I planted a couple of hundred Sabal Mexicanas about 2 years ago. All look like the one on the right, the one on the left is the exception. I've never seen Sabal that small grow above the soil.
Has anyone seen this before?
I'm sorry for the lack of pictures. I hope to put a close up on here later. I planted a 15 gal T. fortunei this spring and it has been doing well. The past 2 weeks the days have been in the 50-60s and the nights 38-50degrees. I have been noticing that the frond tips are starting to turn yellow. Should this be a concern? The new spears are still emerging and look great. We have had a couple of light frosts but I was going to hold off on my winter protection until the nights are consistently below freezing. Thanks!

In spring 2016 I planted my hardy palmtrees om open land. They had been in potts before due to the fact that we were moving and my old garden wasn't perfect for palms.
When they were planted I took a photo. And this is how small they were.
Since its dark and raining now I will take a new pic tomorrow to be able to show you how they have grown.
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.
