Palmae -- Palm family

    Dale D. Wade and 0. Gordon Langdon

    Cabbage palmetto (Sabal palmetto) is the most northerly  and abundant of the native tree palms. Other names sometimes used  are Carolina palmetto, common palmetto, palmetto, and  cabbage-palm. This medium-sized unbranched evergreen palm  commonly grows on sandy shores, along brackish marshes, in  seacoast woodlands of Southeastern United States and throughout  peninsular Florida. It can tolerate a broad range of soil  conditions and is often planted as a street tree. Abundant fruit  crops provide a good supply of food to many kinds of wildlife.
