Another new Cincinnati Sabal Minor "Mc Curtain"

Recommended Posts

donofriojim1

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.

They are amazingly hardy palms...mine came back with no heat several years here in Iowa

and probably would still be at the old house if it had no been mowed down constantly.

Looks good!

I'll have to try one. My minors (Florida/Carolinas sources), show significant burn when we actually get a 6b winter.

That’s a very nice McCurtain for sure. How old is it? 50-years? Just kidding... I have one as well but to say it’s a slow grower is an understatement. I have that palm that I don’t have to care one bit about protecting In the winter but it seems I’ll die of old age before it pushes its first adult leaf...maybe that new leaf emerging is adult? I thought the last one would be but I was wrong. Anyway, excellent choice and looks well on its way to adulthood and in your lifetime to boot!

      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 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!
