Pink & Green bromeliad (Aechmea sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, or shade; Mature Size: 2-3ft wide x 1.5ft tall
This plant takes full sun in mild, coastal climates but prefers half-day sun in hotter inland climates.  It's bright pink and green variegated leaves are hard to beat and it doesn't get too large making it ideal for smaller planters or decorative pots.  The bloom is a small cluster of white flower buds with purple flowers on the tips.
Large Orange bromeliad (Aechmea sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, or half-day sun; Mature Size: 3-4ft wide x 3ft tall
The best cultivar of Aechmea blanchetiana- the leaves are slender and tend to be stiff and upright while maintaining a deep orange color in hot full sun, filtered sun, and even morning or afternoon sun!
Large Purple bromeliad (Aechmea sp.)
Half-day sun, filtered sun, or shade; Mature Size: 3-4ft wide x 3ft tall
An exciting new 2014 hybrid of ours with vivid purple foliage.  It produces a yellow and orange bloom that lasts for 2-3 months. 
Silver Imperial bromeliad (Alcantarea sp.)
Full sun, half-day sun, filtered sun, or shade; Mature size: 5ft wide x 4ft tall
Leaves are heavily coated with white powder (trichomes) to give them a bright silver appearance.  The plant produces dozens of thin leaves which are soft to the touch and have no teeth.  This species prefers to be kept dry and can handle quite a bit of frost. 
Large Red bromeliad (Androlepis sp.)
Full sun, half-day sun, or filtered sun; Mature Size: 4-5ft wide x 4ft tall
A GREAT LANDSCAPE PLANT!  Cold-tolerant to the high 20's F.
A native to Guatemala, this is a tried-and-true plant for full, blistering sun to filtered sun. The leaves do have some small teeth.  The bloom is milky white and lasts a couple months.  This plant works great in the landscape or as a potted plant.
Small Variegated bromeliad- Sun (Neoregelia sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, half-day sun, shade, or indoors; Mature size: 1ft wide x 6in tall
These look great in rows or planted together in small colonies.  The variegation shows up good in any landscape and the tips get red as the plant matures.  These can adapt to full sun in coastal areas.  Neoregelia sp. produce a small bloom within the center cup. 
Small Pink bromeliad (Neoregelia sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, or half-day sun; Mature size: 1.5ft wide x 6in tall
The color of this beautiful bromeliad has been described as "coral pink".  It handles full, blistering, all-day sun with no problem.  The vivid color really stands out and can be seen from quite a distance! 
Giant Dioon cycad (Dioon sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, half-day sun, or shade; Mature size: 6ft wide x 6ft tall
This is a great alternative to the common Sago Palm which has issues with Asian Scale.  The Dioon cycad is extremely drought and cold tolerant and requires little to no fertilizer or maintenance.  It is a great compliment to any tropical, sub-tropical, or Mediterranean themed garden. 

Variegated False Agave (Furcraea sp.)
Full sun, filtered sun, half-day sun, or shade; Mature size: 6ft wide x 5-6ft tall
A great compliment to any tropical or Mediterranean landscape.  This particular variety has no spines on its tips making it a safe alternative to traditional Agave plants.

Adonidia merrillii variegated- Variegated Christmas Palm A popluar palm throught SE Asia, this variety does well in Tropical and Sub-tropical climates, or can be grown in a greenhouse.  It does very well as an indoor plant if watered properly and placed next to a bright window.  Zones 10b-11
Adonidia x Veitchia; xAdoveitchia F1 (California Christmas Palm)This should be a great substitute for the standard Christmas palm because it has thicker, greener leaves, more coloring in the trunk and crown shaft, and seems to be faster growing.  We believe it will be a great palm for Mediterranean climates such as North FL, Southern CA, and maybe LA, TX, and AZ!
Areca catechu 'Dwarf'
This palm is highly sought after by collectors world-wide.  It eventually develops a trunk and will produce seed.  It likes moderate fertilizer and can take cool temps down to about 40 deg F before getting leaf burn.  We find that it is actually more cold-tolerant than the standard Areca catechu.

Beccariophoenix alfredii- Cold Hardy Coconut Palm
Withstands temps down to 25F; single trunk; mature height 50ft
An exciting introduction in recent years, this palm may eventually replace the common Coconut Palm in landscape applications!  It produces small seeds that are only 1 inch in diameter, is fairly fast growing, tolerates drought and low humidity, and is every bit as beautiful as a Coconut Palm.  Discovered on the high central plateau of Madagascar growing along rocky streams, this palm has been imported into the United States and grown by only a select few nurseries.  It is great for Florida, Hawaii, southern CA, and mild climates in AZ, NV, TX, LA, NC, SC, VA, and GA. 
