Description This southeastern US native palm is very under used in the landscapes today. Blue-green palmate leaves and maturing at around 6'High x 8'Wide as a normal mature size if we can say it has a normal mature size. Many populations, which are scattered all over the SE.US. range genetically and climatically to attain varying heights at maturity from 2' to as high as 9+'High. Also its fronds can vary in width from 1' to as wide as 5+'. This palm is extremely cold hardy, reported to handle just below 0 degrees F with not damage. Ideal conditions are constant moisture, in rich mucky soil high in organics in full shade. This is where it grows to its maximum potential for size. It will tolerate full sun and dry soil where it remain quite small. This palm fits well in foundation plantings where an evergreen shrub is needed especially in damp soils. There are many selections of this species which is fully understandable because of its wide range from Florida up to North Carolina and west to Oklahoma down to Texas. Over this large range it grows in many different habitats but, is mostly found near swamps and water courses where moisture is consistant.
