Stan could the first one not be Bismarckia nobilis?

Yes it is. I always forget that last photo posted becomes first photo seen on the topic. Somebody said T.martianus on hardy palm board. Could be.

I'm agree with B. nobilis for thé first one. Have you a photo where we can see the trunk for the other ? But yes, why not T. martianus.

That's a 6' foot fence Luc. So,it has some trunk. Its much bulkier now then last I saw- look at those petioles! HUGE! I might try again. At least potted for a while. He has 2 maybe 3 in this yard plus a Mountain palms and various interesting things.

That Trachycarpus is pretty nice. I really like seeing orchids on palms. The orchids really stand out. The problem with palms though is that they grow soooooo slow. It takes way too long for a palm to get large enough to attach an orchid to. And it's not like you can grow palms from cuttings. Somebody needs to create the palm version of Aloe Hercules.

It depends. Hardy palms can grow 3-6' a year. I think I attached a Ripsalis to my Trachy..it looks good. But,has it attached? I don't know for sure- too much fiber. I have a Laelyia on my King palm. But,a tree is much more easier.
Plant one Mexican fan palm and you will have another new 3 or 4' of planting room every year for the next 50 years :D Those boots would hold a mini world of Orchids.
