What are Texas Sabal Palm Trees?
Texas Sabal Palm trees are native to Texas and can grow to 50 feet tall. Their cylindrical trunk can grow up to 2 feet in diameter. The head of the palm tree can reach up to 20′ in diameter.
The palm has a dense, round crown of live fronds and a “skirt” of dead fronds hugging the trunk.
Texas Sabal Palms are planted widely for ornamental purposes and are cold-hardy to Austin, Texas. The palms can withstand a variety of soil conditions, salt, and wind. Their leaves are large, fan-shaped fronds, 4 to 6 feet long and wide, with a stiff, toothless leaf stalk as long as the blade. A central leaf vein forms a stout, curving divide between the two frond halves.
Long branched stalks, 7 or 8 feet long, bear pale flower clusters in spring.
The fruit of a Texas Sabal Palm consists of a round, black berry, 0.5″ in diameter, and appears in summer.
