Re: More Charlotte Palms
My first thought at seeing these pics is, "Wow! That's a lotta shade!" If you're happy with that shade, fantastic! And, it probably helps keep your house/property a bit cooler in summer than if you didn't have the shade trees. I bring it up because every other palm enthusiast in this message board is always crying for more sun.
My own experience is that most palms tolerate a very wide variety of sun/shade situations. But, most palms do like at least 1 or 2 hours direct sunlight per day on them if they can get it.
