Sabal PalmettoSabal Palmetto
Native to the subtropical Gulf coast/south Atlantic coast of the USA, the Sabal Palmetto is also known as the Cabbage Palm. It’s been reported that this palm has survived temperatures lower than 13º C with winter protection. Unlike the Sabal Minor, the Sabal Palmetto grows a trunk that is covered in dead leaf bases called bootjacks that create a spiky, “basket-weave” effect.
