Welcome to ray_tampa's Member Page
I’m a Florida native with an insatiable gardening fervor. Palms are my biggest passion as one trip to my home clearly reflects. I initally got the palm "bug" in 1995 after a trip to Ft. Myers (the "City of Palms"). Since then, I’ve grown in excess of 300 species, with approximately 250 species in 100 genera currently in my collection.
My other gardening interests include crotons (Codieaum variegatum) of which I have over 150 varieties, Agave (over 30 species) as well as Brugmansias and Plumerias.
I live in: US
My zone is: Z10 CenFla
My favorite forum 1 is Palms & Cycads.
