Phoenix canariensis with Yellow leaves
I would like to understand why the intermediate leaves of my Phoenix canariensis are becoming yellow. I have it for 4 years in my garden 3 km from Ligurian Sea in the Mediterranean and I treat it monthly with specific products against rincoforus like Runner and Nuprid directly in the ground and on the core. Could the reason be some virus or micro fungus or even lack of chimicals in the ground ?
Thank you in advance
Where Are Phoenix canariensis Most Northern(ly) Found?
Where is the Phoenix canariensis most northern(ly) found in the USA? I saw some in Charleston, S.C. and that is as far north (on the east coast) I have evern seen them, what about the west coast? And has anyone ever seen one more north than Charleston on the east coast? I have been wondering where these things start to come up.
Sabal Uresana SE Hardiness
So I am planning to plant a group of 8 7G sabal uresana's up here in Upstate SC. They will be planted in a linear line about 6-7ft space in between. I just wanted to ask you guys if this palm would be suitable. Is it cold hardy enough? Can it take the cold wet winters? Anyone around my area grow this palm?
Other palm options would be:
- Sabal Palmetto
- Sabal Birmingham
- Sabal Brazoriensis
Any other option that is hardy for my area?
Dwarf Canary Island Date Palm at the Koreshan
By Loxahatchee Adam
I was at the Koreshan State Historic Site this past weekend and came across this:
5 months after the red weevil
This canariensis had a big red weevil infection.
Every leaves was eaten and part of the trunk.
I cut every leaves and i was cleaning the hole on the trunk. It was full of fat baby weevils.
I was macking two treatments with insecticide and 5 months after, here is the result.
This palm is sixty km inland. In a very dry place.
It don't has extra irrigation and the miniums this winter, arrives at -7°.
This is a survivor!
