My Mc Curtain in Cincinnati

Recommended Posts

I Know Mc Curtains get a lot of hate but I am proud of my largest one. This is mine 2 months after the arctic blast with a low of 4 degrees and full exposure to wind. No protection given to it what so ever!

Sabal minor are way underrated in the landscape.  Tropical evergreen in cold climates gives great winter look.

if you look to the right of the base of the palm, there are 2 sabal lousiana seedlings that made it unscathed completely unprotected and exposed to the elements.

It's lack of a trunk makes folks think it's not tropical and doesn't provide that typical palm look but I have grown to love them..  It's especially great to have local native ones in our landscapes.

It is not slower than my Blountstown dwarf and I can't hope to get more than 2-3 leaves out of any Sabal minor anyway where I live. So, I am happy with my McCurtain.

No need to hate on a good old McCurtain!

      Not palm related but I have this in my palm garden. This in my Eucalyptus Neglecta. It is a little over 6 feet tall. I planted it in march,2020 as a 3ft tree from Plant Delights nursery. It has never been protected other than good sighting.  It was un phased by a winter low of 4 degrees Fahrenheit and two weeks below freezing during the arctic blast last February. Cincinnati zone 6b.

      I planted a new sabal minor "mc curtain" in my Cincinnati zone 6b yard. I received this from and acquaintance in Wichita, Ks whos aid that this plant survived their brutal winter freeze in an un heated greenhouse in a pot! Hopefully it will be happy in my yard. Sabal minor " Mc Curtain" doesn't seem to have issues here.
