Its awesome to hear from you and see that palm. Its huge and sure is a beautiful specimen.
I remember you were spending some time in Florida a while back and you bought this palmetto.
There was quite a bit of discussion on the old hardy palm and subtropical board on its lineage as some thought it was a sabal major
(Sabal Palmetto) and others thought it was a natures hybrid of Sabal Minor (dwarf palmetto). At the time, photos of the petiole extending into the fan seemed to be Sabal Palmetto
to me but now I see the fronds are behaving like a massive sabal minor will.
It really likes your climate and you have did a great job getting it acclimated in the Garden State.
You made my day friend. Hope things are good Terry and great to hear from you. Keep in touch.
