Blue Saw Palmetto

These are seedlings of the glaucous blue form of this small palm that is common in Deep South pinelands. The glaucous blue form is found on the east coast of Florida.  It grows in full sun to light shade and is well adapted to warmer areas of the Southeastern United States.   It is normally a low, spreading, fan-palm with decumbent trunks but sometimes erect to 10 feet or more. Stiff fan leaves have petioles with saw tooth margins. Provides good groundcover on sandy soils. Black berries are medicinal. This glaucous blue foliaged form is very attractive.
