For this post, I want to highlight a wonderful Sabal Minor Mc Curtain specimen. This palm is not in Cincinnati. It is actually east of town in a southern Ohio town on the Ohio river. The grower of this palm has had this palm for a total of six years. It has never had any special protection of any kind. The first picture was taken after a snow in February, 2020. The second picture was taken early this month.  Happy palm growing!

It's good to see palm lovers in the area. 

This is my oldest needle (2003). I protected for 3 years, and watered and fertilized. Slow, but at -10 f only the tips burn!

I've seen photos of old needles in central Tennessee that are 6 feet high.
