Neutral palmbob On Jun 26, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

deciduous tree (at least in southern California) from Guatemala. Flowers seen in June but looks like it might be end of flower season... only a few left. Grey, solid trunks with large, dull spines on newer ones. Leaves soft and slight fuzzy to the touch. Flowers come off plumosely at end of branch/flower stalk- not a neat, confined entity.
