Lucas, the large palm on the far right is Livistona saribus.

It does look quite similar to chinensis, but side by side they are pretty easy to tell apart. Saribus has enormous recurved spines that make chinensis look mild.

As a result of TPPD, we don't have many Sabals at all. The one next to the Copernicia is a seedling from a tree in Jacksonville that is supposedly a hybrid between palmetto and causarium. I can attest to its rapid growth and large size but not it's genes. Other Sabals here are etonia, bermudana, variegated palmetto, minor, causarium, domengensis, "Riverside" and "Blackburniana" (in quotes since I know they aren't real names. I think thats all.

L decora is one of my favorite palms. I have a nice one in the front, but tiny pic insists on posting it sideways.
