Welcome steve, nice sargentii(buccaneer) and spindle palm!  That sargentii probably took quite a while to grow to that size.

Yeah, buncha slow pokes.   I bought the Pritchardia Thurstonia (Hildibrand?) at Fairchild in the mid-90's.   Really slow but steady.   Taraw palms and Copernecia Hospita chugging along..  Cabada not bothered by temp in 40's..

Good palm selection Steve.  I believe I have driven past your garden a number of times.  Are you right off Alt19?

Do you add amendments to your soil when you plant?

Great Palms. But your hospita is a copernicia prunifera

Actually, the whole yard is an "amendment".. I compost everything.  It floods (saltwater) pretty routine, and killed just about anything but crabgrass, so  I've been elevating the whole yard w/ truckloads of (free!) mulch and then then sand/dirt on top.   Keep it kinda wet and it decomposes; turns to really rich organic soil.    Gets those big 'ol nightcrawler worms.   Fruit trees 'n palms grow like crazy..

I have chickens and a pair of turkeys. They're great company while I'm out gardening...only down side is they never leave the mulch where it needs to be :rant:

You might be right; or a hybrid.   I've got a few copernecia I'm sure are prunifera, but this one guy in photo is completely subterranian, much stiffer arms & fronds.   Color's blue/gray...   Got seeds from Giselle Kopsick Palmeriam in St. Pete years ago, when it used to be okay to collect seeds...

Either way, it's a beauty. But I'm looking at the teeth. They're one of the meanest. Check out this bloodsoaked specimen that was impaled in my arm.

Yep that isnt a hospita.  It looks like a c. prunifera or a c. alba blue form.  I can't tell the difference in those two till they trunk.  Prunifera has this swirl pattern to the old leafbases, alba doesnt.
