Rhapidophyllum, the genus of the South's own needle palm and the the hardiest palm in the world, was the original name for the journal of the Southeastern Palm Society (SPS). This set also contains The Palm Reader, the forerunner of the book Hardy Palms for the Southeast. SPS was originally called The Southeastern Palm and Exotic Plant Society.

A Letter of Introduction was sent in 1992 or early 1993 to those interested in forming a regional society devoted to growing palms and subtropicals. We're not aware of any surviving copies.
