Thanks for reposting those dennis and the sabals look great ncpalm! Do you know how long they have been there for? The ones in the 2nd link look relatively new, but the 1st ones look like they have been there for at least a year or more.

Thanks for sharing. Happy Thanksgiving!

love how the Ssabals are planted in the "midian" not many northerners do this esp. with palms. thats like "Florida style" very nice!

I would expect that Salisbury, NC is about the most northerly and inland location that large Sabal palmetto could survive for a good number of years at a time. Note how Salisbury is well north of Charlotte. Does anybody know of any trunking ones in good microclimates in the D.C. area? There, it wouldn't be so much the absolute lows, but the duration and the wet cold that would be the limiting factor.

Michael, I actually remember hearing of some large sabal palmettos planted last year in DC that survived last winter (lots of snow, but mild lowest temps). I dont think it will be a long term survivor, but its pretty cool that they survived at least one winter!
Thanks ncpalm. It seems like that palm has been there for a little while. Pretty cool to see all these zone 7 sabal palmettos!
