Hi Hetty, Is this where your banner photo came from? What a great collection.

Yes it is. It is at a house near where I live; they were planted not too long ago. Almost nobody has those Cycads anymore because of the Asian Cycad scale which wiped out many in this area.

Thanks Hetty, Hopefully someone warned those folks about the scale. I imagine plants that size are $$$?

I admit what enthralled me about your banner photo was the mystery and evoking an imagination gone wild. I could SEE giant Cycads with critters from Jurassic Park beneath.

Those people bought a double lot, razed what was on it and built a huge house with a guest house on it, then proceeded to landscape it at no expenses spared. I am sure the price of those Sagos were but a bit of pocket change for them. Having said that, they have landscapers taking care of the property so hopefully they know what they are doing!
