    Jubaea x butia ?

    It was Phil Bergman (Jungle Music), who had brought t light in a video the connection of zig zagging with hybridism. Personally I very much doubt about it.
  3. They are for outside. Either eventually selling, or donating them to the future Sacramento Botanical Garden when we are finally up and running, which will probably be about five years or so. Bruce

    Queen palms indoors

    I grew my queen palm for 2 (maybe 3?) years in a pot/ trash can and brought it indoors over the winter before planting it in the ground. During the first winter it went inside the house (east facing room). The second winter it was placed inside an unheated garage with high ceilings because it was too large to bring inside the house; there was no direct light. I kept it on the dry side while indoors. It was indoors from about late November/ early December to mid-March.

    Maybe I won't kill this green chamaerops

    I love Chamaerops humilis! If I had the room, I would probably grow an entire Chamaerops forest it I could lol. Otherwise Good luck with your new palm!

    Sabal minor Seed Question

    I agree with everyone. Sabal minor doesn't ripen here until late October/early November.

    Virginia Beach Volenteer Sabal palmetto

    Very nice! Thank you for sharing. The Sabal palmetto seem to be flowering in many of your photos, which means many more naturalized seedlings

    Jubaea x butia ?

    I thought zig zag was a sign of a young jubaea?

    Virginia Beach Volenteer Sabal palmetto

    I'm not sure exactly how cold it gets here during the Winter. Also, there are tons of other palms here that I am not taking pictures of, since this thread is about Sabal palmetto in the area. There are lots of healthy Butia with full crowns that I have seen there last year as well. There are also Windmills, which look fine, of course, but the ones right along the shore are beat up by the wind, no abnormal brown fronds or anything. Most palmettos can survive here just fine if cared for properly before they get established, there are some really nice ones in some neighborhoods inland from the beach.

    Dang, Tony, that's a fantastic-looking palm. Was it 5 Gallon when you bought it in 2015?

    Virginia Beach Volenteer Sabal palmetto

    It does look like some of them have been there for a while. From Wunderground.com, it looks like the Norfolk area got hit with 10F in January 2018. VA Beach may have been stayed warmer... or not. Any verification that these have been hit with temperatures below 10F? Zone 8a (10F-15F) is generally thought to be the limit for Sabal palmetto. Exceptionally hardy populations should be able to tolerate lower than 10F.

    Advice For Moving Palms

    Don't give up on your Sylvester. I moved two to my new house about a year ago and ended up hacking the roots of one more than I would have liked to. It browned up and had some bad spears, but like others have mentioned, I began to give it lots of water and it is now healthy.

    Are these Butia?

    In their favored arid climates, they are hardier than the mid-to-upper teens that tend to be their limit here in Florida and in other humid areas.
  20. Hi all. below I've included picture of these brown spots and tips that have been appearing on my Phoenix roebelenii. I've been trying to water it at proper intervals and it gets adequate sun, but there are these brown spots appearing on the leaves and tips. I'm sure this question has been asked many many times but I figured you experts are the best place to go for information how to combat this. Are there any fertilizers I should be using perhaps. Thanks in advance for the responses

    Growth speed Butia yatay x Jubea vs Jubea x Butia yatay

    I received a Yatay x Jubea from Patric in 2015. It has been a fast grower and very cold hardy. It survived a winter low of 13F unprotected. To me and many others the palm seems to favor the Jubea parent. Stiff leaves large trunk. It’s a beautiful palm. Does anyone else have one if these hybrids that ghry can share a pic with?

    What is your current yard temperature?

    75F rainy and tornados/flash flooding.

    Virginia Beach Volenteer Sabal palmetto

    I understand the Florida vs elsewhere palmetto debate. But genetics are genetics and Virginia Beach is a colder area than bald head and thus my hypothesis that these palmettos must have truly hardy genes to thrive there.

    Are these Butia?

    Well that makes all the dates I’ve germinated much more practical. Or maybe less, if that means they might grow too big to bring indoors!
