    • PRIVATE MESSAGING - IMPORTANT NOTICE   01/02/2017

      There has been some confusion regarding the Messaging System on PalmTalk - and what is private and what is posted publicly. I've been asked to explain the two. There are two forms of messages - what I will call "Private Messages" which are Private, and "Activity Messages" which are public. A Private Message is designated with an envelope icon. It is available at the top of every page (click it and use "Compose New"). It is also accessible by hovering over a User's name or Avatar and clicking the envelope icon. Or it is also available on a User's Profile Page - at the top - again, with the envelope icon. Anywhere you see this envelope icon, you can click it and send a Private Message. An "Activity Message" is public. These are the "What's on your Mind" and "Leave a Message on [User X's] Feed" boxes where you can leave a public message directly as a Status Update (on your Profile or Main PT Page) or on a User's Profile Page - which updates his Status Update and also posts on PT's Main Status Update Page. These are "Activities" and labeled as such on the Profile Pages.  What is confusing is that both options (Private and Activity) are available on a User's Profile Page.  Just remember, that if you want to send a Private Message, use the envelope icon link - wherever you see it. That will get you to the Private Messaging Center. Any other "Status Update," like "What's on your Mind," or "Leave a Message on [so-and-so's] Feed," is public. I would make it less confusing if I could, but I can't.

Sabal palmetto 'Cape Hatteras' and S. minor 'Tamaulipas'

6 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm looking for seeds of Sabal palmetto 'Cape Hatteras' and Sabal minor 'Tamaulipas'.

Of course I will pay a good price!

Thanks!

Vincent

Sorry Vincent, there is no such thing as Sabal palmetto  'Cape Hatteras' . There is a Sabal minor  'Cape Hatteras' . Also a little further south, in the state of North Carolina, on Bald Head Island, there are native Sabal palmetto. These are the northern most native S. palmetto and so probably the most cold hardy although they grow a little slower than S. palmetto in Florida.. I do not have seeds of either of those and probably will not for a very long time, but if I happen to go to those areas I will collect some for you.  A couple of links below may put you in contact with someone who already grows these plants.

Thank you Jeff for your response! I was thinking there is an isolated population of S. palmetto existing near Cape Hatteras refering to this link:

https://www.na.fs.fed.us/pubs/silvics_manual/volume_2/sabal/palmetto.htm  [...A disjunct population has been reported at Cape Hatteras, NC...] 

This website gives the following book as the souce of the disjunct S. palmetto population at Cape Hatteras:

Little, Elbert L., Jr. 1979. Checklist of United States trees (native and naturalized). U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Handbook 541. Washington, DC. 375 p.

But probably this population does not exist any longer as this handbook is quite old (1979)!? What do you think?

Anyway I would also be very interested to get some seed of the Sabal palmetto near Bald Head Island.

And thanks for the links, I will try to contact them.

Thanks for the link Vincent. This Sabal Palmetto 'Cape Hatteras' population does not grow there anymore. Some people think that the large S. minor that do grow there, were mistaken for palmetto.  It is possible that someone, somewhere has trees from seeds that were collected there long ago but who knows. There are S. palmetto there now but they are dug by the thousands in Florida and shipped and planted in landscapes here in North Carolina. Bald Head Island is the only place native North Carolina S. palmetto grow now.
