Hardy Palm: Sabal Palms – Part

Sabal is the largest collection of harsh palm available today. The genus has 15-16 species of the New World and seven are native to the South of the United States including S. etonia, S. mexicana, S. miamiensis, Sabal minor, S. minor var. louisiana, S. palmetto, and x x texensis. Trees like sand roads are better than mud, although they will grow in modified mud soil.

s. Bermudia (Bermuda Palmetto Palm)

(syn: S. blackburniana) We traveled to Bermuda in 2000 to collect seed for this is rarely offered in exchange for our original product S. palmetto. In appearance S. bermudiana resembled S. palmetto stolen but it evolved in a way far from the shore. As seedlings, our plants showed an exceptional growth rate far exceeding any other Sabal that has grown. Although our plants have existed since 2003, and although they were fried on the ground each year under 12 degrees Fahrenheit, they were able to return every season, but they would never reach their size of 20 … Type of defeats and purpose Of the presence of the palm tree.

Birmingham & # 39;

Birmingham was one of the most talked about hardy palms for years. The original palm grew by Birmingham, the Alabama gardener, Miss Alexander, who received the palm of California. She survived in her garden for more than 40 years before moving to the Birmingham Botanic Gardens in Alabama in 1976. This palpitations look somewhat similar, but are more rough than S. Palmetto, which is much slower than B. Sometimes the Palm will get a trunk, but nothing like a typical palmetto size. The original palm (after lots of re-sites) died inside the park. All plants are grown from the original offspring distributed by the Woodlands Nursery. There are many debts for what is actually this palm. It was considered the same as S. louisiana, S. palmetto, S. minor, S. x texensis and Brazoria, and in the 1986 Principles, a combination of S. mexicana or S. palmetto. More and more, it looks like Birmingham may be minor … DNA tests will be necessary to know for sure. Our 13-year-old factory now has 9 & 9; 9 x long wide. (Hardness Zone 7b-10)

S. x texensis & Brazoria (Brazoria Palmetto)

This rare palm, formerly known as S. x texensis from Brazoria County, Texas, is probably a form of S. breakers that can reach 20 degrees in maturity. It was considered to be a median hybrids, possibly between minor S. (without stem) and S. mexicana (long trunk), but DNA tests eliminated this possibility. The giant green leaf shaped fan is a typical foliage. Be aware that most plants are sold while S. x texensis are actually S. mexicana less hardened. Our plants, which had existed since 1999, did not show any damage in the winter. In our opinion, this is very similar to S. var var. louisiana, which is the last of the earth's diverse sub-variables.

S. etonia (Palmetto screed)

This mild poisoning in Florida has proved to be very dry sandy soil, another great cool cold palm. S. etonia is a dry, dwarf habitat and a subterranean walker, S. palmetto implanted with the same costapalmate leaves (center of the paper bent down). S. etonia also contains much smaller leaves with smaller pieces of foliage than any minor S. or S. palmetto. As you age, expect the appearance of tiny thread-like threads on the leaves … perfect for tailoring if you find yourself on the sand dunes of Central Florida without needle and thread. In the wild, you rarely see these taller than 3, but in the case of cultivation, may run out in 6 long. S. etonia has a wide range in Florida and if you are looking for hardness in the winter, be sure to get plants from North Florida residents. (Hardness Zone 7b-10)

S. mexicana (Mexican van Palm)

S. mexicana, formerly known as S. texana, is the Mexican equivalent of S. palmetto. Due to drought tolerance and low humidity, it is a better choice in areas of Texas and West of S. Palmetto, where it tops at 50 degrees in altitude. Much of the information written about S. mexicana mixes these species already with the other Texas strain S. Braxoria & Brazoria, which is much more winter-hardy and smaller than S. S. mexicana. Unfortunately, this mixture was transferred to Sabal seed sources, which contain two plants that are quite specific in this trade.
