(aka: Sabal minor YD 17-55) This unique, garden-worthy palm has been lumped into Sabal minor, which is bizarre if you have grown these two plants side by side. Sabal sp. Tamaulipas is a Sabal minor on steroids growing three times as fast, having much larger leaves, and much larger seed. The 6' wide costapalmate (bends in the middle) leaves adorn the 8' tall x 12' wide clumps. Our parent plant is from a 1988 Yucca Do seed expedition into Tamaulipas, Mexico, where these palms were found around 1,500' elevation. Although seemingly trunkless, older specimens develop a horizontal trunk up to 4' long that lays on the ground.
