Plant Details: Texas Palmetto
7 - 11
Sabal texensis is a medium height trunk forming palmetto that in time can reach 20'High, it resembles the cabbage palm of the southeast. This palm is presumably a naturally occurring hybrid between S. minor and S. mexicana and is cold tolerant to 8 degrees F possibly lower if placed in proper location. Like most Sabals it is extremely heat and drought tolerant once established. The Texas Palmetto will tolerate salty soils and salt spray along coastal areas. Like most palms it is a slow grower. Species texensis will do best in full sun and average soil conditions with some moisture.
All of our 1 gallons are grown in a 4x4" square x 14" deep pots and 3 gallon are grown in 7x7" square x 18" deep pots to allow for a deeper root system which aids in our Palms winter survival. Customers are having much better success with our palms surviving the winter over growers that use traditional shallow pots.
