Wednesday morning storm and deluge-over 3inches of rain

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.

Got some rain, but not anywhere near the deluge you got.

Gorgeous day in Tampa. It's hard to believe the weather was so different on the east coast.

I wouldn’t doubt we received 3-4” downtown yesterday.  We needed it and all the vegetation looks so perked up and healthy today.

It was a much needed soaking.

      Our summer meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 12th, 2021.  Current plans are a visit to Leu Gardens in the morning and a lunch and nursery visit in the afternoon.  More details will be made available as they are finalized.

      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.

      New guy here.
      Do any of my fellow central Floridians have any suggestions for good palm tree nurseries in and around Orlando? Somewhere with a solid selection and perhaps some rare or z10 palms. 
      Lukas Nursery is nice, albeit a bit overpriced. Apparently MB Palms is the go-to? 
      (Selfishly, the primary reason I ask... I’m looking for decent sized A. Cunninghamiana, B. Alfredi, and A. Engleri) BUT, I’m always keeping an eye out for new places to waste an afternoon and a few bucks. 
      Thanks in advance.

      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.
