I am glad you still own your house in Jacksonville. For whatever reason it seems like new owners love to get rid of beautiful plants. It always makes me sad to hear stories about that!
Wow your collection sounds incredible. It sounds like you do have the largest Bismarckia by far! I've only seen one in Gainesville (outside of home depot). It was healthy but not very large.
I didn't realize A. Cunninghmaiana stood a chance in Northern Florida. That is amazing to hear you have had so much success with them. I'm sure it's a beauty after 10 years of growing.
The Caryota sounds amazing. I can't believe it grew so much in 3 years! Sorry to hear the cold tok it out. I'd like to visit St. Augustine in a few weeks. Maybe I'll go looking for some palm tree nurseries while I am there!
I would love to check out that Acrcomia totai. Such an unusual palm!
Thanks for all the information! I am sure you'll have plenty of other great palms in your new home. It must be tough to go from a mild 9b to a zone 8, but at least it's still the south!
