Brahea armata
An attractive bluish palm. Plods along quite nicely, unperturbed by cold or rain. Limped through the winter of 09/10, died after the 10/11 winter (UK).
Colour for your container garden which surprisingly also survives in the ground with protection.
Brachychiton rupestris
The Queensland bottle tree. Slow and not terribly exciting.
