One of my suggestions is going to be McCarty Hall up in Gainesville, FL:

https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/topic/41798-mccarty-hall-palm-garden-at-the-university-of-florida-update-2008-2014-some-before-and-after-pics/

If they continue to improve it, Carrollwood Village Park in Tampa might be worth a visit at some point as well.

A site in Sanford that might be worth a visit is the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  Haven't been there yet myself.

An update for the April 6th CFPACS meeting from the hosts:

Lutz, Florida is north of Tampa in Pasco County.  It has been about 6 years since  we last met at the Langley Garden.

We have added some new planting beds with more cycads and other tropicals. The garden has over 300 palms and cycads to date and has been established for 35 years. 

We are planning on planting a Zamia variegata that we got from our late friend and longtime editor John Kennedy, in remembrance of him.  What a wonderful  person  he was.  

We are also going to be giving away at least 5 palms and cycads as door prizes.

A general meet and greet, followed by a partial tour of the garden, then lunch and a follow up tour to finish the garden.  Afterwards we will have the auction and general sale as usual. 

We really hope you are able to make it to the meeting.

- Ted and Nancy Langley

I haven't seen Ted's place since Palmfest in September 2001.  I'm really looking forward to it.

This will be my first time there since I missed the meeting 6 years ago.  Judging by the number of RSVPs, both familiar faces and new ones, this is going to be a really good meeting.  Can't wait.

It was great to see so many people at a very well attended meeting with great food and a wonderful tour.  The sales, raffles, and auction gave everyone ample opportunity to fill out their gardens with palms, cycads, orchids, and bromeliads.   

A special shout out to PalmTalk members @Plantking165 @Satakentian @howfam @SW_FL_Palms @SubTropicRay @cycadjungle @Keith N Tampa (ex SoJax) @chuckg @D. Morrowii @Reeverse @PalmJuan @Phil Stager and @kinzyjr for making the meeting fun, entertaining, and informative.  If we missed you, feel free to chime in.

The Summer meeting is being planned now.  As the details get nailed down, we'll send out an email communication to the membership.

This particular Aechmea is a PIA to get to root to trees like that, for me….
