Here’s a young Bismarckia in zone 9a that came from especially cold-hardy parents. Couldn’t resist trying to grow a few of these marginal beauties.. In the background is a medium size Jubaea x Butia F1. They all vary a little.
Anyone interested in partnering/purchasing on this 4.5 acre (buildable) palm nursery can PM me. Larger JxB F1s have begun flowering.

I’m currently living in the UK, but will be emigrating to Australia within the next 2-3 months.
I’m looking for pure seeds of Allagoptera, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea sunkha, Parajubaea cocoides, and hybrid seeds (in any combination) of Allagoptera, Butia, Jubaea, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea, and Syagrus to take with me, or contacts in Australia who have mature specimens of the above.
Appreciate most palm enthusiasts who produce F1 hybrids often won’t offer seeds as it makes more sense to sell the seedlings/plants, but I’m also open to F2’s, F3’s etc.
Picked up these 2 15g sabals in need of repotting over the weekend. Keeping the top of saxophone heal above the ground surface is what’s important correct?
Also so what happens to that heal with mature palms? I’ve never noticed it on mature trees.
I thought it may be cool to post photos of the garden as it appears this winter. Please posts pics of your own garden as well. I am in North Georgia, a cold zone 8a.
While browsing the web I happened across an interesting website:
The page features many cold hardy palms being grown in North GA. The winter page states the palms were covered when the palms were younger but once larger receive no winter protection.
Does anyone know who has grown these palms or have any more information on the palms and how they are nowadays?
