OTHER: The Silver Saw Palmetto a native of the Southeastern US that is particularly cold hardy. It forms multi-branched clumps of evergreen fan shaped leaves that are 3 – 6’ long. The stems do have spines. The 2’ long clusters of flowers are fragrant with a sweet sugared vanilla scent. Bees & butterflies love them! This Palmetto is an important larval host for butterflies. The dense flower clusters turn to 1" berries, typically in the fall. The fruit matures in 6 months from the flowers first appearance, so can be more frequent in warmer climates. Birds & other wildlife love the berries. They are edible for humans, but are not really worth bothering to eat. The berries also have several traditional medicinal uses.
Silver Saw Palmetto is slow growing but long lived, with some plants possibly as old as 700 years! They will tolerate moist or dry soil, & grow well in sandy or salty coastal conditions, or in the shade of pine forests. They are a wonderful plant for erosion control. They can also be grown in containers and/or as a houseplant.
