Closest I can grow to coryphia.
I’m still not sure if this is sabal causiarum or domingensis. There seems to be some confusion on which one has liguels. But none the less I love this huge Sabal. It’s finally going vertical after walking about 5 feet from its original planting spot. I planted it 7 years ago for my son (the monkey in it). It’s been a blast watching them both grow. Today he said “ I want to climb my palm” so up he went.
Sabal Palmetto Seedling Alive!
So most of the Sabal palmetto seedlings that came up last Summer are alive with the tops burned. But some are still completely green. Only a few were lost. We had a crazy long period of below freezing here this winter. It is currently in the 70s. Here are some. I did absolutly nothing with these protection wise.
Sabal palmetto (Bald Head Island), Sabal palmetto (Trifton Hardy) and Sabal sp. "Birimingham" seeds
I'm looking for seeds of some coldhardy Sabal palmetto provenances e.g. from Bald Head Island or Trifton Hardy.
I'm as well interested in seeds of Sabal sp. "Birmingham".
Of course I will pay a good price :).
Is this a palmetto, seems too small for a palmetto, im not sure ... .
Fort Worth Botanical Gardens Palms - January 2018
Took a stroll through the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens on January 14, 2018 and captured a few pictures of the palms I found there. I thought it was nice to see these palms doing so well in this climate. I think those are Sabal palms wrapped in burlap in the first photo. Some Sabal minor, Needle Palms, and European Fan Palms there as well.
