Virginia beach waterfront Full headed Sabal seeding

5 posts in this topic

at VA beach you usually have to go a mile inland to see good healthy full headed sabals.  I was on google street view and this palmetto is right near the water, and has a full head despite most businesses trimming the palms to look more tropical.  it is even seeding.

I also would want some seed! Good find! I found a Sabal palmetto with a pretty full head about 50 yards more inland than that one. I will see if I have a picture.

funny I didnt see this until now.  That palm has been there for quite a few years. Prob 10 or so.  I remember it when it was very stout.  there is a holiday inn next to that that always plants them. Some survive and one I know has been there for over a decade. Its very evident which one it is because its twice as tall as all of the rest around it. Its got a good 25 feet or so of trunk.
