Dwarf sabal minor, 19” tall. There’s 4 flower stalks at various stages of development 875D6859-DFB6-44FC-979D-BF21171C29A4.thumb.jpeg.0f16309b541b46dada657de28700ad36.jpegSabal minor mccurtain, first time flowering. I can stand on the upper bed to the left and the flower stalk is over my head, it’s easily 8’ tall now. 2 flower stalks 5E6558B6-4BD2-4367-AAFC-309169B55366.thumb.jpeg.55098e84731e319d7f170f3208ebfbca.jpegSabal Birmingham 3rd year flowering, 3 flower stalks, same every year so far always 32B97B358-FC3F-48C6-BB5E-DF0939595345.thumb.jpeg.02f414cf50b9c0c8466d7a524a3e96f9.jpeg

4 needle palms blooming, more minor than can be counted, brazoria, louisiana, one birmingham (not sure if a real birmingham), waggie, 3 trachy with seeds far along.

Outstanding! :greenthumb: 2 of my needles have been blooming for a few years, I think I’ve narrowed down that one is female and one is male. I’ve never tried to hand pollinate them, might be on the list for next year….would be cool to have viable needle seeds

Yeah, I saw you post about them not flowering a few weeks ago. That’s really weird…you should be ahead of me season wise I would think. Still no inflorescences poking up at all on them?

The mccurtain had the trophy in the bag I thought…then out of nowhere the Birmingham shot this flower stalk up sky high. It’s one bed lower than the mccurtain and the flower stalk is taller. I’m 6’1” and my head doesn’t touch the siding. I haven’t measured exactly but has to be 10’0” tall, crazy. 7712246F-0C7F-4782-8D3D-054853EF486F.thumb.jpeg.5444f9f5309757cbcb39e2c4f7b7f294.jpeg

      I germinated a few sabal Bermuda seeds about a month ago and they are working on first strap leaf, I have a 3rd that's a little bit farther behind.
      I am absolutely amazed by the roots on these things though. I had them in 6 inch pots to start, and then before anything even poked above surface of soil each pot had a long root extending 3 inches out the bottom of the pot.  I repotted them into 0.7 gallon pots about a week ago and ALREADY there are two roots coming out bottom on both sides in each pot. 
      Curious if anyone else is growing seedlings of these and what your experiences have been. Curious on what to expect

      Yes, indeed…a few Brazoria seeds forming…I see now how it works on this palm…one male stalk and one female, same palm. Let’s see what I end up with this fall…Question: Should I winter the seeds outside in a dry cabinet then sprout in the spring? There aren’t very many but if I have any to share I will once I see what makes it to fall.

      Does Butia Catarinensis have a glaucous, bluish cast to it?

      Little 2 leaf seedling no big deal….Just wanted to move the pot over in the bed it was sitting on and definite resistance…slowly pulled the pot straight up, somehow didn’t break the root, and out comes this monster!!Then took it out of the pot and it did a complete 360 around the bottom of the pot before it found its way outUnreal, true desert palm, drilling deep for water, easily add another 6” of depth if it didn’t circle the pot first. Has to be a factor in their overall hardiness as wellInto a deep pot ya go
