Sabal x brazoriensis, a rare palm from Brazoria County, Texas, was identified by DNA in 2011 as an ancient hybrid between Sabal palmetto (above ground trunk) and Sabal minor (below ground trunk). Sabal x brazoriensis is the hardiest of the trunked sabal palms and should reach 20' tall with maturity. We have reports from Arkansas that these have sailed through a -15 degree F winter. The giant, green, fan-shaped leaves are typical sabal foliage, but the growth rate in our trials has been twice that of Sabal minor. Our offerings are two- to three-year-old seedlings. Because of the confusion with the name, Sabal x texensis, which is an old name for the less hardy Sabal mexicana, a new name of Sabal x brazoriensis was published for this plant in 2011.
