Sabal Uresana

Sabal Uresana

Is anyone growing this palm in the NW? If so, what is your experience with it so far? Sounds hardy enough temp. wise but can it take our rain?

Sabal uresana in PNW

I have several seedling Sabal uresana in the ground and several others in containers.
These are progeny from a 20' + specimen from U of Arizona in Tucson whose seed I collected in
December of 1999. The seed sprouted easily within two weeks of sowing. These plants have
transplanted easily.....not losing any after transplanting as I seem to do with Washingtonia filifera.
These seedlings in the ground are just fine and have made it through our relatively mild winter just fine. They seem to "grow" about as fast as Sabal minor so they are not a speed demon
by any stretch. I shared seed with several people in Texas, Florida and Alabama. I think I sent Ian some seed too. I haven't
heard from anyone else how their seed performed. I am optimistic that this Sabal will ultimately prove a success in the PNW
provided they have good drainage. I'll keep you all posted and as mentioned in an earlier post; I'll be back in Tucson at the
end of March and will try to gather some more seed which I'll be happy to share.

Thanks for the info

If you could spare 1 or 2 seeds or seedlings I would be interested. I live near Portland and could pick them up if needed.
Thanks again.
