Just a plug for Tipuana tipu I have one in 9a that proved to be very hardy even as a small tree. I only had minor dieback at temps that killed queen palms (2010) and it was only a sapling at that time.

Nice selection, thanks for posting Eric!

 It has been a really busy week so I can't commit to going just yet. I'm definitely interested in a couple of the trees on the list though.

      Licuala longipes or L. spinosa? It was acquired in 2004 at a South FL sale. Licuala longipes is supposed to be solitaire and trunkless. I have seen a couple others in FL also marked as L. longipes that look like this. Did some misidentified seed get distributed years ago? This is growing at Leu Gardens.

      I came across a possible Sabal etonia x palmetto hybrid in the Seminole State Forest northwest of Orlando . It was growing among other mature Sabal etonia, Serenoa repens and juvenile Sabal palmetto on top of a hill, in sand scrub forest. The hill slopes sharply to Sulphur Run, a creek that is fed by multiple springs. On the slope and near the creek it is moist to wet dense forest habitat with lots of old, tall Sabal palmetto and thick masses of juvenile S. palmetto.

      Stromanthe jacquinii is currently flowering at Leu Gardens. It is a tall growing Maranataceae that grows 5-7ft tall and is native from Nicaragua to Ecuador. It forms dense clumps and is very Heliconia-like. Its a great tropical plant for shady locations.

      Did anyone else in Central Florida get the deluge of rain Wed. morning? I came to work at Leu Garden at around 7:45am and it was storming and it rained very hard for over an hour. We got 3.15 inches here at the Garden. I live in Altamonte Springs about 12 miles north and hardly any rain.
