Need Help With Palm Photos

coconut_palm(9B/10A)March 11, 2012

For those of you living in Texas, I am working on a book on landscaping with palms in Texas, and I need some help with some palm photos. I have photos of some of the palms for my book, but I need you to help me with others. I may be traveling to the Rio Grande Valley next week, so if you could tell me where I could find the following palms to photograph myself or if you have any photos of these growing in Texas, I would appreciate it. They have to be healthy and recognizable and growing outdoors in Texas. If you submit any photos to me, pleae include the city where it is growing, and please include the variety if it is a species with more than one variety:

Palmate Palms:

Cabbage Palm (Sabal palmetto)

I'm not from Texas, but am interested in finding out which palms you discover growing in northern Texas. Keep us updated.
