CABBAGE PALM

SABAL PALM

Florida native

 

Florida's state tree is found throughout much of the state and is common in savannas, hammocks and swamps. The range extends through mostly coastal areas from Louisiana into North Carolina.
Cabbage palms are a straight-trunked tree growing to about 18m (60 ft.) tall. The leaves are fan shaped, 1-2m (3-6.5 ft.) long, deeply divided, shiny green above and gray-green below with numerous threads hanging from the segment margins. The petioles are smooth and up to 2m long. The junction of the petiole and leaf (hastula) is long and v-shaped. Compare this with the hastula of saw palmetto. Flowers are white, tiny and numerous in large branching inflorescences. Fruits are round and black in long drooping clusters.
