Post Syagrus in Brest is blooming
the northermost Syagrus on this planet is blooming. It took 20 years to do! All the pics except the first one were taken today.

EDIT I forgot to add that it is growing in the city of Brest!

That's outstanding, Yves. Thanks for sharing.

I don't recall ever seeing a Syagrus in France (and I'm from the south of France) so it's quite amazing to see one in Brest.

Hi Romain,
I know at least one in Biarritz, and they are quite common on the french riviera between Nice and Menton especially since all the Phœnix are killed by the red palm weevil. The cities replace them by Syagrus as they seem immune, well not for long.

Salut:
Good achievement there!
You are at 48ºN latitude, right?
What´s you climate like? I mean, min. max. temp. sunshine hours, warmest ever, coldest ever, rainfall, etc.
Is this reliable?

Looks great. Actually the green droopy fronds look more like in habitat then they do here in California.
