Congrats on the move, sure you won't miss Pgh? Anyhoo, not a tremendous variety of palms however it's the perfect southern mix of live oaks, camellia, gardenias, mags, palms, cycads, agave and lots of other stuff. The palms are pretty much limited to sabals of all varieties, livistonas, washies, Serenoas, all the usual cold Hardies, a few dates here and there, med fans, etc. I don't think I'm missing anything but I'm sure there is experimentation as well. It's a beautiful area, one of my favorites. Good luck and post lots o pics!
