Help with ID's
Hello from London. I had a good clearout of my greenhouse this week and have some plants which I don't have ID's for. Hope some of you can help.
This one has a label in it saying 'Sabal texana' which I'm not sure is even a recognised species. I've had a look and S. texensis is described as having green leaves but this has very grey/glaucous leaves even at a young age. It could be plain old Sabal minor I guess but perhaps it could be a S. brazoria? Probably too early to tell as I know with Sabals it's the flowers that really help with identification. I think that's a long way off though!!
Citrus Greening News
Found this update in the local paper along with a short clip:
Hope they get us some good news soon. With all the talk about weevils, greening, Fusarium, ganoderma, lethal yellowing, and TPPD, we could all use a little good news.
Which palm is hardier, Palmetto or Bermudana?
By Palm crazy
People have tried both here and Bermudana always outlives the Palmetto in the long run. But neither is bulletproof here. Anyone else grows the sabal bermudana in z8 with some success? Have a picture?
Incorrect info given on Dora Canal tour ( Tavares Florida )
By Bill H2DB
I just watched a short show on Ch 24 WUCF PBS Orlando/Daytona etc about the Tavares area .
On the boat tour along the Dora Canal , the guide pointed out the " State tree " and correctly called it a Sabal palm , but
then continued with the statement that it is the only palm native to Florida , and that one way or another , all of the other
palms that are seen in the state , were brought here by ( I assume he meant ) Europeans .
Maybe a local there can correct the guy .
Looking to purchase...
I am looking to buy a large Chambeyronia var. Watermelon or hookeri.
Also interested in purchasing a large Dypsis Leptocheilos x Dypsis Decaryi (Tri-Bear).
Let me know if anyone has these for purchase in any size (the larger the better).
