For those in the southern clay areas that like pinnate palms, I'm hoping to bring a few Jubaea chilensis seedlings to the meeting.

Part III - Private Garden in Brunswick, GA - Post I

This was a very well maintained landscape that included an incredible variety of plants.  The first post will go through some of the overall photos of the front, sides, and back of the property.

The front:
