Help with Sabal ID

Recommended Posts

Dimovi

I am unable to identify this Sabal. The seeds are super tiny even smaller than W. filifera.

It is very cold hardy as the recent snow storm in Austin with temperatures down to the upper single digits did not have even the slightest hint of damage while most other sabal (except for minor) got significant foliar damage, the Mediterranean fan palms got defoliated and some were killed and even some Trachycarpus fortunei sustained damage.

The pictures below were taken exactly one year apart, so you can see the growth rate.

The leaf structure and coloration at the base of the petioles reminds me of S. Uresana.

Is uresana supposed to be that cold hardy? I can't find much info on it.

Unfortunately, I am not too wise.  But, I think Sabal "Riverside" may have seeds like that.

http://www.maderapalms.com/sabal-riverside-palm#:~:text=riverside fruit is smaller%2C and,mexicana.

Interesting.  I have seen conflicting info on 'Riverside' seed size.  This site shows quite small seeds for 'Riverside', but seeds I've collected from the Sabal 'Riverside' at the Arboretum at Constitution Park in Deerfield Beach, FL and also from Sabals being sold in a nursery in Riverside, CA as Sabal 'Riverside' were both large and similar to the size of Sabal mexicana.  @Jerry@TreeZoo might be able to confirm?  Here is a photo of the 'Riverside' at the Tree Zoo I borrowed from Palmpedia.

Actually, the tree in the center of that photo has been identified as Sabal uresana.  The "Riverside" is only half-way in the photo on the left.  It does have larger seed if I remember correctly.

I do remember the 'Riverside' was misrepresented in the Palmpedia photo.  I recall looking up the palm profile at the hotel shortly after visiting the garden and was surprised to see the same tree I had just collected seeds from (and taken a photo of) on Palmpedia!

Hmmmm,  "just collected seeds from".  I don't recall giving anyone permission to collect seeds from it.

JUST KIDDING!

Yeah, some strains might even be hardier than Palmetto.

Hi Dimovi, would you be willing to post some new pictures of this palm?  It would be cool to see some post-freeze pictures of it!

Here is what the palm looked like one week after the freeze. I could not see any visible damage of any kind. It is about a bock away from my house where I have two thermometers that registered 10F and under 7F respectively. The palm is not protected by anything. The thermometer with the lower reading is about 10 foot lower in elevation near a creek bed, so I assume the palm experienced temperatures around 8F or 9F.

      Good evening,
      I have just visited the palmhouse in Vienna and they have some really huge Sabal palmettos. Was my first time seeing them in person and I was really surprised how big they actually are. 
      I am searching for Sabals similar to the size of palmetto or bigger, which are hardier though. I am in zone 7b Eastern Austria. Got some Sabal minors but I suppose they don't get leafs as big as palmetto do they? 
      I have found Sabal tamaulipas which are supposed to get bigger than minor. But those are really hard to find here in europe. And other suggestions on big growing Sabals for my climate?
      Thank you!
      Will

      I don't know what is happening with my small Sabals but they don't seem to look ok at all.  This whole thing started since October I guess when the temperatures stated to go down but there hasn't been any freezing in the Houston area ever since. I will post below some photos with them, maybe someone has any ideas. I want to treat them with H2O2 because it seems that they have some rot on them, at least this is my idea. If you have any ideas please help.
      I tried to pull the spears and I could not do it at any of them.
      Indeed, these are all on the side where it is shadier but they still get some sun and in between the ones that seem not to be doing so good I have some that don't have any issues at all. It is just like it is happening random. 
      Sabal Palmetto, at first one of the leaves was coming out yellow but it managed to get some green under it and it pushed it out. The newest spear came green from it.


       
       
       
      Sabal Riverside, it has a few spots on its leaves and the newest spear seems to have some problems.



       
       
       
      Sabal Palmetto, almost  of its new leaves that have grown since I planted it are dead. The new spear seems to be green.


       
       
       
      Sabal Palmetto, all of the new leaves that it sprouted since it was planted are dead. The new spear that is coming out seems to have a green base.


       
       
       
      Sabal Palmetto, all of the new leaves that it sprouted since it was planted are dead.  Also, the newest spear coming out seems to be dead.


       
       
       
      Sabal Riverside, again it seems to have some issues, the newest spear seems to have some rot on it, something that looks blueish greenish as you can see from the below photos.



       
       
       
      Sabal Palmetto, the one that I got from our colleague @Reyes Vargas that was doing so fine, sprouting leaf after leaf and now it seems not to be doing so good anymore with its newest spear dead.

      Hi! This is my first posting time here but I’ve enjoying learning about palms and other tropical plants through this awesome site. I just acquired this new ficus but the owner wasn’t sure what the variety was, but I got a good deal on it, so I couldn’t pass it up. It’s not a lyrata or an Audrey (not fuzzy textured leaves). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi! I am a Palm grower and enthusiast from South Delaware. Contrary to popular belief there are tons of palms around here if you know where to look ! The pindo’s to my knowledge are a new thing the area is trying. There are three more across the street! Sabals have been in the ground for Atleast a few years (fourth year I wanna say, maybe more!) and are doing great. Of course I couldn’t forget the famous windmills! There are plenty other hardy palms in the area and I will continue to post as I can, thanks!

      So last weekend we did a trip to Avery Island, La to the jungle gardens tour at the tabasco factory.  It was really cool. We saw some amazing sabals and sabal minors everywhere! We also saw some really nice cycads that I have not seen in Louisiana before. Could y'all possibly identify the cycad? We also saw a HUGE Chinese fan palm. Was wondering if anyone else has been there before. Also just letting y'all know it's a great place for a weekend trip :)
