There will be a meeting of the Southeastern Palm Society (affiliated with the International Palm Society) at Aquinas High School in Augusta, GA on Saturday, 21 October, at 10:00am until noon or whenever people want to leave. The school has mature Sabal palmetto, etonia, minor, tamaulipas, rosei, uresana, louisiana, mexicana, causiarum, 'Riverside', and x texensis. There are also Brahea armata, decumbens, moorei, duclcis x brandgeii; Butia eriospatha, odorata, purpurescens, odorata and yatay. Other featured palms include several horticultural varieties of Chamaerops, Guihaia argyrata, Serenoa repens, Rhapidophyllum and Nannorrhops. There are large Washingtonia robusta and filibusta.
Visitors can view 12 varieties of Cycads, 22 cold-hardy citrus, numerous hollies, bamboos, camellias, sandhills and xeric plants and other ornamentals.
The palms should be loaded with seeds, so it will be a good time to collect a few for your own yard.
All are welcome!
