Sabal <-- Run of the mill or something else?


Recommended Posts

So my son went over to one of his friend's house and when I dropped him off I noticed two rather robust dark green/blue balms in their front yard. Sabals are all over down here and are widely used in residential landscapes. So I see them on a daily bases and some stick out as exceptional examples and others are well... ehhh. 

Thought I would ask you folks you opinion on them. Two pics I snapped yesterday, the last is a street view from 2011.

I would also say this is a Sabal palmetto, I have seen some on Hilton Head that seemed to have a slight blue tinge to them. It looks healthy though.

If you look at the street view that's from 2011. That Sabal is pretty short, to the point, it's my understanding that you really need to transplant larger sabels for it to be successful (10ft+). I can't imagine someone around here planting a sabal palmetto from a container. They're too cheap to do that. You can have them installed for $200-$250 a tress all day long.
