Plant Details: Everglades Palm
7? - 11
Saw Cabbage Palm
Another wonderful native palm of Florida and parts of the Caribbean. This thicket forming palm loves sunny sites and is one of just a few palms that can survive in saturated soil conditions. This palm can grow to over 20'High and can form colonies of massive size in the wild. It is a relativity quick grower in height but take quite a long time to form a colony beyond home owner appreciation. Our seed are sowed out side and left to our winter weather in zone 7 (3-10 degree Fahrenheit low). The seed are left in beds and the ones that germinate the next spring are the ones we grow out and offer. Hopefully after many years we will find some to be genetically more cold hardy.
All of our 1 gallons are grown in a 4x4" square x 14" deep pots and 3 gallon are grown in 7x7" square x 18" deep pots to allow for a deeper root system which aids in our Palms winter survival. Customers are having much better success with our palms surviving the winter over growers that use traditional shallow pots.
