Very Nice Mule Palm in Orlando

Recommended Posts

Was driving through an established neighborhood in the Dr. Phillips suburb of Orlando and found this drop-dead gorgeous mule palm. One of the things I like about it is that the leaves are perfectly flat and not twisted as seen with many other mules.

Love it! I've noticed quite a few of these popping up, but this one stands out for sure.

looks like leaflets are butia dominant and trunk is nice and smooth, very nice! Mules do have lots of phenotypic variation, its like a box of chocolates.  I dont like the syagrus dominant ones as much as the butia (leaf and trunk) dominant ones.

      Are there distinguishing characteristics for this Trachy? I’ve read they have thicker trunks and bright yellow tips on their more rigid leaf segments?

      Don’t talk much about my Needle palm but it’s really grown into a nice three larger, two smaller clump of trunks...three trunks are about 12” and the other two are smaller but it’s gone from about a 3’ high by 2’ wide in-ground experiment in 2014 to a 5x 5 picture of health today...what a fantastic cold hardy palm. Aside from a bit of protection its first winter, it’s faced every winter on its own. Surprisingly, the main trunk died a couple years after planting but the suckers prospered...

      Somewhere in the middle:


      To present:




      Anyway, sitting at the base of a slight slope, it gets a fair share of runoff and I dug some depressions around it to collect even more water...it’s good for the basjoo, too...I highly recommend Needles but keep the needles in mind where pets and children are concerned...they’re vicious...but in the right zone and situated in the right place, a reliable and dependable choice for cold hardy palm growers.

      This past Sunday my husband and I visited Naples Botanical Garden for our anniversary. Among the many palms we saw was this (these?) apparent twin Sabals that are joined at an extra wide trunk ~5' tall, then separated into two separate crowns. I saw no plaque identifying what species of Sabal it (they?) are or anything about them. I am not sure of the species but the sight was so unusual I took the following photos. I have seen photos of solitary Sabals that split into two crowns due to damage but they have normal solitary trunks up to the split. This palm has an extra wide trunk with a "valley" between two halves all the way up to where the crowns separate, as if two palms grew together to form one. Very odd. Anyone else seen this?

      There is a perimeter of fronds on my Trachy that have very pronounced yellow segment tips...the newer fronds above this line are clear of any of it. The lower fronds have always had a slight case of it but it’s more pronounced on this ring of fronds...it’s gotten two Palmgain feedings this season...wouldn’t concern me except it’s so pronounced but only occupies about two inches of the segment edge...
