One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Okay so I stopped to talk to this guy who was admiring the Needle Palm, Rhapidophyllum hystrix in China Valley
Now there's a man who's dedicated to palms. We talked for some time about hardy palms, hardy tropicals, and the fanaticism that attend the fringe elements of those hobbies. Then he rolled up his sleeve. I conceded without a fight.
