Re: Thrinax brailiensis. Hardy to Z8. Brahea 'Clara'
the "spiny-fiber palm" from brazil is an interesting and potentially (relatively) hardy palm that is VERY hard to find in my experience. IMHO, brahea "clara" (which may or may not be a selection or hybrid of b. armata) is lovely with a bit of the look of and perhaps a somewhat better adaptation to cooler winters than a bismarkia palm.
