For a pop up volunteer that has rushed to this size w/out a whole lot of feeding, i find myself amazed & most certainly delighted to have this cold hardy sabal in our landscape. I've mentioned before that i don't remember how many years ago that i noticed the seedling but seemed very fast for s.palmetto.
One of my cousins trachycarpus is gett'in up there.
And his med palm is a beauty also.
After Sunday's rain shower. We needed it bad!
On these hot summer days it's a pleasure sitt'in out there on our pier only if there's a nice stiff sea breeze!
