    "Eleanor Roosevelt" is in all the larger landscape nurseries. There's one community around the corner from me that must have bought 50 or 60 of them in all sizes from three- to fifteen-gallon.

    Scott,

    The 5 most common where? If in South Florida, I would agree on Petra, Mammey and Gold Dust. But I would say there are far more General Paget around and then maybe Andreanum. Don't see much Red Excurrens or Curley Boy.

    1st Petra, 2nd Mammie, 3rd General Padget, 4th Gold Dust and 5th Rheedii are the most common in the Gables area.

    6th Franklin Roosevelt, 7th Eleanor Roosevelt. (honorable mention)

    ;)
