Re: Thoughts on Make Palms Great Again...?
FWIW, think the key thing to learn is to consider gardening with "what does well". whether it's natives, or palms, or any other kind of plant ultimately it often comes down to what you and your climate can grow them well---if you can't then the most beautiful and "exotic" of plants will become a source of lots of time and effort to keep it going and ultimately perhaps disappointment when the plant dies or forever looks like it should.
