Sabal minor, let’s see them!!!

Recommended Posts

Sabal minor are so underrated. Everyone that can grow them should. Everyone regularly on the cold hardy section should have as many as possible. Being native to so many different states and areas there’s so much diversity in just this one Sabal species. I love growing them, but I also love seeing them. Let’s see some pics!!!

Mine is kind of hidden now. Back in the day it was the only palm in this area.

Wild population of S. minor along a creek on pvt. property in Washington county, Texas.  There are more than what is in the pictures.

I NEVER protect mine here in zone 7a NJ and they always look great except when the snow/ice pushed the fronds down. Otherwise they are care free!

Not much to look at yet, but these are a couple of my own seed grown McCurtain. Last summer they doubled in size so I am looking forward to see what they do this year.  V- shaped fronds right now, hopefully some more mature fronds soon. Seed sourced from Oklahoma.

Great guess, you are correct.  The first couple years they were in a pot and when planted had about 4 or 5 small straps.  In the ground they are much quicker for me, and last year they did quite well.  Pictures are from April 2020.

giant_minor.thumb.JPG.f8c14d55fecefde4bb05843d0746b0e9.JPGThe "Louisiana" minor is great, but my favorite is the giant. I was near Carolina Beach (Wilmington, NC), where a state park there has ancient minors with 8 foot high fronds- a wonderfull tropical feel. 

This is my "giant" from Plants Delights.

I noticed this fairly new south Louisiana state park while doing a google maps "flyover" of the area. Wikipedia says the park is "noted for its abundance of palmettos- mostly dwarf palmettos".

      For Sale is a pot of 30+ strap leaf seedlings from my S. minor Emerald Isle Giant (NC) mother palm. These are the only seeds from her 2021 crop I managed to salvage and grow. This palm is notable for its very blue leaves on cloudy/rainy days. It grows on an island off the coast of NC where it was saved from habitat destruction.

      Pictures of Sabal minor growing in habitat at Honey Creek State Natural Area, Texas (approximate GPS coordinates: 29.859131138720375, -98.48455621328327).  These were taken on January 29, 2022.  There are some other specimens growing along the river at the adjacent Guadalupe River State Park; however, they are not as prevalent, or grow as large there.  These Sabal minor were observed growing in three distinct environments: 1. Along the creek side and close to water; 2. Along and on top of the rocky hillside/cliffs; and 3. Out in the open in the Live Oak savanna.

      Pretty standard stuff but the whole lot cost me $35 including shipping. I figure there’s about 100 Sabal minor seedlings. I just couldn’t pass it up even though I have no need for them. I’m planning on doing some guerilla planting and a mass planting in my own yard.

      So last weekend we did a trip to Avery Island, La to the jungle gardens tour at the tabasco factory.  It was really cool. We saw some amazing sabals and sabal minors everywhere! We also saw some really nice cycads that I have not seen in Louisiana before. Could y'all possibly identify the cycad? We also saw a HUGE Chinese fan palm. Was wondering if anyone else has been there before. Also just letting y'all know it's a great place for a weekend trip :)

      I have two seeding Sabal minors on the edge of my Garden Lot. I grew them from seeds sent to me by a PTer who collected them about 10 years ago from a Sabal in Savannah, GA. He thought they might be a dwarfed variety of Sabal minor but I am not sure of that. Each palm is about 4' wide by 4' tall and is seeding. Is there any interest in these seeds from US PTers? I plan to send them uncleaned. Let me know soon as I plan to cut/compost them if no one wants them.
