To help keep photos up front instead of the crappy weather, here are some crappy pics instead.
Below is my first and last attempt to grow Sabal sp. Brazora.
Growing left of a Tennessee ditch yucca trying to recover after its second bad winter. The third winter took it out. (only mulched)
Below is a Sabal sp. Birmingham that Tony sent me in 2000 just before releasing it for sale at PDN. It lived for 14 years before vortex 1 took it out. I did not own that property at the time of its demise. This was likely taken a couple of years after I moved. It was planted from a 4" cup. It proved to be faster growing than I expected.
To this day, property owner will not clear out dead banana fronds.
Below are some sabal minors that have naturalized from mother plants almost 60 years ago from the estate of Mr. Charles Cole in Quebeck, Tennessee about 35 miles SSW of me. scatter those seeds friend - leave a legacy
Here is my only grown sabal minor originating from those Tennessee minors , although a small seedling planted over 15 years ago it is a seed producer and growing on the north side of my house in the yard.
I will be on the hunt for cold hardy daisyliron and sotol this year. Better than sagos since you dont have to dig them up if planted correctly and protected from abundant winter rain.
