I was lucky enough to escape the unusually warm winter in NYC to an even warmer south Florida in January! Here are photos taken! I got to tour with the Palm Beach Palm and Cycad Society one day as well! My photos include some of the highlights with a link to the rest of the photos at the bottom. 

For starters, here is the largest Tahina spectabilis I have ever seen!

Beautiful Syagrus sancona

Probably the meanest palm out there: Astrocaryum murumuru

Wow! and thanks, Kyle. That Tahina is scary big - mine will look like that if I live long enough. Would love to have a bunch of Pelagodoxa seeds.

I love those Cyrtostachys hybrids! I hope we start seeing these become more common.

I have several of those Cyrtostachys hybrids if they are the ones Jeff Marcus was selling. Boy I hope they look like that someday.

Kyle,you knocked it out of the park! Sensational garden walk with expert identification of some very rare and unknown specimens.

I see you made it to the Four Arts as well as Ann Norton and some ancient specimens. The Ceiba pentandra next to Mr. Flagler is a sight to behold. You captured the Tabebuias as they are going off presently.

Your “remaining photos” in your presentation included the largest and most spectacular Cocothrinax borhidiana that I have ever seen in Florida. It was located in Loxahatchee! Amazing and thank you!

Very nice photos, Kyle.  In the link to your additional photos, I see a few cityscape pictures.  Are those all photos of West Palm Beach, FL? ... or Fort Lauderdale?  ...or somewhere else?

Thank you everyone! 

 

Bubba, I had very good tour guides familiar with the area, so they showed me all of the great places! I haven't spend much time up there, so I was shocked by how many amazing specimens of plants there were. I'm glad you appreciated the photos! 

 

SandyLoam, the skyline photo is actually Miami, FL. I didn't have enough photos to constitute another photo album, so I just lumped them into that album. Miami, FL has grown immensely in a short period of time!

Excellent photos of excellent palms Kyle!

I think the palm you labelled a Cyphophoenix elegans may be C.nucele

Daryl
