We then went to Pullen Park.  There were a lot of palms there . 

Here are some large Needles

Thanks for your post. You found lots of cool palms there in Raleigh. Hunting for palms in areas where they are not common is always a lot of fun. It's a little like a treasure hunt.

Thanks for sharing! I have personally visited most of the palms in your photos. 

Next time you're in the area, check out the botanical gardens at the universities. All the gardens have great palm collections.
