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!!
Australian Palms In Habitat?
Do any Australians (or people who visited Australia) on the forum have any pictures of some Australian palms in habitat? I know there are scattered pictures around the forum but I thought I should make a thread specifically about them. Please post your pictures if you have any. Also, what are the cold hardiest Australian palms?
Nevada: best public palm collection?
What is the best public collection of palms in Nevada? Is it the Springs Preserve Botanical Garden?

Which public gardens in Arizona have the best palm collections -- in terms of species array, quality of care, and design? The two most well-known are the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson.
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?
