The Southeastern Palm Society is a friendly and respected source of advice on how to grow hardy palms, cycads, citrus and many other subtropical plants in the southeastern United States north of Florida.

SPS meetings are held quarterly at notable public and private gardens. Our get-togethers are informal, with opportunities to share our common experiences. Depending on the season, meetings feature an expert speaker, plant auction or plant sale. Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend. 

Publications are based on the real-life experiences of members, and include:

  • The journal Southeastern Palms

  • The books Hardy Palms for the Southeast and Hardy Citrus for Southeast

  • A quarterly newsletter.

SPS is a chapter of the renowned International Palm Society.
