Jubaea looks ok not so the triple headed Yucca to the side

I have this Nolina at our place looks like the middle died out on this one though

It shows if in the right micro climate plants will survive Cordyline Torbay Dazzler

Sadly the beach was closed though at just 1c that day there would not have been many takers

Though Akamba is now more of a venue it has apparently sold quite well in the garden nursery dept maybe some new interesting plants will appear next year.

Nice pics Kev. The Yucca in pic 4 looks like queretaroensis. Very rare to see trunked specimens of that size now. The Nolina looks nice as well. Looks to be longifolia. Must pay a trip up there. Was the reptile house free to view as I'm a pensioner now with limited funds :wink:
