Was driving through an established neighborhood in the Dr. Phillips suburb of Orlando and found this drop-dead gorgeous mule palm. One of the things I like about it is that the leaves are perfectly flat and not twisted as seen with many other mules.
I'm not at the house at the moment but my neighbor sent me this photo of my mule palm that has been in the ground about a year. I guess it had blown over in the wind. He staked it for me.
I noticed, the last time I was there and working in the yard, that it was wobbly. It's in the shade in the early morning but gets full sun for the rest of the day. Are they known for having weak root systems? Any suggestions?
For sale is the total 2019 crop from my Sabal bermudana: 60+ seeds. I grew my mother palm from seeds I received from a resident of Bermuda in 2008. This rare, very slow growing native of Bermuda is endangered on that tiny island by development. It is shorter - up to 20' tall - and stockier than S. palmetto but just as cold hardy. It prefers sun and heat but unlike most Sabals, can prosper in areas with cooler summers, i.e., CA, PNW.
Sabal bermudana: 60+ seeds @ $15.00 for the lot. One Lot Only
Shipping: $5.00 in padded envelope. No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
Total = $20.00
Payment via Paypal. PM me if you are interested
My Needle Palm went from smaller fronds to big fronds over the summer, look at the size of them, and they'll get much bigger! I had to hold the camera way up to get the whole frond in the picture!
New York City is a high end zone 7b, cold hardy palms are very rare, but they’re there if you know where to look. Tropical palms, however, are all over the place during the warmer months.

It’s flowering, hopefully it seeds so I can grab them all lol, anyone want a Manhattan Minor?
