Can you help ID this palm seedling? (pics)

Wanted to plant this in my yard, but I'm not sure what it is. I got it at a local nursery in Florida. The reddish stems look interesting a different from the palms I'm familiar with. I realize this may be just a characteristic of a young seedling. Thanks for any help.

Thanks. I posted the pic on another forum, since I wasn't getting a response, and the consensus was Dictyosperma album (hurricane palm).
