  • Intro to MBC's Palm Collection
    obtained from MBC s international expeditions In 1992 the multidisciplinary design firm of Sasaki Associates Inc created a long term Master Site Plan for MBC The Plan defined long term land use access and circulation and landscape structure A major landscape project within the Plan was the creation development and planting of the Palm Walk a 13 acre area containing a quarter mile primary path numerous secondary walking and golf cart paths and major and minor vistas Ultimately the Palm Walk will contain well over 7 000 palms when fully planted In 1996 the first planting of the Palm Walk went into the ground at the Walk s entrance near Nell s House Annually approximately 500 palms are planted within the boundaries of the Walk Zombia antillarum with fruit growing at the entrance to Nell s House was planted in the 1930s MBC has some of the largest known plants of this species under cultivation During the first few planting years at MBC an average of 750 palms were planted annually throughout the property Each of those plants were grown from seeds that were wild collected fully documented and of scientific and educational value By December 31 1999 MBC had over 7 000 seeds and plants in our palm nursery and grounds collections Within the palm grounds collection during that same time MBC had over 4 000 plants representing 1 596 accessions and over 300 species T he major framework of palms for the Palm Walk was completed in 2002 Palm curator Laurie Danielson left and nursery curator Vickie Murphy planting a vining rattan palm at the base of an oak tree Rattan palms are environmentally threatened unloved spiny climbing palms that are horticultural nightmares to manage in a garden Everyone loves the beautiful rattan furniture made from its canes

  • Intro to Cycads at Montgomery Botanical Center
    tropical and subtropical regions around the globe The present distribution pattern of the eleven genera may be due in part to continental drift between 50 and 250 million years ago The pattern exemplifies the way a group of plants presumably descendent from one common ancestor underwent a series of genetic changes as a result of geographical isolation and consequential ecological differentiation to give rise to several genera Botanists have long been fascinated by this group of plants because cycads represent a living link to a prehistoric time long before the dominance of flowering plants They are intrigued by the unusual combination of ancestral derived and unique features The layman s landscape designer s and horticulturist s fascination with cycads are founded only partially on the antiquity of this plant group The size shape and symmetry of the trunks and foliage provide significant decorative touches to the landscape while the curious and often colorful cones are an added bonus In spite of the scientific and popular interest they engender cycads remain among the least understood with respect to their evolutionary relationships when compared to other seed plants Only during the last decade have intensive systematic investigations been undertaken by researchers Based
