Dwarf palmetto (Sabal minor)
This palm is commonly known as sabal minor. A shrub-sized palm with bluish leaves, growing four to six feet tall and wide. Can be used as a specimen, or tall groundcover. The seed will attract birds. Grows in sun or light shade, with fastest growth in sun. Origin: A native palm from North Carolina to Florida and Texas, extending inland to central Georgia, northeastern Alabama and southeastern Oklahoma. The most widely-distributed palm in the Southeast. Hardiness: -5°F. Will grow anywhere in the Southeast
Some of my palms growing in Fayetteville,TN
I am growing the 3 palms discussed earlier - Windmills, Needles, and Sabal Minors.
Plus, I am also growing some other palms that are cold hardy and suitable for the Southeast, but may require some protection at times of severe cold (< 15 deg F). I show some of these for encouragement to plant lovers, but folks who are really busy and not willing to do a little extra during the winter should stick to the main 3 cold hardy palms already discussed. At a future date, I will add more information on the other cold hardy palms including: sabal palmetto, jelly, sago, California fan, Mexican fan, Chilean wine, Canary Island Date, and others. I also plan to add some “before and after” photos showing the growth and progress.
