I haven’t planted anything yet. I haven’t found any palms yet. Where did you get the rosei?

Was lucky enough to get it from a local collector moving away to Miami

I’ll be watching your Sabal causiarum closely, do keep us updated. I planted one at my folks place last spring hoping to see it pick up some more speed this summer. I’ve got a dozen or so waiting to hit the ground.

I myself planted a very small S. Causarium last spring, didn't do very much last year, but took a beating this winter with our weather... good news is, while some of the outer strap leaves are friend, the spear is pushing and is doing fine.  Should pick up some steam this year.  The parent on mine handled 12F so I'm hopeful we can have some success on this one long term.

I have three smaller ones in the ground.  During our two cold snaps this winter I covered two with frost cloth, but the smallest one I left unprotected.  Spent close to 12 hours at 24F one night, and the following day we only reached 30F so it spent 36+ hours below freezing.  No damage seen so far.

Nothing planted in the ground yet this year, but that will change within the next couple of weeks.  I have a Sabal riverside, Trithrinax acanthacoma and a Trachy nainital waiting for me to to extend one of the garden beds.  Just need to get some time off work first!

Same here.  Mine did great last spring, summer, and fall; however, it just suffered bud rot and died after that early February freeze event we had.  It was covered with ice for two days straight in an exposed location (the top of a hill) with only frost cloth for protection.

Good luck.  Mine was about that size when I planted it last March, and it started really taking off by the end of the summer/early fall.  I think Sabal causiarum is one of the fastest growing of the Sabal sps.; I just wish it was a little more cold hardy.

Well.... It didn't pass away from the frost and ice event in February... honestly it's the most banged up out of all of the sabals I have, and I have 100+ now planting a metric ton this spring.  But.. the little spear continues to push out and albeit little burned it's moving.  I think we'll be OK.  Hopefully now the second year in the ground it moves a little quicker and hardens up.  Where did everyone source theirs from?  I received mine from Steve A, and again, he said the parent this came from took 12F and shook it off, so I'm hopeful this could be a long-termer here.

Why bother with Beccariophoenix alfredii when you can get a majesty for 5 bucks :P. Prettier imo, grows faster and more hardy too

I got started with some palm planting yesterday in zone 10a Rio Hondo - I'll start with a couple of transplants from SA.  First a standard mule:

IMG_20220313_190208.jpg

Livistona muelleri (recovering from winter damage):

IMG_20220313_190229.jpg

Brahea clara 'icy blue'.  I hope it survives the move:

IMG_20220313_190137.jpg

New plantings (not transplanted) Bismarckia:

IMG_20220313_190051.jpg

Carpentaria (not very cold hardy!):

@NWpalms@206 I have a waggie to plant next.  :D

I'm not sure if B.Alfredii is less hardy than ravenea rivularis? Alfredii is a bulletproof palm here so I don't know I just remember that majestys are water hogs where Alfrediis are more drought tolerant

Maybe in California. Plenty of water here (usually); majesties will pump out leaf after leaf when it's warm and wet.

Careful, Rio Hondo isn't as warm as far s/se Cameron. But you definitely still need more crownshaft stuff for sure. And maybe a Corypha or a Tahina if you can find one :P

Harlingen hit 30° as the low this winter but I suspect it was a degree or two warmer here.  Royals and kings are in the plans as are coco-queens (all large seedlings currently) but I have a Jamaican Tall ready to plant next to the Carpentaria on the south side of the house near the outside electric outlets!  I already have lights.

I have some Musa basjoo to get in the ground somewhere. We have lots of different flowers just for color. A little gem magnolia too, snagged that one for $30 at Walmart which is a deal compared to Lowes or Home Depot which runs for $70+. Unfortunately, i dont really have any palms that are ready to go in the ground yet, but ill let yall know if that changes.

I haven't - do you know where they are?  I visited Dr. Montalvo's garden years ago but don't remember seeing it.  I know he has a large one.  I got mine from @Meangreen94z last year about this time.

Planted a Sabal "palmetto" today. I am not quite sure if it really is a palmetto because of its tall stem but the next winter will tell. :huh:

I don’t know what that palm is but it don’t look like a Sabal palmetto to me. 
where did you get it?

I do have a few Sabal palmettos, around 3 gal size and they look nothing like that. Looks more like a Sabal Lisa than a palmetto.

From a local seller. He also had Sabal bermudana, etonia, louisiana and minor. I was also thinking it might be something else.

Bright side is you have a more unusual Sabal but downside is you have a palm now that you have to protect.

They are slow but rather cold hardy. They are one of the hardier trunking Sabals.

Like the looks of this Sabal, and it just might survive in my area.  Don't have one yet... but ordering a S. rosei and S. palmetto right now!

That's encouraging.. I may try one of these in the near future.  Any distinguishing characters that make it stand out from other Sabals?
