What are some good websites to find any kind of Sabals on

Recommended Posts

i recently got a windmill palm a couple weeks ago from Brighter Blooms which is doing well, but recently I have been trying to look for any kind of sabal palm that I can get my hands on. I would either like to get a 5 gal Sabal Birmingham or Sabal Minor. either would work for me. (or just a standard Sabal Palmetto) any recommendations to find any species of Sabal palms online? thank you in advance!

Check out Northeast Ohio Palm Trees on eBay for Sabal Minor. They have 3 gallon & 7 gallon specimens available. Link attached below:

https://www.ebay.com/str/northeastohiopalmtrees

Apart from seeds or small seedlings, Sabal Palmetto & Sabal Birmingham may be more difficult to obtain. Stay away from sellers who have listings containing phrases such as "freshly dug palmettos", "dug the same day you order", etc.

Hope this helps.

Can I see the brighter blooms one I was thinking about buying one. What size did you get I would like to see a pic of how it’s doing. I bought Sabal minor from north east Ohio and my Trachycarpus from palmpeii nursery on Etsy they only have strap leaf Sabal palmetto

I really like to work with people on this website.  Bigger better palms for a good/great price and a personal connection.  

I always browse the For Sale section, you never know what you will find.  Both @Sabal King and @teddytn are good to deal with.  Teddy has some decent size Birminghams for sale if you want something larger.

Atlanta Palms. I’m trying to promote them. They specialize in cold hardy palms and have sabals. They just started shipping and David shipped me a 3 gallon needle palm for free to test out shipping. It arrived beautiful and healthy. I’m going to order a few 7 gallon sabal minors from them. Georgia to Texas no issues with shipping.

There are good people here with a mission to get cold hardy Sabals in the hands of people who want them.  Lots of blood sweat and tears in the work but it makes a lot of folks happy.  It’s worth it

I’ve got a couple of Bald Head Island Sabal Palmettos for sale ranging from very small to a 7 gallon. The 7 gallon is one I sized up from a 3 gallon from Gary Hollar. PM me if interested.

I 2nd the vote for @Sabal King and @teddytn. Good guys, good selection, good prices :greenthumb:Another option could be palmsgalore on eBay. I haven't bought one of their sabals, but I did purchase one of the butia hybrids. It is a beautiful plant and was possibly the best packaged mail order plant I've ever received. Very reasonable price as well

Thank you for the tag and kind words..  I pride myself, as does I know @teddytn in not just offering Sabals, but we work hard to source from either other bigger nurseries in his case, or for me, seeds, and genetics.  I work hard to find seeds from good folks who aren't fly by night people, and grow them out from the beginning... I have bought things from eBay in the past, etsy, etc,  but 90% of the people selling there are.. well shady at best.  Thinking of the west coast hybrid folks out there that just makes no sense :)

Hey is sabal birmingham an actual palmetto or is it a sabal minor and also how hardy is it? Maybe I might buy a small one I have a spot I can squeeze it in if it stays small.

We have smaller sized seedlings available (2-4 yr old) and over time, they will get taller, certainly not palmetto height at all but are quite hardy.  They do well for folks into the TN area so worth a try.  PM if interested.

Thanks, will let you know if I need one. I have a Sabal minor I got from northeast Ohio palms I’m in zone 6 A and I will protect it in the winter. I don’t know if one is hardier than the other

Would you be able to share a pic of your palm?

I bought one from them but it just looks like an B. Odorata (e.g., leaves curved and not very flat, no hooks, etc....). I don't think they're deliberately dishonest, necessarily, but I doubt they are going through careful hybridization procedures.

See also:

Time will really tell. I'd be more sure to get what is advertised with folks like @Sabal King or @teddytn.

Regardless, what Palmsgalore provides is a GREAT deal even if its is just a butia. Very good price and excellent packaging. Healthy palm too that is obviously well cared for! I labeled mine as a Butia for now but, don't get me wrong, I am happy with it. However, had they charged double, I may have been more critical.

Added a pic of mine:

Here you go. I will say that it looks very butia as well, it has pretty small teeth on the petioles however. I'd seen a discussion on here where they thought that it could be (b x j) x b. If that is the case then I would assume it to be pretty butia dominant. My intent was only to say that they shipped a nice palm at a nice price. I'd figure that there sabals would be a good deal.

It's possible that your palms are BxJ F2 since the BxJ are self-fertile.  I had a BxJ F2 that looked like a Butia and grew at the typical speed of a pure Butia.  If I'm understanding genetics correctly 50% of F2 seedlings will resemble the parent hybrid while 25% will resemble Butia and 25% will resemble Jubaea with no hybrid vigor.  If it's BxJxB then you'd expect some additional speed compared to pure Butia.

Very interesting thread, thanks for sharing. I usually get too jealous venturing off into the 'Worldwide' discussion forum! Looks like you were lucky, for sure!
