Just a gentle reminder to RSVP by October 1st for those going to Naples Botanical.

@RedRabbit Regarding @palmsOrl, he's a good guy to meet as he is very knowledgeable in palms and tropicals as well as temperate plants.  Definitely way past where I'll ever be in terms of total botanical knowledge.  Have met him twice in person and paid a visit to his neck of the woods to see his plants, both in pots and in the ground. 

Wish you were able to attend but understand the distance and other things going on.  Don't know if you are going to be around, but both of us might be in Tampa for a brief period for the USF Sale and also head to the Searle sale next weekend.

I know I'd like to meet the guy who's probably given me more rep on here than anyone else. lol

In all seriousness though, it would be good to meet up again. Was definitely fun meeting you and @Chatta at USF. Maybe the St. Pete plant sale in the spring would be good and a trip to Kopsick afterwards.

My new house is just a few miles down the road from you now, around Linebaugh & Countryway.

The planning for the event looks amazing I hope you get a great turnout.

I know you have the itinerary all set, but if anyone has extra time in the Naples area, you should check out the Naples Zoo. They have a great palm & plant collection that increases all the time. They also have a wonderful botanical history that is worth exploring, as it was the site of the second Nehrling estate. Darryl Windham, the Zoo's horticulture manager, was at the 'Ganza this past weekend and we talked about any possible impromptu visits during the CFP&CS meeting. He mentioned any visit during Zoo hours would be great and a tour could be possible, depending on the time. He can be contacted through the Zoo, or if you need more info send me a PM.

1590 Goodlette Rd. Naples, FL 34102

Hmm I guess my psychic powers have been improving...

I could think of other possible Palm-rich stops in the Naples area I saw on my whirlwind tour earlier in the year, but I cannot remember how to get to them. It is still a blur of leaves, crownshafts and leaf bases. I would recommend both Drew Rathburn's dental office (mentioned above as the "rare palm garden at a commercial building") and the veteran collection of John Henning's yard. Even just the part viewable from the street is worth a visit, if you can find it. And of course, it would be awesome to visit the legendary old Carpoxylon 'Sasquatch' growing along the shops of 5th Avenue. Her unique habitat can only be found by those who have been there before, so directions are always tricky, not to mention the lack of parking in the area (might be impossible on Saturday).

When we have meetings and tours spread over two days, I can usually only make one of them.  I should be able to make both days this time.

@Palmarum My plan is to stay in the area so I'll check out a few of the sites you mentioned.  Thank you for suggesting them!

@Chatta @palmsOrl Hope to see you all there!

@RedRabbit We'll miss you man... but spring isn't too far away! :)

@Palmaceae Will miss you but glad to have you back in Central FL.

For those planning on attending, I'd recommend bringing an umbrella or two.

      The CFPACS 2019 fall meeting and field trip took us to three locations in Southwest Florida.  The first stop was Naples Botanical Gardens.  The rainy weather from Nestor didn't stop those of us in attendance from having a great experience.  Plenty of umbrellas and rain gear were present as well as members from as far away as Jacksonville.
      Upon entering, you're greeted by a few Florida natives:

      Progressing further up the sidewalk gets you to this mixed planting:

      There were plenty of Thrinax radiata around dropping their white fruit.  A very positive sign for one of our native palms.

      A few Copernicia baileyana in the median against a background of Roystonea regia.


      The entrance to the Visitor Center with more Thrinax radiata standing guard.


      A rock garden inside the entrance:

      The next two photos show the types of gardens and plants present in the gardens.  Gardens with Latitude!


      You have this view after entering the metal building:

      No jungle is complete without a torrential downpour:

      Cannonballs!

      Water features add calm to the garden:

      Greeted by silk floss on the way to the cafe:

      Circle of Friends - perfect for our meeting:

      Overview
      The PalmTalk forums contain thousands of observations on the cold tolerance from a variety of locations and climates.  One of the primary difficulties in determining cold hardiness of a particular species or variety of palm is that observations vary greatly, even at the same temperature in the same location.  Therefore, hardiness can be more accurately expressed as a probability rather than in absolutes.  
      The goal of the attached list is to more accurately calculate the probability and degree of damage one could expect from a freeze on a particular species or variety of palm by consolidating the available data into one document.  This list is provided without any warranty or guarantee, expressed or implied.
      Several factors can influence the effect of a low temperature on a palm.  These include:
      Ultimate low temperature Duration of the freeze – time below 28F, time below 32F, number of days with low temperatures Weather before freeze – was it warm and sunny with plants in active growth or were the palms given time to harden off by a slower onset of below average temperatures? Advective vs. Radiational freeze? – Advective freezes are usually more damaging due to wind chill and less stratification. Overhead canopy/protective siting – Was the plant out in the open or under cover?  Are there structures or plants being used as windbreaks?  Canopy typically mitigates frost formation during a radiational freeze and windbreaks lessen the windchill effect during an advective freeze. Frost – did frost form? Wet vs. Dry – did the freeze come with wet/damp soils from a preceding rain storm or was the ground dry? Size and overall health of the plant – A healthy, mature palm is usually more likely to survive than a palm that was juvenile or unhealthy. Another consideration is how long a grower waited after the freeze to report damage.  Sometimes damage will manifest itself weeks or months after the actual freeze.  If a report comes too soon after the freeze, then the report could change.
      When possible, the list is an attempt to consolidate observations into an easily searchable list that captures as many of the factors influencing damage and survival.  Because new observations are constantly being added, this list is a perpetual work in progress.
      Credits
      The following resources were and are being used to build this list:
      http://www.trebrown.com/palms_arecaceae.php - Used to build the initial list of palms since it is fairly complete and up to date.  Observations added to the list were checked against this list.  If the check failed, it was either because the name given is a synonym or another name needed to be added to the list. http://www.theplantlist.org – Used to check for synonyms of the palm species and varieties in the Trebrown list when no match could be found.  www.palmpedia.net – Invaluable as a tool to check for synonyms and species potentially not listed by the Trebrown list.  http://www.cfpacs.org/freezes-central-florida/ - The freeze observations at this site were added to this list and are also posted in the PalmTalk forums in the Freeze Damage Data section at the following URL: https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/40159-aaa-florida-general-palm-hardiness-data/ https://www.bg-map.com/noblick.html - The two tables available here were merged and duplicates were removed before expanding the list giving each observation its own row in the table.  When the name of the palm in this list could be identified as a synonym, the name in this list was preserved in the Description field in brackets [].  There is a full list of citations at this page that includes several active forum participants. https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/ - Some of the hardiness observations throughout the forum have been loaded into this list.  This portion will always be a work in progress. 201909190030_HardinessObservationsMasterData.xlsx
