Be careful at the Searle sale. They are great people and have incredible palms/plants.
The only problem is that most of it won't grow here in Brevard.

I got some great advice 20 years ago from the great "Obi-Wan- Harry Palms"


He said, "When it comes growing a particular palm, don't take any advice from anyone that lives South of you."

For example, take the extreme case, somebody looking to grow a particular palm in Jacksonville, should not take palm growing advice from somebody in Miami.

Also, the official USDA Zones 8, 9, 10 are a very loose guide that don't take micro climates into account, like Merritt Island.

Searle has incredible stuff and it does really well......down in South West Ranches.

Just my $0.02

Well, i have a 2nd house in Sunrise, fl with a blank canvas, and also looking for croton. I'm only looking for understory. I have learned my lesson to not even try the true tropicals like red sealing wax palms, but sometimes you can find one that will grow on the side of an oak tree successfully in the frozen tundra of Merritt Island.

My schedule stopped me from going to Searle Bro sale today, but my son is there and just facetimed me thru the whole nursery. First time plant shopping w/FT! Got a Licauala grandis and some other ornamentals.

I went to the Melb sale when they first opened up. Bought a few plants. Got extremely crowded as I was leaving. They going to sell out of plants it was so crowded. Good for the plant sale!

Plant sales suck. Somebody demands to go to plant sales rather than paddle and surf.
