Three Sabal MinorsDWARF PALMETTO (Sabal minor)

The Dwarf Palmetto is a small fan palm with a trunk that remains below ground. Depending upon age and growing conditions, the leaves can be anywhere from 1 to 5 feet in length and overall width. The smooth petiole (leaf stem) is a little longer than the leaf itself. This palm is native to the south (from NC to Texas) and is commonly found on the river banks and flood plains.

Environmental Tolerances:  Prefers a moist, sunny location, tolerating occasional flooding. Very salt tolerant.

Needle Palm

Needle Palm

NEEDLE PALM (Rhapidophyllum hustrix)

The Needle Palm is a small shrubby fan palm that grows to about 6′ in height. The Needle Palm does not form a trunk, but instead has a slowly lengthening crown that may grow to about 4 feet long and about 7 inches in diameter. The stems are composed of old leaf bases, fiber, and long slender spines. As each stem matures, more slender spines grow from between the leaf attachments. These “needles” are dark brown, very slender and sharp and can from 4 to 10 inches long. Needle Palms are one of easiest palms to grow in the NC Coastline region.

Environmental Tolerances: Grows best in light shade with very moist soil. Very salt tolerant.

Sabal PalmPALMETTO/CABBAGE PALM (Sabal palmetto)

Native from NC to the Bahamas, this large single non-branching trunk grows 20 to 30 feet. This palm grows at a slow to moderate rate. Sabals are harvest Florida with its boots still on. As this palm ages, these boots will drop off. V the boots are “shaved” off with a machete or chain saw; they are referred “Slick” Sabal Palms.

Environmental Tolerances: Hardy to zero degrees Fahrenheit, with some damage occurring at the 10 degree mark. Prefers good sun exposure and drained soils. Tolerant of salt spray and hurricanes.

 

Pindo Palm

PINDO PALM (Butia capitatci)

This palm has long pinnate leaves that arch and re-curve towards the gut from a thick, stout trunk. Typically, the old leaf stalks persist for years, although specimens with clean trunks are not uncommon.

Environmental Tolerances: Hardy to five degrees Fahrenheit though some damage may occur at 15 degrees, Pindo Palms prefer full sun and well dry soils. They are very salt and hurricane tolerant.

European Fan

EUROPEAN FAN/MEDITERRANEAN PALM (Chamaerops humilis)

This attractive palm has become very popular in recent years, mostly due I cold hardiness. The European Fan Palm forms clumps that can grow up to 10′ in height (in the NC region). The leaves are triangular and fan shaped. is an extremely variable plant both in color (the leaves range in color from 1 green to gray green to yellow-green, and the overall shape takes many form,,

Environmental Tolerances: Hardy -5 degrees though some leaf damage may at 10 degrees. Partial to full sun with good soil damage is preferred. This Palm is very drought and salt tolerant.

King Sago

King Sago Palm Tree

KING SAGO (cycas revoluta)

King Sagos are Cycas species, and are not palms. They have grown on earth since the Mesozoic Era. King Sagos can reach 4′ to 6′ in height and 6′ wide. They are slow growing.

Environmental Tolerances: Cold hardy to -10 degrees, however, foliage damage occurs yearly in our Southeast NC region with winter temperatures fall to 20 degrees. Leaf burn occurs, which only needs to be trimmed completely off in late spring.

Windmill  Palm

Windmill Palm

WINDMILL PALM (Trachycarpus fortunei)

Windmill Palms has a relatively slender single trunk that reaches 10″ in diari and is typically a bit narrower at the base than that at the top. The trunl usually covered with a loose mat of coarse gray or brown fiber. In older Wind] the fiber sloughs away to reveal a smooth ringed surface. Windmills grc along the Southeast NC Coastline region can reach a height of 10 to 15 Windmill Palms are one of the most cold hardy palms available.

Environmental Tolerances: Hardy to -5 degrees Fahrenheit, though leaf da may occur at 5 degrees. Windmills prefer full sun to partial shade with a rtc7 moist, but, well drained soil.
