NEW FACEBOOK PAGE 11/11/2015The IPS is happy to announce our new Facebook presence. The old International Palm Society presence was a Facebook "Page". This did not allow members or visitors to interact or post photos. Because Facebook does not allow the migration of a "Page" to a "Group", we decided to make a new group and grow it. It is located here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/InternationalPalmSociety/ So if you are a Facebook user, please help us grow our new group by inviting friends and posting your palm tree photos and experiences there.

Who am I? I am from Acrocomia!
By Keith in SoJax
Anyone feel comfortable speculating on the species. It's obviously a big ole spiny Acrocromia.

Warm November pics
By Peter Timmermans
November has been exceptionally warm this year. Average temperature (maandgemiddelde) in Nov till now 5 degrees higher than normal. Some autumn pics of my backyard, most of them of the first week of Nov.
Container Ranch Dypsis?
I've got a small Lutey I picked up at Lowe's last year (at least that's what it says on the label, I'm dubious). But I keep seeing all these fabulous species you southern-types are flaunting and I'm jealous.
What would be some unique and/or beautiful examples of the Dypsis clan that would look good in an indoor setting. Adult height can be more than 8 feet if it's a slow grower, I can always donate to one of the indoor gardens in 5 or 10 years.
For that matter, what funky-cool indoor palms of any genus would you suggest to catch the eye?
This is pretty much the only sabal I have not seen pictures of or described in detail anywhere. For such a seemingly obscure species, I was surprised to see it on the list of palms for North Florida by UF with the following information. Sounds like it may be a nice one.
"Stout, heavy trunk with very large leaves. Thrives on sandy soil." 60 feet tall. 7b-11 taking down to 7 degrees: from Dominican Republic
Anyone have experience with this one? pictures?
