Established Washingtonia in North Carolina

Found this established washy on google maps growing in Shallotte, NC. Is it filibusta or pure robusta? I'm still not very good at differing between the two when they're this size.  Anyway, streetview is from 2013,  wonder what it looks like today, or if it even survived this long.

Here's a better view:

Just down the street someone has two criss crossed sabals planted which I thought was interesting, also wish I could see what they look like now.

Here's the link if anyone else wants to look around at the local specimens:

Looks like an older robusta (I think) in downtown Shallotte that finally bit the dust:

Neither one of those washys are alive unfortunately. The one on Mintz looks to have died some time between 2013-14, and the one on Bluff dr. in 2013. I can tell from the satellite images in Google Earth. But there is an established washy that looks to still be alive in Fayetteville.

Wow looks that one used to be a double, been there at least 13 years, nice find. :greenthumb:

Here's a really nice one closer to Holden Beach (pretty sure it's filibusta)

Oh wow, that Fayetteville one looks awesome. That's a filibusta right? As for the other ones, I wonder if it was the humidity or cold that killed them?

Looks like a pretty big washy growing back there behind the two smaller ones, wonder if it's still alive- can't really tell from satellite:

Nice finds!  i don't like the crossed palmettos.  A curved trunk maybe but not that.

Yeah I’m not too fond of them either, but I’d certainly like to see what they look like now

Theres a surprising amount of larger Filibusta on Ocracoke. 

These I found on the old 2007 streetview and looked up the adresses and found they were still around.

Theres others, but I couldnt verify if they were still around.

At least one big one on hatteras too.

and of course the one I saw in Avon, probably the most northern large unprotected one on the east coast.20190921_133310_HDR(1).thumb.jpg.cd51804e3adf11aec34bdf6f26f2afcf.jpg

I’ll be in Emerald Isle in July, I’ll make sure to drive by and see if it’s still alive. I’ll also take some pictures of any out of the ordinary palms I see while there and post them here.

Wow those look awesome. I remember seeing that last one on a previous post. Check out this one way far inland in Fayetteville, NC:

hot damn! thats a big boy.  looking great after that winter.  that one in Avon i saw fared pretty well after the 2017-18 killer.  look at all that green, looks like the winter didnt kill the volunteer, but something did

Possibly humidity? Then again that shouldn't be as big of an issue for a filibusta. This years winter was great, even for me in the western piedmont it was a 9a, much better than that 17-18 one you mentioned. Hopefully we don't have another bad one like that for a good long while.
