Sabal palmetto ‘Lisa’ Seeds

Recommended Posts

I think that most of the members and visitors to this website are familiar with Sabal palmetto ‘Lisa’, but in case you aren’t, check out Palmpedia’s excellent page on it:  https://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Sabal_sp._'Lisa'

S. palmetto ‘Lisa’ palms have fused leaflets and very stiff leaves.   Progeny of Sabal palmetto ‘Lisa’ supposedly have a 67% chance of coming true to the parent’s form, but results can vary widely.

I have seeds available from an excellent specimen (pictured).  I collected these seeds personally late last November.  
 

Seeds are $16/50, $25/100.  Shipping in the continental USA is $3.  International shipping is $20, since I have to send it as a package instead of an envelope.  Also, please be knowledgeable of any restrictions in your country.  No shipping to Russia or China.
 

DM for PayPal address and to order.

67% seems optimistic. Assume all pollen will be from standard Sabal palmetto unless you have multiple mature Lisa's in close proximity. Your chances are 50% at best the seeds will come true to the mother.

Maybe so, but that number comes from the man that discovered the palm in 1998 and introduced it into cultivation.

I got nearly 70% germinate true from seeds I collected in 2008 from a wild Lisa. A couple years later I got 40% from the same palm so I think germination outcomes can vary. Some palm experts claim 20% but I think that’s low.

I have fresh seeds again, just harvested in late November 2022.  Prices are the same for fresh seeds, as follows:

$16/50, $25/100, $100/500, $160/1,000.  Shipping will still be $3, regardless of the order size.

Hi @Bigfish- Would you be able to ship internationally with a phytosanitary certificate? I am a nurseryman from India. Thanks. 

Yes, I absolutely can!  I’ll send you a message.
