I finally purchased the Beccariophoenix Alfredii here in Orlando Fl. I can’t wait to see how this beautiful palm responds in zone 9b.
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.

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.
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.
