May Update (Post-2020 Winter)

Recommended Posts

LasPalmerasDeMaryland

Welp, the weather is warm and I’m finally going to tour my palms after this winter. This winter was very warm for Maryland Standards. The lowest temperature I can recall is 19°F. Which is good for my palms’ first winter to help acclimate them.

Both of my Sabal Louisiana’s are doing great! They’re starting to get palmate leaves and I hope for a more palm-like appearance this year!

My Sabal Minor ‘McCurtain’ is looking rough for some reason. This must just be a very weak specimen. Hopefully it’ll recover.

My Sabal Uresana came through with no damage.

My Sabal Palmetto ‘Mocksville’ did beautifully. I know it’s an unprecedented warm winter but I hope I can keep it alive for a few years.

This T. Fortunei ‘Bulgaria’ is still recovering from a weed whacking incident but it’s still green and no cold damage.

This T. Fortunei ‘Bulgária’ is my favorite right now! It’s already pushing out new fronds and looks marvelous!

My Musa Basjoo is coming back to life. Though I think the main stalks rotted under the mulch. But a smaller pup front the year before is returning and has been growing since early April. 
meh gardening is a learning process

8B palms

If you have the space you should certainly try a needle palm, when they get going they are pretty impressive.

All look great like I said above except that minor.  I would check the spear and pour hydrogen peroxide on that one.  They were all kinda small and you might check the spear on all.

I'm surprised the Sabal Minor McCurtain got damaged...  Everything else looks great though! Nice collection you have there. :greenthumb:

When did you put them in the ground? The spring, summer, or fall of last year? Freshly planted Sabals can take a while to get going, in my experience.

      I have 3 unusual Sabal seedlings for sale as a lot. The first one in a 4" pot lost its tag a while back. I suspect it may be a Sabal minor Blountstown Dwarf by its size and coloration BUT I don't know for sure. It is 2-3 years old and still strap leaf but is ready to go into a larger pot or the ground.
      The second two seedlings are from seeds I collected in the spring of 2019 when I visited Rotary Park in far south Cape Coral. I walked along the park nature trail, then saw some strange looking trunked Sabals in the wetlands off the trail. They were large and quite old and their leaves did not look like typical wild Sabal palmetto. Leaves were unusually flat and pinnae cut very shallowly. I saw a number of these palms in that vicinity - a whole population. Rotary Park has been around for decades but I wondered if these old Sabals were a remnant of a separate species planted by man or natural occurences. As Sabal seeds ripen in late fall here, most of these palms were bare of seeds, but I managed to pluck some leftovers. I also took a raft of photos to post here but no one offered any ideas what these unknown Sabals may be. Anyway, 3 of the seeds germinated for me last year so I am keeping one plant and selling the other two.
      Mystery Sabal Seedlings x3: $15.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail          No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
      TOTAL DUE = $25.00
      Payment via Paypal
      PM me if you are interested

      Here are some Sabals with massive crowns. They are at the University of Texas at Austin campus.
      Wanna guess what kind they are?

      After all of these years I finally got to buy a house with over half an acre and now almost all of the palms are planted.
      I am in zone 8a South Carolina above the fall line!
      It is a work in progress so don't judge.

      I have some seeds from a Texas Sabal for free or if you want to trade for other cold hardy seeds for 8b.
      I also have some pure filifera and dactylifera seeds.

      These are from the Sabal Palm Sanctuary near Brownsville TX.
