The Sabal Palm, also known as Sabal palmetto, is a medium-sized, slow growing palm tree that is native to the Southeastern United States and West Bahamas. They are tough, versatile, and ready to bring a little slice of paradise to your yard! When first planted, the Sabal Palm looks like tree fronds growing straight up from the ground, and as it matures they can grow with unique curves and character.
We love to plant them for curb appeal, for the patio or terrace, and around swimming pools and spas where their trunk and fronds can cast a distinctive shadow of filtered shade. Their large, green-colored fronds and uniquely shaped trunk will look amazing when lit up with landscape lighting! Plant a few and they can also be used as one of the most tropical hedges you can find!
Their adaptability to a wide range of environments and their ability to grow in most types of soil make them an excellent choice for our area. Super versatile and cold hardy, Sabal palmettos are easy to grow and love the full sun. If you dread pruning and maintaining palms, you'll be happy to know that Cabbage Palms have very little maintenance and pruning requirements. Also, once established these palms can tolerate drought, standing water, and brackish water.
Due to their slower growth rate we recommend buying as mature as you can to instantly bring their natural beauty to your yard.
