Palm tree info

I have a palm tree in Northwest Florida that seems to be blooming. I've 
never seen a palm blossom before. The palm is squatty, with fronds that 
grow up and out like an umbrella. The blossom comes from a leaf-like 
growth that opens to reveal a spindly, spikey looking branch with small 
nut-like buds. Its yellow and red. My questions are...what kind of palm...
and can the buds be propogated to produce palm plants. Thanks for any 
help you can provide.
