That Florida torreya looks good. It is great to see people growing such a critically endangered plant. How long have they had it? I've tried twice with torreya here, but was unsuccessful. Leu Gardens in Orlando has a couple of them which seem to do well so it must be something that I'm doing wrong.
I am growing the also endangered Taxus floridana which does well. Strangely, it turns yellowish in winter like some conifers up North do.
It's good that that you gave them hardy palms so they won't get disappointed by damaged palms during the winter.
