Sabal's in PNW

Recommended Posts

Paradise Found

 Sabal's are hardy in some parts of the PNW/ West Seattle Sabal garden.  This is not my photo found on Net. Photo is from 2015 and they are still alive and much bigger now.

The palms are Left to Right... Sabal etonia, S. causarium, and S. minor. I have a small S. burmdiana.

And not as slow as some would think. My S. minor put out close to 5 fronds this year and my S. palmetto almost 3 (first year in the ground). These are two palms I will not even worry about protecting in the upcoming cold blast. 
 

I just got some S. causarium seeds in the mail today, very excited about this one!

Nice! I guess you'll use bottom heat to get them to grow faster? When there seedlings!  

How much sun does your Sabal's get in summer? How offter do you water?

I have a reasonable collection

6 Sabal minor - 5 McCurtains

10 S palmetto

10 S palmetto “Lisa”

2 S uresana “Highlands”

2 S Louisiana

1 S brazoriensis

2 S “Riverside”

1 S “Birmingham”

1 S “Oregon”

3 S causiarum 

The S brazoriensis flowers and sets seed  I’m hoping my oldest minor will next year.

I drive by a couple Sabals in west Seattle almost every day. Not these but a nice one in particular I think a sabal Minor, low/small trunk with big tall wide lacey fronds. I’ll try and snap a pic tomorrow!

I will while they are small, then I’ll grow them up in my greenhouse in bigger pots once they are beyond 2 strap leaves. 
 

They get mostly full sun at my place. I don’t water too often, however I make an effort to dump all my old fish tank water on them whenever I do a water change. I’m sure they like all the yummy fish poop that goes along with that too haha.

OH Yeah! Plants love fish tank waste water. LOL!  Why buy it when you have your own to throw out. LOL!

Smart man, I do the same except my Butia is generally the recipient. I run the hose out the front door to the base of the palm. Gets about 30 gallons in summer. The house plants are the other recipients. 
 

The benefits of the aquarium water is that it is a mild fertilizer, warm and dechlorinated. 
 

With my Sabals I water them as much as I can in summer.

      this man in Sibley Iowa (Zone 4) grew a Washingtonia to 20 feet tall by building a greenhouse over it in the winter time. Unfortunately he cut it down but still has a smaller second one

      I am looking for seeds of Sabal x brazoriensis. These used to be available here in Europe some years ago but they have been increaslingly hard to find.
      Therefore, I'd love to buy some seeds if anybody has them. I am in Switzerland and have received seeds from the US many times without a problem.
      Thanks!

      The snow is almost gone and I discovered a new Trachy in my garden! If it wasn't for upstairs window I would never have discover it.  Trachycarpus 'Pancake". The leave come out horizontal and fan out.  LOL!  This is kinda a cool look from above. 
       
      In all seriousness all my palms did really good including the mules BxQ.

      Actually planted these this spring. I planted a filabusta but a rabbit or something ate it to the ground. 
      I also planted butia but it drowned in all the rain we got this spring. I’ll try again this upcoming spring. 
       
      Below is a mule , planted as a two gallon maybe, it took right off without skipping a beat.
