Re: Long Delayed Plant Update Pics
Hi Jim!...LONG time! Hope your well. Meant to respond earlier after first post with update pics too. Looking great there actually. The Minors and other Sabals also holding up well. Very few Windmill Palms left in Mid-Atlantic too so glad to see that one. That Recurvifolia trunk is amazing!...
My Mimors and Needle are mostly doing well. One large Minor (I bought big) in backyard app. 5-6 ft. (I block winter wind). My most different/unique one (thats still surviving, lol) is a Sabal Blackburniana. It sometimes gets damaged but seems to regrow fast enough to recover fine. I'm sure one would do even better by you.
