Will my CIDP make it?
I live in SoCal and recently transplanted an already pruned, 10ft Canary Island Date Palm. I'd done a lot of research about how to dig out the rootball, prepare the new hole, etc. We saved as much of the rootball as we could, over a foot out from the trunk all around.
I'm watering her 2x a week (soaking the area around the tree - used to water 1x day in the beginning, then every other day etc), the soil is well drained and part washed sand, she's been in the ground for 2 1/2 months and is definitely growing new fronds in the center. A couple of weeks ago, I used some slow-release palm fertilizer.
However, since a couple of weeks after the transplant, the outermost ring of fronds has died after browning. I thought, OK, some rootball was naturally a bit damaged.
Unfortunatley, the next ring of fronds has also slowly started to brown and die and I noticed that the tips of fresher fronds have also turned a bit brown. Now I'm worried that the tree might not make it.
Can the experts here take a look at these pictures and let me know if my treed is doomed? - Is there anything I can do differently to stop the browning?
To share them as babies and get comments / questions, if any... Thank you
Caryota maxima "himalaya"
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?
