Sabal minor 'Congaree' Look So Cool!

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

The Sabal minor population in and around Congaree National Park, which is just Southeast of Columbia, South Carolina, look really cool. They have basically 360° fronds that stick kind of upright. Look at this observation of them that I saw on iNaturalist in their habitat. I would recommend looking around the observation map as well, you can literally see the different ecotypes around the Southeast.

Given their provenance is near Colombia, SC - at least down to single digits.

I agree with Flow. Someone in the area needs to collect seeds of this variety so it can be cultivated for other palm lovers.

I'm not far from there. 

 

I also go by I native stand on the way to work. I should take a look at those. They're good sized I know that. When the leaves drop they stand out off in the woods.

Any seeds or small seedlings?

Not sure. Always just admired them from afar. If it's not a washout this weekend I'll try to check them out.

      I have a group of 12 seedlings from this rare, endangered blue Sabal minor from Emerald Isle, NC. Refer to topic below for info about this Sabal variety:

      Seedlings for sale were germinated from the last of the 2018 crop of seeds and are the only ones I have. I haven't harvested and tested this year's crop yet. If you collect varieties of Sabal minor don't let this beautiful palm get away.
      Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant Seedlings: 12 = $20.00 for the lot.
      Shipping = $10.00  Seedlings will be sent without pots and soil with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil
      Total - $30.00
      Payment via Paypal
      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI. PM me if you are interested

      Tell me how hardy Sabal Blackburn? There is very little information about him. Which one of you is growing?

      I potted these sabals about a month ago and they don't seem to be doing too well. I ordered all three of them online from a palm nursery in Florida and they did arrive with a few wilting/discolored fronds. What worries me is that there has been little to no improvement in their condition since. I water them once every 1-2 days, make sure they get plenty of sun, and I potted them in well draining, palm specific soil. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but any tips would be greatly appreciated. (BTW: I plan to overwinter them inside in pots and then plant them in the ground next spring if they're still alive)
      Here's a few pictures of them:
