indica and Brugmansia suaevolens



Thalia dealbata and colocasia jack giant



The thalia is jus beginning to bloom





two species of Tetrapanax papirifera growing together (the regular and steroidal giant)



young phoenix theophrastii



Ligularia (i don't remeber the name of the cultivar)



another sort of canna and clerodendron trichotomum



Butia and Parajubaea (certainly TvT)





beschorneria yuccoďdes completely surrounded by weeds



young beschorneria septentrionalis in ground since spring





both of my butias are blooming ,but to late in the season for having fruits

Actually I kept them indoor, spread all over the house I had to shorten the leaves because these which grew indoor were not very wind resistant, as you know.

I have just realised I did it not the last weekend but the one before so these photos are from the last weekend of April.
