What is the shortest "trunking" Sabal

Recommended Posts

The7thLegend

Can anyone tell me what is the shortest "trunking" Sabal Palm that I can use in zone 8b/9a?  I have sabal minor, serenoa repens, etc but I'm looking for a quicker trunking Sabal that stays short.  Sabal Bermudana, Palmetto, Riverside, or whatever?  A Sabal that will trunk but not grow to skyscraper heights.  Thanks.

No sabal will trunk fast then stop. Sabal Brazoria is closest to what you're looking for.

Brazoria is great, however, I learned there's great variability in length. Here's a pic I took at JFGardens of Brazoria sabal about a year ago and I was told most are the same age.

Sabal Birmingham grows really slow from what I've read. Not sure how tall though. I noticed in Dallas there aren't many very tall sabals I think climate affects how tall some will get @ winter or no winter. Cant go wrong with a nice Pindo.
