Syagrus species/hybrids x3 for ID

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

I planted the following three Syagrus species and/or hybrids on my garden lot way back around 2013. I grew most if not all of them from seeds. At one time they were tagged but no longer. I believe one of them (#3) may be S. picrophylla but need confirmation. Nos. 1 & 2 are true unknowns. All of them are smaller and much slower growing than common queens. Nor have they been affected by the fursiarum wilt that killed off all my queens and mules in 2014/15. None of them has flowered yet. They are easy-growing palms that take my climate and soil in stride.

Syagrus ID #1

Syagrus ID #3: Is this S. picrophylla? It is shorter and has a denser, more upright crown than the first two palms

      When I got the aloe which is flowering in the photo below, the name was on the outside of the 1 gallon black container.  I have since lost the container after planting it up once, and then finally putting it in the ground a couple of years ago.  I'm hoping that someone will quickly recognize the species between the leaf structure and the inflorescence.

      Among the very large Sabals inhabiting Sabal Row on the east side of the yard is one that outshines the rest. Even though it is several years younger than the original inhabitants but is just as tall and big around, with the largest leaves. It carries these leaves on massive, upright green petioles. Its stem has long papery ligules unlike any of the other Sabals. My husband is no Sabal afficionado but he really likes this palm. I grew it from seeds I obtained as "Sabal mauritiiformis" way back around 2009/10 but two visiting PTers whose opinions I highly value have told me it is not that species. But no one has been able  to confirm what species it is. Can someone here tell me?
      I took the following photos this evening and I can take more tomorrow when lighting is better. It is hard to encompass the full scope of this Sabal

      A ground cover that pops up occasionally in my yard.  I think the previous owner had some growing somewhere which I removed many years ago, but it keeps popping up in places.  Any ideas?
