Sabal minor (Arecaceae)
(SAY-bull MY-ner)
Dwarf Palmetto

This surprisingly hardy Dwarf Palmetto will lend a tropical feel to your garden, and the large fan-shaped evergreen leaves make a wonderful architectural addition year-round. Flower spikes reaching 6' have multitudes of lightly fragrant white flowers in summer, followed by green fruits that turn blue-black in fall. Slow-growing but worth the wait! Thanks to palm expert Michael Papay for seed.
