Dypsis pusilla new red leaf
I went outdoors to take photos today and saw one of my Dypsis pusilla is putting up a new red leaf. This delightful little palm is closely related to Dypsis fibrosa and D. utilis but is much smaller.
Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant w/seeds: any interest?
About 4-5 years ago I got this Sabal minor from Plant Delights in NC. S. minor Emerald Isle Giant is a variant of Sabal minor whose ancestors were rescued from a construction site near Emerald Isle, NC. It is notable for growing very large (up to 7' tall and 10' wide) with exceptionally blue 5' wide leaves. It is slow growing even compared to other Sabals. My mother palm is flowering and setting lots of seeds. Is there any interest for germinating and growing this palm on the forum? If so, I will clean them when ripe and post them for for sale. This is a very beautiful Sabal and quite cold hardy (see photos below). The rescued ancestors have been growing in Raleigh, NC.
