    Hi Ed,
    Yes you are right.
    Common namers are " Teddy Bear Palm, & Redneck Palm."
    2 Cousins are Bangalow and Alexandria Palms .


    Pity there wasn't a little more interest in OZZIE PICS here.

    OK thats strange, I think I just replied to the one that you sent me, but I'll double check when I get home, at work at the moment. You must of thought I was ignoring you!! lol.

    Do you really have flamingos in your yard?

    We actually chatting here, I don't know if that is allowed.
    All the pictures are of my garden including the flamingos, I breed exotic birds as a hobby.... to be continued via e-mail (if I ever get it)

    Hey Ed! Where's my copy of that email? And for those that don't know, Sigtris (who is really Alfonso) has one of the most spectacular gardens in Mexico! Do us all a favor Alfonos and post the link again. I think many on this forum would be wowed at your success with both plants and exotic birds.

    Would love to see it! Alfonso and I trade email all the time so maybe we can just make this a three way conversation via email! One thing I'd like to point out, especially to anyone new on UBC, you can make some great friends who live thousands of miles away as a result of this forum! So join in! Both of these guys are full of plant knowledge as are many others on the forum. Its the best in town. And its free!
