Re: Some of the more unusual palms growing in Gainesville
Thanks Lucas! I love that microclimate (and it's right outside City hall so it's got great public exposure too). St. Augustine had a coconut palm growing for a few years. I think if a coconut could grow anywhere in Gainesville, it would be that spot!
I'm glad your microspadix were not hurt by the cold. They are beautiful!! Thank you for the offer, I may take you up on it. Sometimes the nurseries here carry them, but I haven't seen one in a while. I wish they were more common (the botanical garden here has a bunch, but I have yet to see one in a public spot!).