Butia capitata x Syagrus romanzoffiana; xButiagrus Nabonnandii F1 (Mule Palm)
One of the first palm tree hybrids, the Mule Palm is a hybrid between the common Pindo Palm (Butia capitata) and Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana).  It is fast-growing, extremely drought-tolerant, and bears a slight resemblance to the common Coconut Palm.  It tolerates hard freezes down to 15 deg F.  We have 12ft specimens available by special order (above).
Caryota mitis variegata- Variegated Fishtail Palm
Although this palm is fairly common in Asia, it is difficult to find variegated plants here in the United States.  It is a fast grower, can grow indoors or outdoors, and is the only variegated palm that we know of that thrives in full sun, even when young.  Our plants have stable variegation that is yellow-to-white in color. 
Chamaedorea microspadix variegata- Variegated Bamboo Palm
This small clustering palm makes a great container and clusters once older.  Most of the stems come up variegated as the main stem clusters.  It's variegation is yellow in new leaves, then turning white on older leaves.  It is very easy to grow indoors or out.  Zones 9b-11
Cycas revoluta variegata- Variegated Sago Palm
A beautiful dual-colored cycad that deserves to be in any collector's garden.  We constantly treat our plants for Asian Scale so they are healthy and certified for shipment.  The pups (offsets) typically come up variegated and are usually easy to separate from the mother plant. 
Dypsis leptocheilos x decaryi F1 (TriBear Palm; Red Triangle Palm)
We engineer this species by cross-pollinating a Teddy Bear Palm and a Triangle Palm.  The resulting hybrid is fast-growing, drought-tolerant, handles full sun or shade, requires little to no fertilizer, and handles light frosts.
Dypsis lutescens x decaryi F1 (Golden Triangle Palm)
After seeing pictures of this intriguing hybrid, we started on a mission to develop it ourselves.  We now have our first batch of seed off a robust, solitary Golden Cane Palm mother and the seeds appear promising. *Pictures courtesy of Hery, Reunion Island, Indian Ocean
Dypsis lutescens 'Thai Dwarf'
This is a daintly clustering palm from Thailand.  Its leaves are kind of wispy and it produces many canes.  It will eventually produce a small trunk after decades of growth as it is fairly slow.  The canes can be divided easily and planted in separate pots!  Allow the soil to dry out in between waterings.  Makes a great potted plant or plant directly into the ground in a smaller garden or an area where it won't get run over by foot traffic.  May grow slightly larger in the ground.  Grows in full sun or shade in most Tropical, Sub-Tropical, and Mediterranean climates.  Zones 10a-11.
Dypsis lutescens 'Vietnam Dwarf'
A mutant Golden Cane Palm (Areca Palm) out of Vietnam.  This one holds dark green upright leaves and has beautiful gold petioles.  It stays about 16 inches tall as long as you separate the canes (which is easy to do).  Makes a great potted plant or plant directly into the ground in a smaller garden or an area where it won't get run over by foot traffic.  May grow slightly larger in the ground.  Soil prefers to be dry.  Grows in full sun or shade in most Tropical, Sub-Tropical, and Mediterranean climates.  Zones 10a-11.
    Dypsis pembana x decaryi F1 (TriBana Palm; White Trangle Hybrid)
This is a brand new palm species that we developed in 2013 at our South Florida nursery.  The mother is a Dypsis pembana from the Pemba Island chain off the east coast of Africa.  This is the fastest and toughest clumping Dypsis!  The father is a Triangle Palm (Dypsis decaryi).  The resulting hybrid should look much like the infamous "White Triangle" palm.  Our seedlings are showing extremely fast growth rates.


Dypsis pembana x leptocheilos F1 (TeddyBana Palm; Turquoise Teddy Bear Hybrid)
Another new hybrid species developed by our own hybridization department.  It should it should turn out similar in appearance to the pictures above (which are actually Dypsis cabadae x leptocheilos).  Our goal with this hybrid was to achieve the vigorous growth rate and clustering nature of the Pemba Palm combined with the fuzzy red neck and large fronds of the Teddy Bear Palm.  SEEDS GERMINATING NOW  *Photos courtesy of Facebook and
Rhapis excelsa 'Amazon'
A beautiful cultivar of variegated Rhapis, we have not found this one to be growing anywhere else.  We have not had a proper ID on it, so for now it is simply called 'Amazon'.  Yellow stripes and long leaflets make it a beautiful palm and its offsets almost always come out variegated.
