Re: SE Tennessee palms
Good to see you still posting!
In my part of the country, it's so amazing what is possible just 200 miles south of me. There (Virginia Beach), there are Palmettos, Butias, Serenoas, Med Fans, the isolated Washy or two, Live Oaks, and the northernmost population of Spanish Moss. Where I live, half of those plants aren't possible without serious protection schemes. And the other half are "tryable" as experiments in a hidden back yard or test plot where fatalities aren't such an eyesore.
Just 200 little miles...
