I guess this is a Corypha umbraculifera- at relatives place in Homestead. Planted in the early 2000's, had to be removed last year- had gotten way too big for the space it was in. Was taken out whole and transplanted somewhere else.

Reportedly in Wilma, the huge leaves were especially susceptible to tattering in the wind, and in the 2010 FL freeze, I was told it did get burned a little.

Earliest picture I have of it from mid-2003 can be seen on the far left:

July 2013 not too long before it's removal- was getting absolutely massive. At this point they had already dug around the rootball and braced it ready for removal and transplant.

In post #5, is that a two headed Hyphane palm off to the right?

Yes, it is a gingerbread. It has been there for years and grown VERY SLOWLY. Probably just that particular location. There is a nice, tall, branching one at the Miami Zoo as well as Fairchild.

Thank you. Another palm you don't see many around, and for no good reason.

Jeff, I suspect their slow growth may be the reason. I planted one 22 years ago that was dispatched by an idiot with a truck. Due to its slow rate of growth, I never replaced it.

Saw and have watched a very large Talipot planted unwittingly near a small house. It is now becoming gigantic and overpowers the house. The owner seems oblivious.
