Sabal minor 'Welfare' is from a very interesting population of sabals growing in the Kendall County, Texas ghost town of Welfare. These poor scrub palms are growing in mostly open grassland, with many trunked specimens reaching 8' in height. It's possible these are another remnant population of hybrids between Sabal minor and Sabal mexicana, but who knows. Thanks to Texas plantsman Steve Lowe for sharing seed so we could make these oddities available.
