This selection of Sabal mexicana is from seed collected from fruiting-sized plants growing in Dallas, Texas. The 40' tall heat-tolerant palms have large costapalmate leaves adorned with tangled white threads. We typically expect the Mexican forms of Sabal mexicana to lose their foliage around 15 degrees F, so we look forward to trying these outdoors to see if they are any hardier than the Mexican material which is typically in the trade. This is a limited offering, so if you like to experiment with hardy palms, don't miss out. Seed for this unusual offering came to us from Alabama plantsman Hayes Jackson.
