SFPS 2023 Palm Show & Sale
November 4 – 5 @ Fairchild Garden
The 39th Fall Show & Sale of the South Florida Palm Society is almost upon us. Be sure to carve out time on the weekend of November 4-5 to attend this long-running event. Growers with years of experience will be offering hundreds of species of palms and an excellent selection of cycads.
One of the popular features of the sale is the distribution of free palm seeds. They’re harvested shortly before the weekend and made available while quantities last. Among the species offered this year will be Coccothrinax readii, Acrocomia crispa, Carpoxylon macrospermum, and, for the first time, Allagoptera caudescens and even small quantities of Orania palindan.
The sale is at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm both days. We look forward to seeing you there! Tickets are available and can be purchased at the Fairchild website.
