Not many palms aren't growing somewhere in Orlando these days.

Since no one has posted pictures yet I'll bite. Be forwarded though mine are probably nothing special compared to other palm tree photos on this site.

A Syagrus Romanzoffiana  (Queen Palm) which I salvaged out of an abandoned lot near Lakeland. It didn't look to good when I first planted it, but since then has took off like a rocket.

A cluster of Adonidia I got from Home Depot. While of decent size when I got them I've been battling to keep these from getting too yellow.

A set of three Chamaedorea cataractarum I used to replace a dead bush on the front of my house and form a privacy hedge. 

And finally my Hyophorbe Lagenicaulis I'm sure some of you remember from my redneck greenhouse thread.

Hmm... Palms more of the "exotic" type that do well there?

    • Virginia Washingtonia robusta Fighting For Life
      By PalmTreeDude
      After a terrible winter, my Washingtonia robusta got beat up badly. Then at the very beginning of Spring, the spears pulled and I thought all hope was lost. But I checked it a few days ago and to my surprise I found this little bit of green. Today I inspected it more and found a new "stalk" coming up. It does not look that much like a spear, but at the top a little green frond shows. So I looked deeper with a flashlight and saw more life deeper down, but also bugs! I put some hydrogen peroxide down it (I have not done this for two weeks until now) and am hoping to kill off any pathogens that may harm it's new growth. Now, I will just have to wait and see what happens. It may end up just dying, or it may come back. In the pictures the green does not show well, but it is there and in person there is more than you can see in the pictures. 

    • Do Florida Grown Palms Do Well In The Carolinas?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Since a lot of palms are grown in Florida and shipped up north, do palms grown in Florida do well in the Carolinas? For example, if a palm (let's say Butia, that has experience nothing below 30 degrees F) is shipped from Florida to somewhere like Myrtle Beach, will it end up burning in the winters? 
    • cocos australis? On a Butia?
      By PalmTreeDude
      My Pindo palm I got from Lowes says "cocos australis." What does this mean? Is it even a thing? I looked it up and some Butias came up and other palms came up. 


    • looking for variegated palms other than Raphis and caryota
      By palmboi

       I have a friend in Tampa who is looking for other variegated palms to buy for himself, preferably north of Miami.
       he already has rhapis and fishtail so  different species would be nice.
