There are 27 different species of palm tree that occur in the wild in Florida. 15 are not native to Florida, while 12 are. Of those 12, 6 are protected by state law.

As for the number of species cultivated in Florida (but not known to occur in the wild), the number is probably in the 3-digit category (hundreds)
