Some pics from Dallas this week. Was very surprised to see so many healthy Mexicanas.

Flawless Sabal Mexicana in Garland. Talked to owner and he didn’t even know what kind it was.

Have spent past few days in north Dallas suburbs and all im seeing are windmills in 6-12’ range and mature Sabal Mexicanas. Few random burnt sagos but no Mediterranean fan palms no washingtonias. Wish Sabal minor were planted more up here

Maybe create a new thread instead of taking over his? I think it was originally just about his yard. I know I helped divert the topic myself.

It's interesting to see that the Chamaerops with several trunks lost all the trunks but survived from the ground!  I'm pleasantly surprised about the Brahea.  Shame to lose some of those nice Butia though!

B. armata can be pretty hardy when it's good sized.  Beautiful palm, can't wait for mine to grow larger.   And those Sabals and Trachys take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.  Agreed, sad to see those big palms lost,  Butias etc.

Nice plants!   I can't tell from the pic if that's Nolina nelsoni or a big blue Sotol (e.g. Dasylirion wheeleri) ....  great specimen!

any idea what bamboo that is? I need a good privacy screen and that will fit the bill.

It looks like a Yucca rostrata to me..... I don't have a Nolina but I gathered seed from some in New Mexico and none of them looked like this.  I have some Dasylirion and it also doesn't look like this, but then again you can't see if it has hooks or not.  Hard to tell.  I would also be interested to know.

It looks a lot like my Nolina nelsoli...   but if it's closer to the camera than I thought, then yes it could be Yucca rostrata.  Leaves may be shorter than I assumed if it's close up, which would fit with Y. rostrata...  and that plant is so commonplace now,  it's not a bad guess.   Seems like every nursery is pushing those, especially Sean Hogan's 'sapphire skies' cultivar.  You're probably right.   :)
