These are from the Sabal Palm Sanctuary near Brownsville TX.

      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.
