I love Zamia floridana they are such a cool species. I made the mistake of buying Zamia furfuracea instead thinking they'd be similar in hardiness but I have a feeling I'm going to have a lot of burn on it during the wintertime up here. But the Z. floridanas seem bulletproof. They might be hardier than sagos and are definitely easier to find a spot in the landscape for.
I hadn't heard of Palatka Giant. That sounds like a great hardy alternative to Z. Furfuracea.
