Palms of the Myrtle Beach Area

Recommended Posts

Probably the largest collective Robusta planting in the area. If i has to guess the lot had somewhere between 20 and 30 on it. All fairly tall and all look pretty healthy

Stopped by and checked out a phoenix clump @Brad Mondel turned me on to. About 9' tall, who knows how many suckers

Another stout washy. Mostly green petiole bases but you can see some Robusta purple here and there

Some more washy and a little livistona action. 

Livistona Chinensis has been slowly gaining popularity here over the past few years. Most are smaller plants about the size shown but I do know of 6 with decent trunks aside from mine.

This was from a recent climate study on the SE. I thought it was pretty interesting.

I live in the southern suburbs of DC and most of our winters are 8a winters we rarely get anything below 10f in the past decade I think new hardiness maps are coming out in 2035 so I guess we'll see where we end up.

@NC_Palm_Enthusiast definitely a couple of the largest I've seen in the area. There are some really beautiful ones on my route to work, I'll snap some pics next time I'm able.

Here are the pindos I was referring to; they are all located on Glenn's Bay Rd

Very nice :greenthumb: love the agave too. My Pindo is about the same size as those in the second picture. They look really cool once they start to develop a bare trunk

Myrtle Beach looks like Augusta ga in what it can grow, what hardiness zone is usual for a Myrtle Beach winter?

Augusta is technically a zone 8a but most winters temps usually go down to around 24 or 25 degrees, basically 9a/9b winters.

Only once or twice a decade will temps go into the lower teens.

Myrtle Beach on paper is 8b but most winters are warmer than that. I wouldn't be surprised if we get bumped up half a zone when the new designations are released. Below is a screen shot of the averages

From a distance I thought this butia had a bunch of red fruit on it. Closer inspection showed it to be vines. Really makes for a gorgeous color combo

I lived in Augusta in basically the worst few years possible. We had an ice storm (very devastating, really damaged Augusta National trees), a snow storm, and record cold. I remember standing outside reporting for the local FOX affiliate and my mouth could barely move. I believe it got down to 12 or 15, something crazy.

@DAVEinMB totally normal for someone who’s been to myrtle beach or lives there obviously. I’m blown away, we always head straight south to Florida. There’s more diversity in the pics you’ve posted than anywhere I’ve been in the pan handle of Florida. Awesome, gonna have to make a trip to MB

I've never been to the Florida panhandle but that's really surprising to hear. I moved here back in 05 but only really got interested in palms in the past 3 years or so. On the surface it seems like there's just a ton of sabals here (admittedly I've complained about the number of sabals in the past), but there actually is a decent amount of species diversity once you really start taking notice - especially for our modest 8b climate.

I'll keep adding to the thread as I find them :shaka-2:. With what I've been seeing recently at some of the nurseries the diversity may continue - fingers crossed for less winters like what we saw in 2018 moving forward.

Yeah honestly, I have a super soft spot for Panama City Beach, we usually end up there. I love palmettos, but that’s really all you’ll really see. There’s a big CIDP at an intersection west of Panama City beach on front beach road. Pier Park the outdoor mall has some different species, but honestly pales in comparison to the pics you’ve posted.

Its not really zone 9, temps dipped to around 15 degrees in the 2017-2018 winter freeze and those canaries were damaged heavily.  Charleston is a true zone 9, where Canaries survived long long term. 

I've seen old, huge CIPD's here in SE Georgia in several 8b cities ( Waycross and even as far inland as Valdosta are the first to come to mind).  They've been there for half a century or more. 

 CIPD's will make it in a mild 8b zone that is 9a almost every year- maybe not an 8b zone that is consistently 8b every year.  

 

Here are 3 on 84 in Valdosta, Ga.

Here's a CIDP in Augusta, Ga, I already posted a pic of it in my palms of augusta thread but this is a newer pic, it looks marvelous and deep green.
