Sabinaria magnifica in Central Florida, some cold hardiness

Recommended Posts

Eric in Orlando

This Sabinaria magnifica was planted out last spring here at Leu Gardens. I planted it in one of the warmest microclimates in the Garden. It has good overhead tree canopy protection and also wind protection. So far after this winter's freeze it is showing no damage. We had a low of about 28-29F here but this location was probably about 4-5 degrees warmer. A Cyrtostachys elegans x renda is growing next to it and looks good too.

Good to know. I saw speculation that it should be relatively sensitive, but you never know until you see the actual reports.

Another couple of weeks gone by and it still looks good, no delayed cold damage yet.

I have a sneaking suspicion this palm will grow in SoCal in the right microclimate. Great to hear it his those lows in FL.

      We obtained Tahina spectabilis seed from the first batch that was offered and received them in April 2008, We have planted 7 Tahina palms at Leu Gardens from this seed batch. Almost all of them were planted near other Madagascar natives.

      I wanted to post a photo of my Sabinaria magnifica Palm that survived despite not being protected and being in an open area of my yard when the temperature dropped to 35 degrees . Its the baby palm in the bottom right of the photo.
