Purchased hybrid/mule palms from Jungle Music.
PROS: Friendly, responsive owner. Plant quarantine, health, phytosanitary certificate is provided (extra cost). Small bonus plant enclosed. Well packaged and shipped in original pots.
CONS: One palm arrived mislabeled (wrong kind), another palm was not labeled at all and is probably a wrong kind as well. Invoice shows the right palms shipped, but the physical label in the pot of the palm says it's a different kind! Prices are way higher than anywhere else. Shipping costs are also much higher than usual. Both prices and shipping are as high as three times than elsewhere.

Probably the largest selection of palms in SoCal, but JDAndersen is close. Staff is helpful, and usually provides good advice. Also, plants are generally in good health. The website is fantastic, and has a lot of good information about growing palms.
I do have a couple minor complaints though. The first is that MOST of the sizes/species listed on the website are NOT in stock, at least for the less common palms; and sometimes it's difficult to find the palm you want even if they do have it in stock. Also, prices tend to be higher than average. Finally, I've had problems with the salesperson giving me one price when we do find the palm, then a different price is given at the register.
