I have seen Washingtonia robusta, Sabal palmetto, and Butia odorata (281 north of 1604) at In-N-Outs in San Antonio. All were mature specimens. The Pappadoux on I-10W has a nice selection of palms around the building, including Phoenix dactylifera. Speaking of which, they recently planted a bunch of mature Phoenix dactylifera at the RIM (mostly in the apartments area, but some also near the new Southerleigh Restaurant at the RIM). Ultravision (Dr. Tomy Starck) is trying to grow two juvenile Bismarckia nobilis off I-10W just outside 1604. This is Dr. Starck's second attempt at young Bismarckia nobilis (his first two died after an overnight wet freeze we had during the 2016/2017 winter). Ultravision wrapped up their two new Bismarckia nobilis during the temperature drop a couple of weeks ago, so I guess they wised up (or their landscape guy did); here are some shots of one of their juvenile Bismarckia nobilis I took earlier this month: I'd figure the dominion area would be too cold, but the air turbulence coming off I10 might keep it warm. Where off of 281 did you see the Butia? I'll have be on the lookout next time I go to San Antonio. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
