Eric, agree with you that sabal is mislabeled and should be bermudana. There are a lot of interesting plants at the UofA! That uresana produces tons of seed each yr and the times I've collected them I got a good 90% germination rate. I really love the couple of rows of pure filifera's near the center of the campus. Jv

Hi, Eric:
There's always a question of who has the REAL spp. My S. bermudana have longer inflorescences, reaching to the leaf tips or slightly further and longer petioles; the question is: who has the ringer? It would help to have something closer to the palm for scale.
Best Wishes,

I guess I'll have to eat my words. I stated in another thread that it was to hot in Tucson for Jubaeas. I still think they would be happier in the mountains surrounding Tucson where it's cooler. Beautiful photos Eric.

My Bermudana looks just like that one, just like it. Merills gorgeous bermudana exhibits more wilting frond tips and appears to have longer petioles. Mine, is just like that one with virtually no wilting tips. That one also looks slightly undernourished, less blue in color than mine. Palms in public places seem to get less care here. The U of A jubaea in the pic probably wont make it ultimately. Their horticultural department has a palm growing advisory on their website that refers to jubaea as a high risk, they just dont like the AZ sun.

before moving to AZ, my sister lived in El Paso, TX. While visiting one time, I found a healthy Jubaea growing there on the east side, had about 6-7ft of trunk. I have since heard there are several in El Paso.

I'm probably mistaken but I think that uresana was one that started out very silver and "turned" green as it aged. I have grown sdlgs from that palm, they do start out extremely glaucous, no way to mix them up with any other in the genus, truly distinctive. But once they go palmate they turn green until they get older. I think that is what the nice specimen at Leu did, Eric ??? Also the very large specimen residing locally at the Smith's in Maitland, I believe Gordon told me it was very silver until around 20 yrs age or so, then began to change. This probably an inherited trait, not something forced by climate. Has anyone seen very large silver uresana that retained their color? And where?

PS - luv the armata, have one in 15g pot, will plant someday. Holds a half dozen good leaves at a time. Does anyone know if that one is still going in Daytona Bch.? It was planted in the lot of a fast food joint (Checkers?), somehow it was mixed up in a delivery w/ about 10 Washingtonia but they installed it anyway. This at least a decade ago if not longer.

lotta good info and pictures here! Wish FSU would start panting more 'exotic' palms besides Butia & Florida natives.

those armatas look like they really enjoy that climate!

Dick, Did you get that PM I sent you?
