Anyone know of coconut palms for sale between Orlando & Lake City

va_canuck(8A)May 18, 2010

I'm in Orlando until Friday, and I will be driving back to Lake City before I pick up some things to take home. Does anyone know where I can get a coconut palm in Orlando, Ocala, Gainesville, or Lake City? I've called all over and can't find any.

Jacksonville is also a potential choice. I might even be desperate enough to run out to Tampa one night this week if I can get one there.

What size? I see large ones at many nurseries around. 1 right by my house, Royal Mulch and Landscape, just got five 20 footers. Also sell smaller potted ones but they got severely damaged in the freeze. Another place is Pleasant Acres which is on the east side of Orlando. John Deere Landscape also tends to stock them.

Most Orlando area Wal Mart, HD, and Lowes commonly have small ones if that's what you're looking for.

I have hit every Home Depot, Lowes, and Wal Mart in Orlando I can find. Nobody has any that I can find. If you know of a specific one that would be cool.

As for what size - 6 foot max. It needs to fit in my car.

The Home Depot on the south side of Lakeland had 4 of them in 3 gallon pots. The price was $15.
