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

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.
Sabal minor growing out in the open in Tompkins Square Park in Manhattan:
It’s flowering, hopefully it seeds so I can grab them all lol, anyone want a Manhattan Minor?
I have a gigantic, potted Zamia picta/variegata with extreme variegation that I got from Christian Faulkner as a tiny seedling 9-10 years ago. This species of Zamia is the only naturally variegated one. It is now an adult female taller than I am that produced seeds earlier this year. I assumed the seeds were infertile but did not notice that I had a male potted Zamia hybrid (loddigesii? x ??) sitting right next to it that I'd bought at a Palm Beach sale some years back. Lo, about a month ago I noticed that tiny variegated Zamia seedlings were popping up next to my mother cycad. I potted up 8 of them to find a new home and am selling them as a lot. See summary below

This little guy is growing slowly but surely. The spear in the middle is starting to make itself more prominent.
