Sunquat/Lemonquat Variegated New Branch

Recommended Posts

Fusca

Here is my sunquat/lemonquat that has recently added a new branch which is variegated.  It showed virtually no damage after our ultimate low of 20º F this past January.  I grew it from seed and the mother plant showed no variegation.  Is this common?  I have had other plants purchased as variegated plants (such as Chinese privet - Ligustrum sinense 'Variegata') which often has normal new growth as they tend to revert back but I've never seen the opposite before.

Not common, but it does happen. You could take a few buds from that stick when it hardens off & graft them to make new variegated plants.

Thanks Todd,

I hadn't thought about grafting it - that's an interesting idea!  I've never tried that before, but I guess I'll do some research on this.  Hope your citrus yields are good this year in spite of the damage.  I'm still going to have to wait another year or two before I'll get any fruit from any of my 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.

      Hello all,
      While browsing the web I happened across an interesting website:
      http://home.windstream.net/hbrahea333/
      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?
       
      Thanks!

      A few months ago I posted a topic about my bodacious Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant I originally purchased from well-regarded Plant Delights Nursery in NC, so I know it is the real thing. See link below to view that topic:
      http://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/58162-sabal-minor-emerald-isle-giant-wseeds-any-interest/
       
      At the time I posted that topic the palm was loaded with green seeds and I asked if anyone would be interested in them later. I got quite a few responses so I let the seeds ripen and now have quite a few harvested and ready for new homes.
      Normally, I sell seeds only within the continental US but I had responses from several European PTers so I will make an exception. But - if you live in Europe (or Australia) be aware that US postage for even a small 1 oz. package of seeds is astronomical, more than the cost of the seeds themselves. Also understand that I must fill out a US Customs form online with the US Gov't declaring the contents of any pkg and I cannot/will not lie. Finally, know the customs of your own country: some countries are easygoing about palm seeds from FL, others will seize seeds, destroy them, even hold them for ransom. If your customs seizes your seeds, I can't replace them or refund your money. 
      All that said, please see summary below:
      Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant Seeds: 50 for $10.00
      Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant Seeds: 100 for $15.00
      Shipping in padded envelope: $4.00 in continental US (Sabal seeds illegal in HI)
      International shipping in padded envelope: $15.00 for up to 100 seeds with US Customs declaration
      Please PM me if you are interested. Thanks and regards
      See photos below of seeds and mother palm.

      This palm was tucked back into the corner of my yard behind my large S. causiarum and never got the glory it should have received. It is a really cold hardy and pretty palm. I wish I had several more planted but just didn't realize how nice they are until owning this one. Anyway here is a closeup of the trunk.,  its got a redish color and the fronds self clean nicely.