Rhapis excelsa ASANOTAKARA- Morning Treasure Palm
We are excited to introduce this brand new variegated Rhapis cultivar!  Just arrived for Spring 2014- it is a dwarf variety with leaves divided in only 2-3 leaflets.  It has vivid yellow variegation that has proved stable in 4 out of 5 offsets throughout three generations!  Prefers filitered sun.  Shipped in the container.
Rhapis excelsa HANEINOASA- Prosperous Morning Palm
Another new variegated Rhapis cultivar for Spring 2014.  This one is a larger variety with beautiful fanned leaflets and pale yellow variegation.  It reproduces readily and prefers filitered to half-day sun.  Default shipping is bare-root due to larger size.  Please email us to make other arrangements.
Rhapis excelsa KINPONNISHIKI
One of the more yellowish cultivars due to its high number of very fine white stripes.  The variegation can only actually be seen up close- but it's there!  This is a true dwarf variety and a fairly robust grower that has done well for us.  It only produces about one offset per year.  Able to handle shade to light filtered sun in Zones 9a-11.  
Rhapis excelsa KOBAN- Koban's Lady Palm
While this palm is similar to the common Lady Palm, it differs in having wider leaflets which are kind of "lobey".  Each frond is divided only 2-4 times.  It is a fairly slow grower but one of the toughest Lady Palms in the world- surviving drought and very low light with no problem. This plant grows to about 2-3 feet in time.  Able to handle shade to mostly full sun in Zones 9a-11.
Rhapis excelsa 'KOBANNISHIKI'
One of the only Rhapis cultivars that develops white patches in the middle of each new leaf that opens.  The white patches slowly turn green with time.  This is truly a dwarf palm, but a vigorous grower.  It can stay in a container its whole life too. 
Rhapis excelsa "LIME GREEN"
Another unknown or unregistered cultivar that we named 'Lime Green' due to its mostly light-green leaves, most of which have one or two thin green stripes.  The leaves split into only 2 or 3 leaflets.  All offsets come out true to the mother, so it is very stable.  This one is also fairly dwarf, so it will need to be kept in a container and not in the landscape. 
Rhapis excelsa 'TASHANISHIKI'
This is a new introduction!  A vigorous grower with lots of variegation. 
Rhapis excelsa TAIHEIDEN- The King of Green Kannonchiku
This palm is called The King because it produces huge, thick green leaves and a thick trunk.  It is a slow grower, but well worth the wait.  Each leaf can get up to 12-14 inches wide once mature and its trunk is about 1 inch in diameter.  Grows in full sun or shade and indoors of course! 
 Rhapis sp. 'Super Dwarf'
We consider this to be the smallest palm in the world!  Its max height is about 6 inches, but it can "mound up" to about 10 inches if allowed to grow for a while.  The canes seem to grow on top of each other.  It will produce small flower clusters but will never set seed because there is only one gender in cultivation!  Makes a perfect potted plant but DOES NOT do well planted in the ground here in Florida.  Prefers filtered sun or shade and is probably adaptable to Zones 9b-11.
Sabal palmetto 'Lisa'
Withstands temps down to 15F; solitary; mature height 35ft
Syagrus schizophylla x romanzoffiana F1; Syagrus xMontgomeryana- Coco Queen Hybrid
This hybrid originated in South Florida.  We create our plants through cross-pollination and grow them in limited quantities.  It is called a Coco Queen because it comes from two Queen Palm parents- the Arikury Palm (Syagrus schizophylla) and the common Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana)- and thus looks like a Coconut Palm with a straight trunk.  It is very fast growing, drought-tolerant, and handles frost down to about 25 deg F.  
Wodyetia x Carpentaria; xWodpentaria F1 (Woodchuck Palm)
This is a hybrid between the classic Foxtail Palm and the Carpentaria Palm from Australia.  Only a few mature specimens are known to exist in Thailand, which probably exist from accidental cross-pollination by nature.  Our hybrids were produced within a controlled environment and should possess fast growth and lots of style!  Very rare!  Probably a good grower for FL, SoCal, and HI but is still fairly new so not much feedback has been reported yet.  *Picture courtesy of Zeeth
Wodyetia x Veitchia; Wodveitchia F1 (Foxy Lady Palm Green & Variegated)
Considered by some to be the fastest palm tree- the Foxy Lady originated in Australia and has been grown in the US for about 15 years.  In Hawaii, these can grow 5 feet of clear trunk per year!  Our plants are guaranteed to be hybrids, so don't get fooled by the eBay vendors out there.  These grow in full sun or shade and handle frost down to 28 deg F.  The green form performs well in full sun or shade while the variegated form prefers filtered sun or shade.  This hybrid is sterile and will not produce seed.     NOTE: Our green varieties may produce one or two small variegation stripes on one leaf from time to time.  It is difficult for us to guarantee the tree will be 100% green for its entire life.
