Who’s growing sabals in Hawaii?

Recommended Posts

This may seem odd. Everyone pushes the envelope with the palms they plant, like how far north can you grow a coconut palm etc. What about the opposite? If I moved to Hawaii of course I would jump both feet in with all the tropical palms I could get my hands on, but I would definitely plant all the cold hardy palms I’m a fan of now too. To me it would be cool to watch the growth rate of a cold hardy palm in a tropical environment. Anyone have sabal minor, sabal palmetto growing in paradise? I would love to see pics!!!

Here in east Hawaii Island, have mauritiiformis and causiarums pretty good size but not trunking yet. Became a fan of Aussie Livs in central Florida and have some of them here too.

Sabels do well here on the West Side of O`ahu. With or without irrigation.

I just planted 3 mauritiformis seedlings! They’re not much to look at now.

      Dug this up from a parking lot exactly a year ago. It was slow for awhile but this 4th leaf wasn’t even visible 2 weeks ago so making progress. The old pic was from last August. The video below was across the parking lot from where I dug this up. So i actually have zero clue which one this is. This is in North Austin off braker and i35 on east side. There are like a hundred sabal volunteers growing around the property

      Hello,
      I recently moved to the Hamakua coast; and I immediately noticed the beautiful palms that completely cover the gulches on the belt road, leading to my home.  I have absolutely no idea what these Palms are and I would love to know what they are.  I have attached two photos showing the Palms growing along this stream on waikaumalo park.  I really want to plant some on my property but I would first like to know what they are; because I don’t know if they are terribly invasive or something along those lines.  Thank you in advance!

      I germinated a pair of Sabal Bermudana seeds about one month ago (first pic is from May 1) and sowed then after and have had them covered to keep moisture in and on a heat mat. Still haven’t seen anything pop up above surface of soil yet and I’m wondering if they might be dead or are just really slow

      I have a plethera of extra germinated Sabal sp. 'Praha' seeds to give away.  I had near 100% germination from the seeds I collected at the Praha, Texas site back in late February.  If you are not familiar with the ongoing Sabal sp. 'Praha' discussion, see the Palmtalk thread below:
      The extra germinated seeds I have are from the palm I labeled Sabal sp. 'Praha' #5 in the aforementioned post.  It is the palm currently thought to be the oldest at the Praha site by most who visit there (the rest are probably volunteers).  Reports of these palms in the Praha area go back to the 19th century.  In a nutshell, there is some mystery regarding what species of Sabal these palms actually are.  The seeds produced are too small to be Sabal mexicana, and larger than most Sabal palmetto specimens.  I am willing to ship for free to the lower 48; just agree to give them a good home.  PM me if interested (first come, first serve).
