November Update

Recommended Posts

Well with frosts and freezes finally in the forecast, it’s time to mulch and wrap these palms up. But before I do, a little update on their growth this year.

I’m honestly surprised that they’re still green. I did plant them too close together and a little close to the foundation (lesson for next time). But I’m happy with their growth! Just got to get them through the winter.

Sabal Louisiana’s

Finally starting to exit the strap leaf stage (yaaaaasss). They’re moderate in growth, but I’m content with that. I’m excited for their future growth!

Trachycarpus Fortunei ‘Bulgaria’

These guys are tough after coming back after a weed whacking incident. One had some leaf shrinkage, but it’s starting to recover so I’m not worried. These are next to the southern end of the house so I have confidence in their survival (unless we have another polar vortex *shudders*)

Sabal Palmetto ‘Mocksville’

These pictures don’t do it justice, but this thing is healthy as a duck. It’s becoming palmate and I’m happy!

Sabal Uresana 

Man this thing is slow. But this is more of an experiment than anything.  Just to see what it can handle!

Love these cold-hardy palm gardens in the mid-Atlantic states!

Looks good Nathan!  I like the bluish tint of your Sabal 'Louisiana' in the second photo but I'd say that it and the Sabal palmetto 'Mocksville' are planted way too close to the house since they will get big.  Same for the S. uresana but not sure it will survive to get very large in your area.  Your Trachycarpus won't get a very large crown of leaves so probably isn't a problem planted that close to the house.  Juvenile Sabals are difficult to transplant but you'll have a better chance of survival at that small size.

Wishing you good luck, Nathan. My son lives in Ellicott City so I follow the weather up there. I have S. palmetto Mocksville too and it's coming along well. Supposedly, it is quite cold hardy compared to S. palmetto so a good experiment for you.

      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?

      Hi everyone,
        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!

      Hi.
      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.

      An Unflinching Look, a documentary photo series by Benjamin Dimmitt, is set in Florida and focuses its gaze on rising sea levels.
