@palmsOrl and myself went over to Largo to see @SWFLchris's operation.  Chris had a large selection of palms that aren't available in your typical big box outlets.  I picked up two Carpentaria acuminata seedlings and a Cryosophila warscewiczii to add to my landscape.  @palmsOrl posted his plunder on this thread in the Discussion forums:

Some of the inventory for this nursery is listed here:

A few of my Tampa area friends like @RedRabbit and @Chatta will be happy to know that there is at least one nursery in West Central FL where they can pick up some goodies.  If you're in the Tampa region or don't mind driving over, give Chris a holler.  Highly recommended!

I will be going when I get a chance, looking forward to meeting Chris.

Nope, Chris Sexton. I am new to the Palm game.

A visit to this establishment in June provided me with 7 new palms for my collection, all of which are growing quite well in the summer heat and humidity.

Just as importantly, the service was excellent and Chris clearly knows how to run a successful business and provide excellent service while offering extremely reasonable prices.  Excellent selection too.  Thank you for everything Chris.
