Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto is a small fan-leaf palm that is common in pinelands of the Deep South. It grows in full sun to light shade and is well adapted to warmer areas of the Southeastern United States. Normally a low, spreading 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. The Black berries are harvested for medicinal use.
